Freedom, at last, is the best words to describe the feeling of a Hushpuppi’s friend who was arrested along with the Instagram celebrity, as he took to social media to express nothing but gratitude.
The gentleman who goes by the name pac on social media was one of those arrested in June 2020, in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai.
Pac was arrested in connection with the fraud case has regained his freedom after spending over six months behind bars.
After gaining his freedom he took to social media to make his first appearance with a lengthy post narrating his ordeal and the whole experience of living behind bars for six months.
He revealed that Hushpuppi is still in detention and it is his prayer he gets lucky like him so he can get out and he expressed his heartfelt gratitude to all those who supported him during these hard times of his life.
Sharing photos of himself posing by an exotic car, he wrote;
It is not funny how a dramatic turn of event can change everything forever. What seemed a quest for greener pastures turned out to be the darkest 6mths of my life. The pains of incarceration, the groans of solitude, the agonies of torture, my life that is lived with hope and great expectations was crumbling before me.
A year ago today, I, Rahman(Hushpuppi) and some other friends got arrested in Dubai, it was a week to my birthday, I thought the end has come. How am I supposed to make it out of these? I came to Dubai for opportunities, but here I am, behind guarded bars. The experience was not palatable, I wouldn’t wish it on an enemy. Miraculously they got nothing on me. Freedom is good, but the experience remains indelible as I can’t free my thoughts and minds from the grips of confinements. I still have nightmares. For all it is worth, I am happy to walk the street and take-in the air as a free man.
I am thankful for life and for the grace to look forward to my next birthday as a celebration of life and not behind bars counting down days with possibilities of worst outcomes. Life has not been the same since, more so, with my best friend and benefactor(Hushpuppi) still in detention. I hope he gets lucky too. I hope he returns back to his friends and families in one healthy piece.
I want to thank everyone that stood by me during these trying times. I want to say thank you to obakaakaki for the ceaseless love and affection. Words can’t capture all that Biola Brain has done, @_standing9 thanks for the show of love.
Hushpuppi was arrested in June 2020 in the United Arab Emirates and extradited to the US alongside his associate Olalekan Ponle popularly known as Woodberry to face allegations of money laundering running into millions of dollars. (WATCH VIDEO OF HIS ARREST HERE).
