Nigerian Police Abba Kyari, a 46-year-old Deputy Commissioner of Police and leader of the Inspector General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team (IRT), was named in a report by a US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FIB) officer on Wednesday, July 28, as one of six people who conspired to fraudulently obtain over $1 million from a business person.
It was reported that the internet fraudster Ramon Abass, also known as Hushpuppi, has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced to a 20-year prison sentence.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba issued an order to investigate Hushpuppi in a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, after the report went viral on social media.
Despite the fact that Abba Kyari has addressed the issue and stated that he never received anything from Hushpuppi, according to News Online, the FBI has produced a detailed document to back up its claims.
According to FBI documents, it was discovered that DCP Abba Kyari had a relationship with Hushpuppi during the investigation, which lasted until the latter was arrested.
According to the documents, while the investigation was ongoing, Hushpuppi allegedly took Kyari on an all-expenses-paid trip to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), where he was treated like a president from the moment he arrived at the airport.
