BBNaija star, Leo DaSilva has shared his thoughts about the new charges levelled against embattled Nigerian big boy, Hushpuppi.
The new charges has to do with Hushpuppi being linked to North Korean bank robbers and money launderers by the FBI.
The Justice Department made this known in a statement released which reads;
“Alaumary agreed to plead guilty to the charge, which was filed in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Nov. 17, 2020.
Alaumary was a prolific money launderer for hackers engaged in ATM cash-out schemes, cyber-enabled bank heists, business email compromise (BEC) schemes, and other online fraud schemes. Alaumary is also being prosecuted for his involvement in a separate BEC scheme by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia.
With respect to the North Korean co-conspirators’ activities, Alaumary organized teams of co-conspirators in the United States and Canada to launder millions of dollars obtained through ATM cash-out operations, including from BankIslami and a bank in India in 2018.
Alaumary also conspired with Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, aka “Ray Hushpuppi,” and others to launder funds from a North Korean-perpetrated cyber-enabled heist from a Maltese bank in February 2019.”
Reacting to this, the BBNaija star said;
“It’s hilarious how you will be laundering money for North Koreans and still be living lavish for the gram. I now see why they did all they can to get him from Dubai. If those charges stick, I will be with grandkids before he gets out.”
