Hushpuppi is said to hires top Chicago lawyer for alleged N168b fraud case


Nigerian social media big boy, Ramon Igbalode Abass aka "Hushpuppi", has reportedly secured the services of a top Chicago criminal defence lawyer.

It is no longer news that one Ramon Igbalode Abass, a 37 year-old Nigerian also known as “Hushpuppi” was arrested by the FBI in Dubai in June 2020.

“Hushpuppi” who is known for his lavish lifestyle as displayed on social media was arrested alongside 10 others for their involvement in N168 billion fraud. “The heist was called Fox Hunt.”

Legit.ng earlier reported that Hushpuppi was extradited to the US alongside one of his alleged accomplices, Woodberry.

“According to Legit reports, “Hushpuppi” is likely to be transferred to Los Angeles in coming weeks and he is said to have hired a top Chicago criminal lawyer to guide him through the process.”

“The Nigerian socialite hired “Gal Pissetzky” of Pissetzky & Berliner “N” he made his first appearance in court on behalf of “Hushpuppi” on July 6, Premium Times reports.”

“Hushpuppi’s” removal process seems to have made it difficult for him to enter a plea deal.

“According to Premium Times, his plea might not be taken and he may not be entitled to bail until his transfer to Los Angeles.”

“Pissetzky” is likely to counsel “Hushpuppi” on his transfer to Los Angeles but it is still not known whether he would go along with him once it happens.”

“Hushpuppi” is currently being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre (MCC) in Chicago and out of curiosity many are wondering what the holding facility looks like.

“According to the description on the official website of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the correctional facility was established in 1930 for the purpose of providing progressive and humane care for federal inmates.”


“The MCC has a mix of male and female offenders with the total number of inmates currently at 567. At the moment, all visiting to the prison has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.”
