The Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis in the Person of, Timothy Harris has alleged that suspected fraudster, Ramon Abass Igbalode also known as Hushpuppi married a native automatically making him a citizen of the country.
The prime minister revealed that Hushpuppi was the husband of Shawana Nakesia Chapman, a 32-year-old woman of St. Kitts and Nevis descent, but resident in the United States of America.
“Ms Chapman, a resident of North Carolina, USA, married Mr Abbas in Nigeria in October 2018, thereby conferring him with the right to St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship
,” the prime minister said.
“Any suggestion that citizenship was obtained through means other than marriage, such as the country’s citizenship by investment program, is therefore utterly false and willfully misleading.” he added.
