Hushpuppi remains in custody as court denies him bail. See why?

Instagram big boy and alleged internet fraudster, Ramon igbalode Abass, Popularly known as Hushpuppi was denied bail on monday, by a court in Northern district of Illinois.

If you recall, the major allegation levelled against Hushpuppi by the FBI is that, Abass was part of a network that made hundred of millions of dollars from business email compromise frauds, amidst other scams.

Hushpuppi applied for bail so he can go and leave with one of his "baby mamma's" relative in Illinois pending the time he will appear in court to face the charges levelled against him.

His bail was however denied when the prosecuting lawyer, Attorney Melody Wells, was able to convince the honourable court, that Hushpuppi is at flight risk, due to his many financial assets, deep ties to foreign countries, lack of ties to the United States, and the fact that he had never visited his acclaimed girlfriend and child prior to his arrest.

Apart from his bail being denied, the court also ruled that "there was more than enough justification to order that the US Marshall brings Abass to California as soon as possible, to answer the complain there ".
