Some protesters on Monday July 6 stormed the US embassy in Abuja, to demand for the arrest of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Timi Frank, Dino Melaye and other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftains.
According to the protesters, the PDP members should be investigated over “their link” to arrested suspected Nigerian fraudster, Raymond Abbas Igbalode, better known as Hushpuppi.
The protesters said to be members of Concerned Citizens Forum (CCF) held up placards which read “Say No to fraud, Interpol act now”, Interpol act and arrest Dino Melaye”, “Show me your friend and I will tell you who you are”, “FBI should investigate Atiku Abubakar.”
They also submitted a letter to the US Ambassador and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, demanding for a probe of Hushpuppi’s political allies in the PDP. They insisted that Atiku Abubakar’s frequent trips to Dubai prior to 2019 presidential elections may not be unconnected to Hushpuppi.
According to them, some PDP memebers might have helped Hushpuppi launder proceeds of crime.
