FBI Dragged For Using 6 Nigerians To Publicize Crime Involving More Suspects From Other Nationality

Nigerians are unhappy with the handling of the criminal alert by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have come under heavy fire on social media for using six Nigerians to publicize an international crime involving more numbers of suspects from other nationality.

FBI had taken to its Twitter page to solicit help in finding the six men who are wanted for “their involvement in ​business​ email ​compromise (BEC) schemes resulting in over $6 ​million in losses”.

The six Nigerians were identified as Uzuh Richard, who is said to have spearheaded the operation, Alex Ogunshakin, Felix Okpoh, Micheal Olorunyomi, Benson Nnamdi and Abiola Kayode.

“Help the #FBI find ​six Nigerian nationals wanted for their involvement in ​business​ email ​compromise (BEC) schemes resulting in over $6 ​million in losses,” it wrote.

However, Nigerians were not pleased that Russians, Chinese, Arabians, and other nationals were on the list according to the link provided, but only Nigerians were mentioned in the headline.

BBC and other news platforms also followed by placing the 6 Nigerians as the poster boys over 37 Arabians, 20 Chinese and 16 Russians who are all on the ‘wanted list’.
