Nigerian authorities are fighting with the American FBI and Interpol over Hushpuppi’s case with regard to his custody.
A senior investigator has disclosed that Nigerian authorities are fighting with the American FBI and Interpol over Hushpuppi’s case regarding who should actually keep him in their custody.
Hushpuppi may be a bit relieved if he is brought to Nigeria to face prosecution over his alleged scam. That is so because the judicial system of Nigeria is weak as compared to that of the US.
A clear guilty person could easily emerge a winner in court if he is to get a good lawyer and also rally some powerful personalities behind him.
Nigerian detectives and their counterparts from the United States of America are currently in a battle to take custody of Ramon Igbalode Abbas aka Hushpuppi, Premium Times reports.
According to a senior Nigerian detective who spoke to Premium Times:
“Immediately we got confirmation that he had been arrested in Dubai, we all started fighting to get him. He is a subject of multiple and conflicting interests between Nigeria and the United States.”
The Americans are allegedly resisting the request saying many of those he allegedly scammed in years of advance fee fraud, were Americans.
