This is according to controversial journalist Kemi Olunloyo.

Taking to her Twitter page she wrote that Hushpuppi has tested positive to COVID-19 and asymptomatic. She wrote;
“#BREAKING Ramoni Olorunwa Abass has contracted #coronavirus on detention??#COVID19 is real. You never know where you’ll catch it. Stay home stay safe and don’t be a person that will be uprooted from your home for alleged fraud. HushPuppi will now have to be isolated in solitary. Hope he does not commit suicide. Good luck to him.”
#BREAKING #Kemitalksinfo A source @FBILosAngeles told me Ramoni Olorunwa Abass reportedly tested #Covid19 +ve asymptomatic. Remember that it CAN’T be announced on US soil due to the HIPAA law. He is locked up at MCC Chicago, a #COVID19 ravaged federal prison??
We had earlier reported that Hushpuppi hired Gal Pissetzky, a highly respected lawyer in Chicago who specializes in criminal cases.
Hushpuppi, who was extradited to US from Dubai last week Thursday faces trial in Los Angeles, where his case has been filed before a US District Court in Central District of California.
Pissetzky confirmed in a text message he will be defending Hushpuppi, PM News reports.
“I do represent Mr Abbas”, Pissetzky said. “Most likely I’ll be following the case to LA too”
