A famous Nigerian Instagram celebrity, Raymond Igbalode, popular known as Hushpuppi, has been charged with multiple fraud charges by the police in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

KanyiDaily had reported how Hushpuppi was arrested on Tuesday night, June 10, 2020, alongside his close friend and accomplice Mr Woodbery.

According to the National UAE, the 38-year-old was referred to the Dubai public prosecution and is currently being questioned by prosecutors at the Bur Dubai section.

The prosecutors were said to have charged him for “obtaining money from others through fraudulent means.”

Security officers in the emirate arrested Hushpuppi and 12 others for online fraud that targets companies and individuals.

“They would send out letters from email addresses almost identical to those of legitimate companies, targeting customers of these companies, with the purpose of diverting payments to themselves,” said a senior prosecutor.

“Initial information includes that he was part of this gang which fraudulently obtained cash and cars from people.

“His statement was taken by prosecution but this is just the beginning of prosecution investigations.”

The report also stated that Hushpuppi is wanted for fraud crimes in Europe, the United States and Nigeria.

KanyiDaily recalls that the International Police (INTERPOL) had confirmed that plans are underway to extradite the suspected fraudster from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) back to Nigeria to face alleged multiple fraud charges.
