Just yesterday, news went viral on various social media and news platforms, that Woodberry’s fraud case has been dismissed by a US court- many were surprised!
Well, we have got the facts right according to the information released by his Chicago legal representative, Michael Nash, revealing that the case against his client, Olalekan Ponle a.k.a Woodberry that the case was dismissed because the government charged his client with a slightly different crime.
Speaking to Premium Times, he said: “The government dismissed the case because it charged him with a slightly different crime. In the long run, no difference.”
While according to the Assistant U.S. Attorney, Joseph D. Fitzpatrick who spoke on behalf of the plaintiff, said: “We dismissed the complaint, but the indictment (charging 8 counts of wire fraud) is still active. We cannot comment on the dismissal of the complaint, but I wanted to make sure you knew the indictment is still active.
"Mr Ponle has now been charged by indictment, instead of being charged by the complaint by FBI”.
Woodberry is reportedly still in the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
