A suspected Nigerian internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi, is spending his fifth day at the Metropolitan Correction Centre in Chicago.

Mr Abbas, 37, who was resident in Dubai, was known for living an extravagant lifestyle and flaunting it on social media.

He was arrested recently in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and extradited to the U.S on July 3.

He made his first appearance in a U.S court, Friday morning, in Chicago, according to a press release from the U.S Department of Justice.

Below is a diary of what has transpired in court so far as obtained by PREMIUM TIMES

03/07/20: Hushpuppi had his initial court appearance and removal proceedings before Honourable Judge Jeffrey T. Gilbert.
He appeared in response to his arrest and deportation from Dubai, the United Arab Emirates on July 2. By agreement and consent of all the parties and pursuant to the CARES Act, all parties appear by telephone conference.

During the proceeding, Hushpuppi was informed of his rights, the nature of the charges and the maximum penalties. Santino Coleman of the Federal Defender Panel was assigned as counsel for him for these initial appearance and removal proceedings. Hushpuppi waived an identity hearing.

The Court finds that Hushpuppi is the person named in the arrest warrant issued in the Central District of California. The defendant was informed of his rights under Rule 20 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. The Government orally moved for removal in custody based on 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f) (2)(A).

03/07/2020: RULE 5(c)(3) Affidavit in Removal Proceedings concerning Hushpuppi was signed by Judge Honorable Jeffrey T. Gilbert.

03/07/2020: As provided by 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f), the defendant (Hushpuppi) was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. It was ordered that the defendant shall remain confined in the Metropolitan Correction Centre or an alternative facility designated by the U.S. Marshal, but held separate, to the extent practicable, from persons awaiting or serving sentences or being held in custody pending appeal. It was further ordered that the defendant shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity for private consultation with his counsel while in custody. The court requested that during this time, Hushpuppi be given access to a telephone to speak with his lawyer and family in Chicago to prepare for the hearing.
