The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has revealed that it has arrested many Nigerians in an ongoing investigation related to fraud cases.
Naija News reports US attorney, Nick Hanna, made this disclosure during a press conference on Thursday, August 22.
During the press conference, the US attorney revealed that a total of 80 suspects “many of whom are from Nigeria” have been arrested and charged to court with 57 more being hunted globally.
However, this new revelation has come to Nigerians as a huge shock and a shame to the citizens of the country. In a reaction to the revelation, several Nigerians berated the actions of the Nigerians.
Here are some of the reactions as follows.
80 Nigerians have muddied the water for 190million Nigerians.
Shout out to all the #YoungNlegit individuals waking up at 4am everyday to make ends meet.
If the arrest and prosecution of the 80 Nigerians would lead to redemption, God redeem the image of this nation for us.

Good morning. #ThisIsYourConscienceSpeaking. When people disgrace our country by engaging in fraud, our reaction should not be “It’s not only us” or “It’s because we are poor.” We should condemn the perpetrators and list 80 Nigerians making us proud around the world. Think am o.

Pinning the 80 Nigerians Arrested to Tribe is such a good thing to do but when Bombs are pinned to a particular Tribe/Religion you find it offensive 👍 https://t.co/R7cmgx4hu5

FBI is now in conjunction with EFCC to bring an end to Yahoo Yahoo.
Start a legit hustle today don't put your family to shame.
See the list of 80 Nigerians caught in the act by the FBI.
Not to be tribalistic but it's shocking over 70 names are Igbos.

They remain innocent until proven guilty. We condemn evil no matter which quarters it comes from. At the moment, it remains a media trial. None the less, if God uses the FBI to help rid Nigeria of 419 Yahoo criminals, we should be grateful.
