Social media has been active with a conversation centred on Woodberry who is now allegedly sick as the Moshannon Federal Prison just 9 days into his detention.

The bulk of opinion online has been that the scammer does not in any way qualify for the empathy of Nigerians. This comes as people reflect on the extent of financial and emotional damages he caused to individuals and businesses alike.

Before their arrest, Hushpuppi and Woodberry were reportedly involved in a scam that diverted $35 million meant for COVID-19 ventilators. For some Nigerians today, it would have only made sense to stay under the radar with the extent of crimes they were committing.

While there is no justification if the duo had done their fraudulent activities silently, many people online believe that they could have been quieter about it.

Hushpuppi and Woodberry were known to always blow loudly on Instagram and Snapchat all for the sake of likes. It was this greed for social attention and validation that blinded them from seeing the consequences of showing off suspicious wealth to the public.

People on Twitter have been reacting with the opinion that the duo was foolish for flaunting their ill-gotten wealth online. Here are some of the reactions:

@EL_GEEZZE, "Woodberry and Hushpuppi could have bought a small island in Panama or Vietnam with a yacht, run everything behind the scenes; use 5-7 years to wash up all that money with legit businesses.....but no, they wanted to act like bad b!tches on the internet for likes."

@BeautifulBuoy, "Hushpuppi and Mr Woodberry had so much money they could have opened up big franchise all over Dubai and employed several young Nigerians there struggling, but they decided to be social media front runners on Instagram for cheap likes and hoes. Rot in jail dumb criminals."

@_The_Immortal, "Woodberry and Hushpuppi gotta be the dumbest criminals alive. Like have you seen them Mexican cartels move? They can afford to buy a small country if they wanted but you don't see them on social media competing for likes!"
