Nigerian online scam kingpin Hushpuppi, who was arrested in Dubai following a special police operation titled ‘Fox Hunt 2’, has been extradited to the US.

Christopher Wray, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), has praised the Dubai Police force for their exceptional efforts and for handing over Raymond Abbas (better known as Hushpuppi) and Olalekan Jacob Ponle aka Woodbery to the US.

The men were wanted for money-laundering and multiple cybercrimes outside the UAE.

According to Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, director of Dubai CID, they confiscated incriminating documents of a planned fraud on a global scale worth AED 1.6 billion ($ 435 million).
