The previous sentencing date was February 14. Hushpuppi was arrested for scamming different continents to the tune of millions of dollars. He pleaded guilty last year to the charges, seeking a lighter sentence.
“At the request of counsel, the sentencing is continued to July 11, 2022, at 11:00 a.m.,” the court document said after the decision was taken on February 2.
Nigerian police chief Abba Kyari and several other Nigerian co-conspirators of Hushpuppi have either been indicted and at large or currently facing charges at different courts over the intercontinental conspiracy that spanned several years.
