Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has criticised a statement credited to the All Progressives Congress (APC), linking him to Ramon Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi. Hushpuppi, Woodberry and some crew members were nabbed recently in an operation tagged Fox Hunt 2 by security operatives in Dubai for fraud. Following his arrest, the APC called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and other anti-graft agencies to investigate criminal conspiracy linking Atiku and some other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders to Hushpuppi.

It is curious that the All Progressives Congress is mischievously trying to link Atiku Abubakar to the alleged fraudster, Ramon Abbas, AKA Hushpuppi, simply because he was photographed with Atiku at an event where many Nigerians had gathered.
