Instagram has said Nigerian fraudster Huspuppi may continue using his account despite facing conviction for fraud in the United States.

Dubai-based The National reported that Instagram declared Hushpuppi free to continue using his social media account. It said the Nigerian did not violate the social media platform’s laws.

Hushpuppi, by real name Ramon Abbas, lived a life of luxury in Dubai – in a multi-million dollar money laundering empire – always flaunted his expensive lifestyle on his Instagram account.

He used Instagram to show his largesse, sharing photos of extravagant shopping trips, luxury cars, clothes, and watches.

An international police investigation uncovered almost $41 million in cash and 13 cars valued at about $6.8 million.

Further evidence in phone and computer records contained more than 100,000 fraudulent files and the email addresses of nearly two million possible victims.

Hushpuppi owned a fleet of luxury cars, including a Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maybach.

The Nigerian fraudster has over 2.5 million followers on Instagram. He has not published a post on his account since June 2020, the same month he was arrested by Dubai Police.

Instagram, however, said Huspuppi will be free to continue to use the site unless law enforcement in the US where he is facing trial rules otherwise.

The American social media company said it is enforcing a policy on inmate takedown requests in place for prisoners active on social media. Abbas does not fall under the categories which would validate account removal.

Instagram said accounts are only usually closed if they represent dangerous organisations or individuals.

The 37-year-old Nigerian fraudster pleaded guilty to crimes that netted profits of some $24 million from his victims.

Court documents in July 2021 disclosed how Hushpuppi played a major role in a school finance scam, as well as several other cyber and business email compromise schemes that cumulatively caused more than $24 million in losses.
