Hadiza El-Rufai makes Hushpuppi joke in Sallah message


First Lady of Kaduna State Hadiza El-Rufai has sent Eid-El-Kabir greetings to her followers on Twitter with a joke about the suspected internet fraudster Ramon Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi.

Although she did not outrightly mention Hushpuppi, Mrs El-Rufai made a caricature of the suspected fraudster.

“Barka da Sallah. I’ve sent your Sallah meat by DHL. Tracking Number: Hush419Pup,” she wrote on Friday.

Hushpuppi is currently in federal prison in the United States where he is facing money laundering charges.

The Nigerian was arrested in Dubai and extradited to the US. He is said to have defrauded 1,926,400 people across the world of about 1.6bn Dirham (N168 billion).
