Though the information available on the U.S Federal Bureau Of Prisons website indicates that’s Ramon Olorunwa Abbas has been released, it is however been reported inaccurately. KOKO TV can exclusively reveal that Hushpuppi release is into the hands of the dreaded US Marshals and not to suggest that he is free of any crime.
Been released as indicated on the BOP website can mean for example, a pretrial inmate may have been removed by the U.S. Marshals Service and subsequently released by the court with no further notice to the BOP.KOKO TV exclusively that Hushpuppi was in Chicago Jail after the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) accused him of funding his extravagant lifestyle from “hundreds of millions of dollars” from business email compromise frauds and other scams.
