Plans are reportedly underway to extradite Instagram celebrity, Ramoni Igbalode popularly known as Hushpuppi to Nigeria to face multiple charges of fraud.
Hushpuppi was arrested by the INTERPOL in the United Arab Emirates for allegedly duping the US Government of Ventilators and Coronavirus relief packages meant for vulnerable people.
According to a report by the Nation, the INTERPOL is also on the trails of other accomplices of the fraud ring who are resident in Nigeria.
Commissioner of Police for INTERPOL, who confirmed the news, Garba Umar said;
“It is true that Hushpuppi was arrested by the INTERPOL. We are currently working on bringing him to Nigeria to face charges of fraud.
“Some of the offences were committed here in Nigeria and he has to answer for them. He is not alone in it; there are accomplices in the country who we are currently on their trail.”
Igbalode was arrested shortly after posting a newly acquired 2020 Rolls Royce Cullinan worth N280 million.
He had been under investigation for months by the US Secret Service which facilitated the arrest of the Instagram star.
