August 02, (THEWILL) – Ismail Mustapha aka Mompha, a former friend of Ramon Abbas, better known as Hushpuppi, has stated that the ordeal the suspected fraudster is presently facing is self-inflicted.
During an Instagram live interview Mompha had with Daddy Freeze, he said Hushpuppi does not listen to advice and that was why he was arrested by FBI agents and his ongoing prosecution in America.
Mompha brought this revelation to light in a video interview saying that the stubbornness and highhandedness on the part of Hushpuppi was the cause of his predicament.
THEWILL recalls that Hushpuppi, known for flaunting exotic lifestyles on Instagram and video sharing app, was arrested in Dubai after a sting operation by officers of the Federal Investigation Bureau, FBI.
His arrest was because of his involvement and links to internet fraud perpetrated across various countries.
Mompha stated that he would not have been linked with the Hushpuppi case if he had not invited him to Dubai from Malaysia.
Mompha further disclosed that when he had issues with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, he had to maintain a low-key lifestyle.
During the interview, he disclosed that while with the EFCC, he was interrogated by two FBI agents who could not pin him with anything.
