BREAKING: US Court Denies Nigerian Instagram Celebrity, Hushpuppi, Bail

Ramon Abbas Olorunwa, commonly known as Hushpuppi, was denied bail by a U.S. court in the northern district of Illinois.

It was earlier reported that Abbas, a popular Instagram star in Nigeria, was arrested in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and later extradited to the United States on criminal charges against allegations of laundering millions of dollars.

At a custody hearing in Illinois, a Illinois court ruled that Abbas would be transported to Los Angeles by the United States Marshal Service and won’t allowed to stay with his girlfriend’s uncle in Homewood, Illinois.

Forbes reports that his trial will take place in Los Angeles, where the case was more likely filed from Chicago, where the investigation is underway.
