Ismaila Mustapha, popularly known as Mompha, a former close friend to Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi has reacted to his (Hushpuppi) arrest and trial in the United States of America.
Mompha spoke over the weekend in an interview session with media personality, Daddy Freeze, on Instagram Live.
According to Mompha, since Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai, United Aran Emirates and extradited to the United States of America, Nigerians have been reaching out to threaten him that he is the next in line.
He added that with the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the US naming Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari as a co-conspirator with Huspuppi, Nigerians trooped to his page again to threaten him further.
However, he said Nigerians do not know how the FBI works.
He said that when the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrested him over allegations of fraud in 2019 and then re-arrested him in 2020, the FBI interviewed him and they had nothing against him.
He went on to add that for Hushpuppi, what “fu**ed him up” was that “he didn’t listen and he’s stubborn.”
According to Mompha, who said he brought Hushpuppi from Malaysia into fame in Nigeria, anyone who has attained a position of power cannot escape going through challenges.
He, however, added that in such situations, such a person must know when to keep a low profile.
Mompha said: “So, this life, if something happens to somebody, you’re supposed to use your brain, say: ‘Wetin be the next thing? Make I cool down or make I no cool down?’”
