Pac, a friend of alleged Nigerian scammer Hushpuppi who was detained with him in 2020, has been released.
In an Instagram post, the Dubai-based Nigerian guy recalled being arrested alongside Hushpuppi on June 9, 2020. According to him, the arrest happened a week before his birthday, and he feared the end was near.
Pac states that his search for greener pastures turned out to be the saddest six months of his life. He said that he was released because security personnel had no information on him. The Instagram user also expressed his wish for Hushpuppi’s good fortune.
It is not funny how a dramatic turn of event can change everything forever. What seemed a quest for greener pastures turned out to be the darkest 6mths of my life. The pains of incarceration, the groans of solitude, the agonies of torture, my life that is lived with hope and great expectations was crumbling before me.
A year ago today, I, Rahman(Hushpuppi) and some other friends got arrested in Dubai, it was a week to my birthday, I thought the end has come. How am I supposed to make it out of these? I came to Dubai for opportunities, but here I am, behind guarded bars. The experience was not palatable, I wouldn’t wish it on an enemy. Miraculously they got nothing on me. Freedom is good, but the experience remains indelible as I can’t free my thoughts and minds from the grips of confinements. I still have nightmares.
For all it is worth, I am happy to walk the street and take-in the air as a free man. I am thankful for life and for the grace to look forward to my next birthday as a celebration of life and not behind bars counting down days with possibilities of worst outcomes. Life has not been the same since, more so, with my best friend and benefactor(Hushpuppi) still in detention.
I hope he gets lucky too. I hope he returns back to his friends and families in one healthy piece.
I want to thank everyone that stood by me during these trying times. I want to say thank you to obakaakaki for the ceaseless love and affection.
