Nigerian Big Boy, Hushpuppi To Be Sentenced On Valentine’s Day

According to the US Department of Justice, suspected fraudster Ramon Abass Olorunwa nicknamed Hushpuppi will be punished on Valentine’s Day, February 14th, 2022. The Department of Justice is a federal government agency.

“We expect him to be sentenced on February 14,” said Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for the US Department of Justice. According to the Central District of California Attorney’s Office.

Hushpuppi cooperated with Canadian co-conspirators and North Korean military hackers – Jon Chang Hyok, 31; Kim Il, 27; and Park Jin Hyok, 36 – on February 13, 2019, to pull out a $14.7 million cyber-heist on the Bank of Valetta, Malta’s oldest financial institution.

Hushpuppi, a Nigerian living in Dubai, was apprehended by UAE authorities in June 2020. After being ejected from the United Arab Emirates, he was taken to Chicago (UAE).

Hushpuppi could face up to 20 years in jail, a 3-year period of supervised release, and must “make full restitution to the victim(s),” according to court documents unsealed last July.

The 37-year-old pleaded guilty on April 20, 2021, and the US Department of Justice allegedly verified this on Tuesday.
