Fraud Charges: US Defence Lawyers Dump Hushpuppi

Hushpuppi is 'absolutely not guilty, runs a legitimate business', Lawyer says

The US lawyers representing Nigerian alleged fraudster, Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi have applied to withdraw from his case.

According to a report by Premium Times, the US Lawyers Gal Pissetzky and Vicki Podberesky said Hushpuppi stopped communicating with them and has retained new lawyers to defend him in the case.

Mr. Pissetzky and Ms. Podberesky have filed a motion at the United States District Court in California to withdraw from representing Mr. Abass.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that earlier last June, the 37-year-old Nigerian , known for flaunting his opulent lifestyle on social media, was arrested in Dubai by special operatives, including Emerati police officers and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) operatives.

The FBI said Huspuppi financed his extravagant lifestyle with proceeds of crime.

He is alleged to be the leader of a mafia behind computer intrusion, business email compromise (BEC) fraud and money laundering. He duped his victims, who are majorly in the U.S, of hundreds of millions of dollars, the FBI said.
