Hushpuppi, a Nigerian Instagram celebrity, is set to be prosecuted for multiple frauds in Dubai, UAE’s newspaper, The National, reported.

The newspaper said prosecutors have charged the 38-year-old, whose real name is Ramoni Abbas, with “obtaining money from others through fraudulent means.”

They also revealed that he was referred to the Dubai public prosecution and is currently being questioned by prosecutors at the Bur Dubai section.

Security officers in the emirate arrested Mr Abbas and 12 others for online fraud that targets companies and individuals.

“They would send out letters from email addresses almost identical to those of legitimate companies, targeting customers of these companies, with the purpose of diverting payments to themselves,” the newspaper quoted a senior Dubai prosecutor as saying.
