Nigerian Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abass, a.k.a Hushpuppi, spent the last one year in custody maintaining his innocence on a multi-million-dollar fraud charge filed against him by the United States government.
Until recently, the lavish Instagrammer pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to Engage in Money Laundering, an offence that attracts a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment among other punishments including full restitution, as stated in his plea agreement.
He entered into this plea agreement with the U.S. government in the hope of getting a lighter punishment. And he has been doing everything possible to get that lighter punishment, as he has recently been on an accomplice naming spree.
Hushpuppi earlier named the former Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari as an accomplice in his dealings, leading to Kyari’s suspension and next, termination of his appointment with the Police Commission, while the case is still ongoing.
In a new development, Kemi Olunloyo disclosed that Hushpuppi named a female television and radio personality who was laundering money for him and all fingers seem to be pointing at Media Personality, Toke Makinwa.
Kemi wrote, “Leaked FBI files not declassified yet: A female RADIO and TV media personality has been named by Hushpuppi as laundering millions of dollars for him to hide and move around for business. Remember Hushpuppi’s plea deal will allow him to get a lesser sentence of under 20 years if he cooperates well in time for his October 2021 sentencing. The popular OAP should immediately hire a US lawyer. This money laundering issue is very troubling and worrisome”.
Netizens reacting to the names Hushpuppi have allegedly mentioned said the whole of Nigeria will be coming down the moment Hushpuppi finishes his accomplices naming spree.
Some even advised Toke Makinwa to relocate to a remote village and stay off social media so that she wouldn’t be found if the FBI tries to come for her in relation to the allegations.
Toke Makinwa as we speak is in the States and hasn’t reacted to any of the allegations leveled against her but some fans are advising her to run away for her life and not get interdicted with all these, like Abba Kyari.
Nigerian Music and Entertainment business manager, Soso Soberekon (White Lion), has also been found wanting after his involvement in three different fraudulent financial transactions he once did with Hushpuppi In Nigeria and in Dubai.
According to cutie_julls, an Instagram blogger, Soso Soberekon, has been invited by the EFCC (3 times now) with his lawyer to answer questions concerning his involvement in three different scam transactions he once did with Hushpuppi two years ago.

Cutie_julls also alleged that Hushpuppi named the popular online personality, Linda Ikeji and former senator, Dino Melaye. Looks like Hushpuppi’s list goes on and on till his sentencing on October 31st.
Sahara Reporters also gathered that Abba Kyari, is also lobbying the Nigeria Police Force starting with the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, and threatening to expose other top police officers who have benefitted from his largesse, should he be handed over to the FBI and extradited.
According to the reports, Kyari, whose links with serial Hushpuppi, were becoming too evident to deny, warned that he would expose the “dirty jobs” he had done for past and present Inspector-Generals of Police as well as some political elites in the country if they did nothing to stop his extradition.
