Mr Abbas’s legal representative, Gal Pissetzky of Pissetzky & Berliner, has told Forbes that his client is “Absolutely not guilty of [the] charges they are accusing him of,” adding, “[Hushpuppi] was running a legitimate business and a very legitimate Instagram account and did not take part in any scam or fraud.”

Pissetzky of Pissetzky & Berliner said Hushpuppi ran legitimate businesses including real estate, according to Forbes.

We earlier reported that the 37-year-old was arrested in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, by the Dubai Police.

The police revealed that upon the arrest of Hushpuppi and 12 other members of his crew, it discovered that fraud amounting to 1.6 billion Dirham (N168 billion) had been committed by the gang.

No fewer than 1,926,400 people from different parts of the world were also said to have fallen victims to the suspects.

According to the police, 13 luxury cars, estimated at 35 million Dirham (N3.7 billion) were recovered from the house where they were arrested.
