US court largely dismissed alleged Olalekan Ponle case Woodberry, a Nigerian accused of multi-million dollar wire fraud.
Mr Ponle, popularly known as Woodberry, was arrested, alongside Ramon Abbas (Hushpuppi) in the United Arab Emirates on June 10 on multiple fraud charges after members of the Dubai criminal unit were raided
The duo were extradited to the United States on July 2. The US government on Monday filed a motion through its attorney, John R. Lausch, asking that the case against Mr Ponle be dismissed without prejudice
A court order issued Tuesday by Judge Robert W. Gettleman said the government’s motion to dismiss the complaint without prejudice had been granted.
