The inability of the United States government to prove the fraud allegations on Woodberry has led to his case being dismissed in court.
Mr Olalekan Ponle, popularly known as Woodberry , a Nigerian accused of multi-million dollar wire f r a u d.
Recall we reported the arrest of Woodberry and Ramon Abbas alias Hushpuppi in the UAE on June 10. The duo where nabbed by the Dubai police for multiple frauud charges and was extradited to the United States FBI for prosecution.
The 29-year-old was facing charges bordering on wire fraud conspiracy at a United States District Court in Illinois.
Today, there are reports that the case against the Nigerian has been dismissed. The eight count charge was set aside after the United States government on Monday filed a motion through its attorney, John R. Lausch, requesting that the case against Mr Ponle should be dismissed without prejudice.
“Counsel for the government has spoken with counsel for the defendant and defendant’s
counsel has no objection to this motion.
A court order issued by Judge Robert W. Gettleman on Tuesday, said the government’s motion to dismiss complaint without prejudice was granted.
“Without objection the complaint against defendant Ponle is dismissed without prejudice. Motion presentment hearing set for 7/23/2020 is stricken,” Mr Gettleman ruled.
