Nigerian alleged fraudster, Ramon Abass AKA Hushpuppi, has been transferred to the Central District of California for prosecution.

 

Mr Abbas, 37, who was resident in Dubai and known for flaunting extravagant lifestyle on social media, was arrested on June over money laundering and Cyber crime allegations. He was extradited to the U.S on July 3.

 

Abbas was arraigned in a Chicago court on Monday and denied bail and ruled that he remains in detention despite pleas by his lawyer, Mr Pissetzky, renowned for handling criminal cases in Chicago.

 

However, Mr Abbas’s case has been transferred to the Central District of California for prosecution.

 

If convicted, Mr Abbas would get a minimum sentence of 20 years in the U.S. federal prison
