Officials also state that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I) has been leading America’s efforts to take possion of Mr Abass as he has allegedly being involved in other scamming activities. The F.B.I further stated that the financial value of the fraud could not been fully estimated owng to the poor coopreration from Dubai Authorities. However, they are confident that his exploits may have spanned across Nigeria, U.S and Europe.

He also 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 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,” said the CP.
