Nigerians attack FBI for listing 6 Nigerians among most wanted criminals

It’s another twist again as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has listed 6 Nigerians among the criminals they’re currently on the hunt for.

The domestic intelligence and security service of the United States took to their account on popular micro site, Twitter to share a tweet creating awareness for the public to help them in the search of the 6 Nigerians.

They did this by sharing the photos and names of these Nigerians.

The names read thus, Richard Uzuh, Alex Ogunshakin, Felix Okpoh, Abiola Kayode, Nnamdi Benson and Micheal Olorunyomi.

The FBI stated that they’re wanted for their involvement in ​business​ email ​compromise (BEC) schemes resulting in over $6 ​million in losses.

Meanwhile, Nigerians aren’t happy with the fact that they used the Nigerians as poster boy for the story, because in the full list they’re 39 men of Arab origin, 16 Russians, 20 Chinese/Southeast Asian guys also connected to the same crime.

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to share their reactions to the fact that the Nigerians should not have been used as the headline.
