The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba, has recommended that DCP Abba Kyari, the Head of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT), be suspended from the Nigeria Police Force pending the outcome of an ongoing internal investigation into him.
Recall that Kyari, one of Nigeria’s most decorated officers made headlines on Thursday after a US district court in California issued an arrest warrant for the officer over 1.1 million dollars involvement in Hushpuppi’s fraudulent activities.
However, FBI agents has met with the IGP on Thursday asking that Nigeria’s celebrated cop, Kyari be taken to the United States for interrogation over his role in the activities of suspected serial internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, more commonly known as Hushpuppi.
But DCP Abba Kyari has since denied any involvement in the said case whose victim is a Qatari businessman.
Vincent was said to have contacted the businessman following a disagreement between him, Hushpuppi and other members of the syndicate to expose the deal.
However, angered by his move, Hushpuppi allegedly ordered Kyari to arrest him in Nigeria and lock him up.
Kyari, after arresting and locking up Vincent, allegedly sent photos as confirmation to Hushpuppi, who allegedly sent the police officer some money via a provided bank account number.
The 46-year-old now risks a 20-year jail term if declared guilty by the court.
