The US federal prisons website, BOP.Gov, says that arrested Nigerian criminal suspect, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi was released on the 20th of July, 2020.
Hushpuppi, is facing criminal charges of fraud in the United States after being extradited from the UAE where he was initially arrested.
Mr Abbas’s case was transferred from Chicago to the Central District of California for prosecution last week. Before the transfer of Hushpuppi’s case to California, the 37-year-old former Instagram celebrity was held at MCC Prison in Chicago.
