A worried Mompha further disclosed that Hushpuppi found himself in the net of the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States owing to his 'stubbornness.'

"People will accuse you wrongly, what about me that brought Hushpuppi from Malaysia? wetin my eye no see?" he bemoaned.
Hushpuppi was arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in June 2020 alongside 11 of his associates over hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud and identity theft allegations.
