The Nigerian celebrity whose real name is Raymond Abbas, was arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), over fraud-related allegations involving the International Police (Interpol) and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
The commission said this in a statement by it’s spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, on Thursday, stating that it is now tracking other fraudsters directly involved with Hushpuppi, adding that “he has a case to answer.”
The statement said;
The EFCC is familiar with grisly details of his money laundering transactions, involving many high-profile cybercriminals facing trial in Nigeria.
The Commission is engaging with the FBI in tracking victims of his fraudulent transactions and other fraudsters having direct involvement with him. Local cybercriminals with money laundering networks with him are also being investigated.
Hushpuppi was arrested on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, in the United Arab Emirates in connection with $35million ventilator scam.”
