Naija News reports that Hushpuppi had been denied bail in his ongoing suspected internet fraud trial in the US.
It was learnt that his lawyer, Gal Pissetzky who had vowed to prove his client’s innocence, applied for him to leave jail with an electronic tag and live with the uncle of a woman with whom he has a child, but US prosecutors opposed the bail application but the judge refused him bail that he might commit more fraud.
