  1. Popular internet fr@udster Ramon “Hushpuppi” Abbas, in a final attempt to reduce his jail sentence, has appealed to Judge Otis D. Wright, claiming he made only $300,000 from his involvement in the crimes he has been tried for. In a handwritten letter obtained by Peoples Gazette and addressed to Mr Wright and filed on Friday at the United States District for the Central District of California, Mr Abbas noted his humble beginnings as a salesman. “I started business over 25 years ago, trading and selling sneakers and clothing in our then neighbourhood and went from selling clothes out of my car trunk to owning my own boutique across my city and beyond under my company, MONEABBAS NIG LTD,” Mr Abbas wrote. In the four-part letter, obtained by Peoples Gazette, Mr Abbas said he joined Instagram in 2012 to share his style online. He noted that his business had gotten successful and had expanded into “luxury fashion, real estate, automobile sales and entertainment deals.” Checks by The Gazette showed Hushpuppi registered Moneabbas Nigeria Ltd on August 4, 2016, with the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission. In April 2021, Mr Abbas pleaded guilty to multimillion-dollar fr@ud charges and entered a plea bargain with the U.S. authorities in July 2021. Intelligence agencies recorded multiple crimes, including money laundering, cyber fr@ud, hacking, criminal impersonation, sc@mming individuals, banking fr@ud and identity theft committed outside the United Arab Emirates. Mr Abbas has been in custody since his arrest in Dubai and transfer to the United States in June 2020. In the letter, Mr Abbas claimed he was tort¥red at the time of his arrest, and he has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) due to it. He apologised to the federal judge for his crimes, saying he would use his personal funds to pay the victims. Hushpuppi had hoped to reduce his impending jail sentence from 11 years as suggested by prosecutors.
  2. U.S govt. agrees to reduce Hushpuppi’s sentence to 11yrs for helping detectives solve other criminal cases . Prosecutors in the United States have asked a federal judge to sentence Ramon ‘Hushpuppi’ Abbas to 11 years in prison and three years of supervised release for his role in a multinational conspiracy that earned him millions of dollars between 2019 and 2020. According to Peoples Gazette, American attorneys led by Khaldoun Shobaki in the U.S. Central District of California (Los Angeles) argued that Hushpuppi should also be asked to pay $1.7 million in restitution; $500K in fines and $100 in administrative fees, per recommendations submitted ahead of his sentencing on September 21. . The development came more than two years after the infamous Internet fr@ud ringleader was arrested in Dubai in June 2020 for driving multiple schemes that targeted victims in Europe and the United States. He pleaded guilty in April 2021 after prosecutors discovered his involvement in a separate conspiracy to defraud a Qatari businessperson, who lost $810K in the process of trying to obtain an elusive loan to set up an international school. The prosecutors argued that their sentencing recommendations were appropriate considering the gravity of Hushpuppi’s crimes. The government said one of his co-conspirators Ghaleb Alaumary was sentenced to 140 years in jail for violating the same set of criminal codes. . “By his own admission, during just an 18-month period defendant conspired to launder over $300 million,” the prosecutors said. The government said Mr Abbas’ criminal path was premeditated, even though he had a clear chance to choose a rewarding career as a law-abiding citizen. . . Mr Abbas’ sentencing, the government argued, was reduced because he cooperated with detectives on our criminal cases under investigation and prosecution in American courts.
  3. There have been multiple reports on social media that the Police Service Commission, has recalled the erstwhile Commander of the Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari. It can be recalled that the supercop has been on suspension since July 31, following his indictment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in relating to the Huspuppi fraud case. Hushpuppi and five gang members were arrested for allegedly being involved in fraud and laundering money meant to finance a school for children in Qatar. Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi. The affidavit accused Kyari of conspiring and arranging for Vincent to be arrested and jailed at Abbas’ behest, and then sent Abbas photographs of Vincent after his arrest. Kyari had denied any wrongdoing in a statement on Facebook, the senior police officer narrated that Abbas called him two years ago to complain about a person threatening to kill his family. He was subsequently suspended from the police force after a recommendation by the IGP, and he is now facing a panel as regards the FBI report. Yesterday, social media went agog with reports that Abba Kyari has been reinstated into the force by the IGP, though a recent report by The Punch has placed it all as mere rumours. While speaking with State House correspondent in Abuja, on Thursday, the IGP said Kyari had been queried, adding that the police were working closely with the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Attorney General of the Federation to discharge the appropriate sanction on Kyari. He also explained that the panel constituted to investigate the case had submitted its report to the SGF, Boss Mustapha, for vetting and advice on the findings. According to him, the police had only recently received feedback from the SGF and were contemplating their next step. The IG said, “I have not received any extradition request formally. But I have read from other places that there was an extradition request. I’ve not seen it and that is one. “Two, when this issue of Kyari started, we took our own action by constituting a panel to look at the allegations that were made against the senior officer. “The allegations were based on fraternising with Hushpuppi and even receiving some series of instructions on extrajudicial torture and so on. We looked into all these allegations via the committee that was set up by the DIG and we submitted our report to the SGF on the findings of our investigation. “We just received the legal advice from the office of the Attorney General on what to do next in terms of asking the officer to account for what we have gathered in the course of our investigation.”
  4. Embattled police officer Abba Kyari, allegedly extorted at least N1 million each from seven suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) This is according to a report by SaharaReporters. The report has it that the seven suspects were among over 50 persons arrested from the South-East during various raids. SaharaReporters learnt that the IPOB suspects were raided by the Kyari-led team between March and June 2021, whisked away to Abuja, and were detained at the former Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad headquarters, Abuja, notoriously known as “Abattoir.” SaharaReporters gathered from one of the lawyers handling the cases of the detainees that the police team under Kyari extorted between N1 million and N1.5 million each from the suspects later freed. It was learnt that those who could not afford the bribes remained in cells – including four married women. The women’s names are given as Mrs Maria Ezedialu, arrested in Owerri (Imo State) in March 2021, and transferred to IRT, Abuja; Mrs Ngozi Umeadi, a nursing mother arrested at a hospital in Onitsha (Anambra State) where she was receiving postpartum care; Mrs Ngozi Dave, arrested in Lagos State; and Mrs. Ifeyinwa Ebole, who was arrested with her husband, Cletus Ebole. SaharaReporters learnt that the IRT under Kyari, who is now suspended over a probe linking him to serial internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, alias Hushpuppi, coordinated the mass arrests of South-East residents under the guise of IPOB members with three other top police officers. The officers are identified as CP Abutu Yaro, in charge of the Imo State command; DCP Kolo Yusuf of the Special Tactical Squad and Tactical Intelligence Unit, and one DIG Tijani Baba of the Directorate of Force Intelligence Bureau. “The South-East residents were all raided and arrested by the Kyari’s team as IPOB suspects and detained without access to families or lawyers until some of them were taken to an Area Court in Abuja and granted bail,” Emeka Umeagbalasi, leader of the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law, a civil rights organisation based in Anambra State, told SaharaReporters. “Nine remanded survivors are Citizens Anthony Mba, Vincent Kalu, Iloejebechukwu Ikeji, Ezike Chukwuebuka Victor, Bede Obizue, Uchenna Ugwu, Okeke Boniface, Enemuo Vitus, and Okechukwu Oguguo. “At abduction, their mobile phones were seized leading to electronic disappearance of the victims’ bank deposits and tracking down of their friends, business associates, in-laws, and relatives, numbering dozens who were abducted,” he added. “Intersociety was also reliably informed that seven of the 24 survivors in that section of the IRT later left after each of them was forced to part with N1 million or N1.1 million, remaining 17 of them who could not afford the sum.” The Intersociety in a report released on Tuesday and obtained by SaharaReporters added that there are at least 80 uninvestigated and untried South-East Residents that have been taken away by the police since March 2021. “The recent custodial killing of detained Igbo citizens was disclosed to Intersociety by an activist and legal practitioner who is very conversant with the matter and has been following same. There are hundreds of others arrested mainly in Imo State under the direct supervision of CP Abutu Yaro and handed over to DCP Abba Kyari’s team for ‘further interrogation and investigation in Abuja’. Some may have been killed. “Information about the women and others was received a few days ago after 15 of the remaining survivors in that section were arraigned at an Abuja Area Court on August 2 and remanded at Keffi in Nasarawa State,” the report partly reads.

  5. Dino Melaye has silenced rumour mongers saying he never asked anyone not to post his picture with Hushpuppi, assuring Nigerians that he is a political celebrity. I never asked anyone not to post my picture with Hushpuppi – Melaye Dino reacted to this on his Instagram page with a laughing photo and wrote; ”There was never a time l ask people not to post my pictures with Hushpuppi or anyone for that matter because there is no reason to. Am a political celebrity, please continue posting jare. Wetin bird chop na im e go carry fly. SDM” s
  6. Borno State Governor, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum and his predecessor, Senator Kashim Shettima, have denied reports of visiting suspended police officer, Abba Kyari. Hushpuppi and five gang members were arrested for allegedly being involved in fraud and laundering money meant to finance a school for children in Qatar. Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi. The affidavit accused Kyari of conspiring and arranging for Vincent to be arrested and jailed at Abbas’ behest, and then sent Abbas photographs of Vincent after his arrest. Kyari had denied any wrongdoing in a statement on Facebook, the senior police officer narrated that Abbas called him two years ago to complain about a person threatening to kill his family. He was subsequently suspended from the police force after a recommendation by the IGP, and he is now facing a panel as regards the FBI report. A video of Zulum and Shettima with Kyari surfaced online with claims that both men paid a solidarity visit to the embattled police officer who has been indicted in the Hushpuppi fraud case. A statement released by the spokesperson of Governor Zulum, Isa Gusau, says the governor and his predecessor do not know the residence of embattled DCP Abba Kyari, let alone visiting him. Gusau said he resorted to issuing the clarification since Abba Kyari who promised to issue the clarification himself did not do so, more than four hours after making the promise to the spokesman. Isa Gusau, said the video in circulation was recorded by some associates of Abba Kyari at the residence of Senator Kashim Shettima in Abuja on June 30, 2021, when Abba Kyari paid an empathetic visit to Shettima following the mischievous circulation of rumors that the Senator had died in the UK. He said Kyari himself had shared the same video on his verified Facebook wall on June 30, shortly after he visited Shettima. He added that Kyari who hails from Borno State and in Shettima’s constituency visited the former Governor to wish him well like many others had visited the Senator during the time. Gusau released a video of some sympathizers who had also visited the Senator the same period, which showed the senator receiving them in his house, the same place being described as Abba Kyari’s house. He also pointed observers to take note of the TV behind Zulum and Abba Kyari with a CNN breaking news on the release of American Comedian actor, Bill Cosby, which, as can be verified by anyone online, happened on June 30, 2021. The spokesman called on Abba Kyari to issue a similar clarification as he had promised when the spokesman called his attention to the misrepresentation given the fact it was Kyari himself who took that video and released it on his Facebook page on June 30, 2021.

  8. Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, commonly known as Hushpuppi, Hush or Ray Hushpuppi (born October 11, 1982) is a Nigerian Instagram celebrity who is facing criminal charges in the United States of conspiracy to launder money obtained from business email compromise frauds and other scams, including schemes that defrauded a U.S. law firm of about $40M, illegally transferred $14.7M from a foreign financial institution and targeted to steal $124M from an English football club until his arrest by the Dubai Police in June 2020 and his extradition to the United States. Abbas had a global following of over 2.5 million followers on Instagram where he posted pictures and videos of his lavish spending on exotic cars, watches, designer clothes, bags from luxury brands like Gucci, Fendi and Louis Vuitton and of himself boarding helicopters, with celebrity, footballers and Nigerian politicians or while on charter jets. He claimed to be a real estate developer. He holds a passport from St Kitts and Nevis. See Hushpuppi's Last Instagram Post Before His Arrest & Detention:
  9. The controversial July 29 update had elicited thousands of comments and inspired a flurry of biting memes on social media. Nigeria’s disgraced police chief Abba Kyari has deleted his infamous Facebook update in which he responded to his indictment in the United States with claims that he was only rendering tailoring services to notorious fraudster Ramon ‘Hushpuppi’ Abbas. Mr Kyari took to Facebook hours after his indictment was announced by the U.S. Department of Justice on July 29, saying barely knew Hushpuppi and imploring his supporters should disregard the allegations because they contained no substance. In the post that subsequently elicited thousands of comments and inspired a flurry of biting memes on social media, the suspended deputy police commissioner said his only connection with Hushpuppi was when the fraudster saw some traditional attires on his social media page and contacted him that he liked them. “Nobody demanded any money from Abbas Hushpuppi and nobody collected any money from him,” Mr Kyari emphasised. “We responded to a distress call he made on threat to his family and released the Suspect when we discovered there was no life threat from the Suspect. This is the true story. Vincent is alive, he can be contacted.” But it was soon clear that Mr Kyari was lying about his relationship with Hushpuppi and what he knew of the fraud after the syndicate’s full indictment and Mr Kyari’s arrest warrant were obtained and first published by Peoples Gazette. He still went on to circulate a statement via WhatsApp, claiming the documents published by The Gazette were fake but this time without the bit about the tailoring services he rendered to Hushpuppi. Following police’s confirmation that the documents were genuinely from the U.S. authorities, Mr Kyari was suspended from the police and a panel was raised to probe his involvement in a cross-border scheme of wire fraud and money laundering. At about 12:03 a.m. on August 4, Mr Kyari initially edited the Facebook post to remove the N300,000 claim and admit that he received N8 million from Hushpuppi to hold a member of their syndicate, Chibuzo Vincent, in custody for a $1.1 million cyberheist to pull through following The Gazette’s story on that affair. By 4:01 a.m., barely four hours later, both the original post and the edits had disappeared from Mr Kyari’s page. Why the disgraced officers decided to remove the entire post after it had been seeing presumably by millions across the world was not immediately clear. He did not return a request from The Gazette seeking comments Gazettengr Abba Kyari's Facebook Profile
  10. Suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, who formerly headed the Intelligence Response Team, on Tuesday appeared before the Special Investigation Panel set up by the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, and was grilled for several hours. SaharaReporters learnt that Kyari, who appeared before the panel headed by the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in-charge of the Force Criminal Investigations Department, Joseph Egbunike, claimed he was innocent in the $1.1million Internet fraud perpetrated by serial fraudster, Abbas Ramon, popularly known as Hushpuppi, and five others. “Kyari has not admitted participating in the fraud yet. He admitted that he lived a large life and has a community of friends locally and abroad, but he is still insisting that monies did not pass between him and the fraudster. He was cross-examined till the evening hours. He would still be re-invited,” a top source disclosed. “His defence seems weak before the panel but they are careful not to be quick in nailing him in the matter because of the boomerang effects,” the source added. SaharaReporters had also last Friday reported that Kyari had assembled a team of lawyers to fight off his looming arrest and extradition by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States, which appears to be hell bent on his matter. SaharaReporters had stated that Kyari was also lobbying the Nigeria Police Force starting with the Inspector-General of Police, and threatening to expose other top police officers who have benefitted from his largesse, should he be handed over to the FBI and extradited. SaharaReporters had gathered that Kyari, whose links with serial internet fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, alias Hushpuppi, were becoming too evident to deny, warned that he would expose the “dirty jobs” he had done for past and present Inspector-Generals of Police as well as some political elites in the country, if they did nothing to stop his extradition. “There was a stormy meeting on Friday at the Inspector-General of Police’s office between the IGP and police authorities and the FBI agents. Kyari on his part is threatening that many senior officers benefited from his ‘generosity’ and if he’s betrayed, he would expose them. “He’s now got a team of lawyers. Abba Kyari is still being assured by the police hierarchy that he would not be extradited to the US. He has warned that if he is extradited, the current and past IGPs and members of the political elites he provided support for and assisted for dirty jobs will all be exposed," a top source had told SaharaReporters. SaharaReporters reported that Kyari was given till next week to formally respond to the allegations till his extradition to the US would be decided by the police authorities. SaharaReporters since Thursday in several reports on Kyari exposed how Hushpuppi claimed to have offered bribes to the top police officer, going by court documents that were ordered unsealed. The United States Attorney’s Office, Central District of California, had also issued an arrest warrant against Kyari for his alleged links to Hushpuppi, who is standing trial for various offences that include internet fraud and money laundering. The court documents also outlined a dispute among members of the Hushpuppi conspiracy, which allegedly prompted him to arrange to have an individual identified as ‘co-conspirator’ Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, jailed in Nigeria by DCP Kyari. The Inspector-General of Police has ordered an internal review of the United States’ authorities’ allegations against Kyari. Saharareporters
  11. The suspended deputy commissioner of police, Abba Kyari, has edited his controversial Facebook post explaining relationship with Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, 12 times last night before finally deleting the post on Wednesday morning. Gimba Kakanda, a columnist, made the observation on Wednesday, saying the embattled police officer edited his post 12 times on Tuesday night before finally taking off the post. “As at last night, DCP Abba Kyari had edited his Facebook statement a record 12 times. He edited out his role as a Kaftan plug for Hushpuppi and wrote that he was a mere debt collector for that indicted fraudster; an even more incriminating role. “This morning, he deleted the entire post. How on earth did this man get to head an intelligence unit in the police force? He’s far from possessing the capability to reason cleverly and measure the gravity of his actions in a scandal this size,” Mr Kakanda said. In wake of the scandal last week, Mr Kyari had hastily released a statement on Facebook narrating his relationship with Hushpuppi and how the fraudster paid about N300,000 to a tailor he linked him up with. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, had secured a court order for Mr Kyari’s arrest over the indictment while the Nigerian Police Force set up a panel to probe his relationship with Hushpuppi. As the controversy deepens and police began probe, Mr Kyari began the alteration of the Facebook version of his statement to further include another money-related case he handled involving Hushpuppi and removed the tailor connection bit. “Nobody demanded or collected any money from Abbas Hushpuppi. He can be interviewed publicly in the presence of world media by the people holding him to confirm this,” he said in the oft-edited post before removal. “He also called for another case in June 2020 and complained about a financial transaction with a second person whom he said his friend sent 8 million naira to and pleaded for his friends money to be recovered. “He sent transaction slips and other evidences to prove their case against the person, all these can be verified from the Hushpuppi since he is still in custody. “And it can be verified from person who collected the 8 million naira from Hushpuppi’s friend whom they complained about is alive and is in Nigeria. “Generally what ever investigation steps/tactics that is being taken in most cases especially on the parties in this type of case from January to June is not for public consumption. This is the true story.”
  12. The office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, has disclosed that they are yet to receive an official notice of an arrest warrant issued on embattled police officer, DCP Abba Kyari. Umar Gwandu, an aide to AGF Abubakar Malami disclosed this on Monday. POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that Kyari has been in hot water since last week after he was indicted in a US court of being an accomplice and associate of disgraced fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abass also known as 'Hushpuppi'. He stated that the office has not received any official communication on the arrest warrant issued by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI on Kyari. Although Kyari has denied all the accusations, the Inspector-general of Police, Usman Baba Alkali ordered his suspension and has setup a panel to investigate him. On Monday night, the IGP also removed him as head of the Intelligence response Team and appointed DCP Tunji Disu as his replacement.
  13. Finland-based ardent member of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Simon Ekpa has said the hatred of embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, for the ipob family and the Biafran agitations ended his career. Ekpa, said Kyari’s alleged roles and injustice in suppressing the Igbo paved the way for the expose of the fraud he ventured into. He stated these on his Twitter page while reacting to the indictment of the top police officer in $1.1million fraud involving serial fraudster, Abbas Ramon, also known as Hushpuppi, as revealed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States. This led to the suspension of Kyari on Sunday by the Police Service Commission for an investigation. Ekpa wrote, “I was very sure Abba Kyari’s life and career will end in Biafraland, but I didn’t see it coming this way. All the same without our outcry, the criminal government will shield him. Today, his injustice and hate against a Biafran in the name of Vincent has ended his career.” Hushpuppi had told FBI about a deal with Kyari that led to the arrest of another suspected fraudster, Kelly Chibuzo Vincent. The US wants Kyari extradited to answer questions on the allegations. However, Kyari has denied the allegation, saying he only introduced Hushpuppi to a tailor. Sahara reporters
  14. Nigerians on social media have urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the police to immediately extradite Abba Kyari to the United States of America to face prosecution over allegations of engaging in wire fraud. Recall that Abba Kyari was suspended over the weekend by the police commission to allow a thorough investigation in the case involving him with Hushpuppi. The United States Department of Justice had said ongoing investigations showed that Hushpuppi allegedly bribed Kyari to arrest one Kelly Chibuzo Vincent, one of his accomplices in Nigeria. Kyari had since denied the allegations, but admitted helping the fraudster purchase some native clothes in which Hushpuppi allegedly made payments. Nigerians made the call when they took to social media to express their opinions on the matter. Some described his suspension as lenient, calling on the police to dismiss Abba Kyari from the force. Here are some comments gathered across the internet @GbengaSolomon14 “Suspension is not only the needed action but expediting after your internal review and let him go to US, visa-free to defend himself. Nothing more nothing less.Police are you Afraid he might mention others?At least redeem the image of the country!! @NatashaAnyaorah “Which suspension, why am I hearing suspension ? By now it should be sacked and detained . As if you people don’t know that he is corrupt. This government should stop being biased , no one fought for hushpuppi like this. Why is this governement fighting for a criminal? @Emeka_King “Extradition to US will be better.” @Oluajayii “Suspension is a trick to carry judgement over in Nigeria, I am not freaked by whatever is coming from the operators of Buhari’s administration.” @Magii “Police IG should hand over this Abba Kyari to FBI not only suspension because they can bury the case later, better for him to hand over the guy to FBI.” @C_Cdon “He joins the list of suspended 97% that never gets prosecuted( Magu,Hadiza) this nepotism sha.” @Mbakarajunior “Extradite the super fraud NOW.” @ExclusivekingFC “For admitting to receive money from hushpuppy he should be stripped off his position and benefit from the police force. It is to change the narrative of our failed system.” @Bornoffire “All these James Bond approach Ieper the more you look the less you see isn’t going to work this time the @FBI are smarter. He need to go to the US and defend himself.” @Chrissolar “Let him go to US everyone is desiring to go and clear himself up.” @Izzychinedum “Waste of time. There’s nothing like internal probes, just extradite the guy.” @JamilMbai “After calling me with all sort of names, abuses and hatred regarding my position on Abba Kyari, I am glad to hear of the suspension of the Criminal Abba Kyari.”
  15. The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has issued a warning to United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation that nothing must happen to Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari. AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima criticised the US court that ordered the arrest of Kyari following his alleged involvement in Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi fraud case. Shettima described the US court order for DCP Kyari’s arrest and extradition as “the attempted intimidation of a police officer right inside his independent fatherland”. The group stated this in a statement, adding that the move by FBI is “totally unacceptable, a slap on the sensibility of our compatriots and a ridicule on one of our finest crack detectives.” The United States Department of Justice had said ongoing investigations showed that Hushpuppi allegedly bribed Kyari to arrest one Kelly Chibuzo Vincent, one of his accomplices in Nigeria. According to a court document released by the United States Department of Justice on Wednesday, titled: ‘Six Indicted in International Scheme to Defraud Qatari School Founder and then Launder over $1 Million in Illicit Proceeds’, Kyari was said to have been bribed to arrest one Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, 40, in Nigeria, who created bogus documents and arranged for the creation of a fake bank website and phone banking line to support the defrauding of a business person trying to provide $1.1m for the funding of a school in Qatar. Allegation which Kyari has denied, stating that he did not demand any money from Hushpuppi, only introduced the accused to a cloth seller whom Hushpuppi paid about N300,000. The ‘super cop’ said he never demanded for a dime from Hushpuppi, admitting his focus was to save people’s lives that were purported to have been threatened. AYCF stressed that there was no justification for “singling out one of Nigeria’s most effective and efficient police officers for castigation”, while urging “all Nigerians who are truly patriotic to stand behind a man who has made an unrivalled mark on the sands of time by diligently serving his fatherland.” Shettima called on relevant stakeholders in the country, especially civil society organizations to “rally round this officer who risked his life in multiple operations across Nigeria, a fact proved many times through BBC news coverage of such operations. “While we are conscious of our sovereignty as a nation, we demand justice for a man with unrivalled records of detective capabilities in the recent history of Nigeria.”
  16. A United States court has issued a warrant of arrest for highly decorated Nigerian policeman, Abba Kyari, concerning receiving a bribe from an Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi. Hushpuppi and five gang members were arrested for allegedly being involved in fraud and laundering money meant to finance a school for children in Qatar. Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi. The affidavit accused Kyari of conspiring and arranging for Vincent to be arrested and jailed at Abbas’ behest, and then sent Abbas photographs of Vincent after his arrest. Kyari was also accused of allegedly sending Abbas bank account details to deposit payment for Vincent’s arrest and imprisonment.
  17. Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has suggested to Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari to go to the United States of America and defend himself from the bribery accusation made against him by the notorious fraudster, Hushpuppi. HURiWA advised the decorated police officer to hasten to United States Court and file a counter affidavit to the accusation of bribery currently hanging on his neck. “The United States of America is an organised Constitutional democracy where the Rule of Law is supreme. So if a crime suspect makes an affidavit accusation under Oath against you, it doesn’t need to be disclaimed in the local media here,” HURIWA informs. HURIWA said the best thing for the police officer to do at this point, and before the Federal Bureau of Investigation hunts him down with the INTERPOL, is to board the next available flights to Washington DC or New York as someone with a clear conscience, and defend himself in the court. HURIWA said Kyari should be able to present an affidavit evidence in the court to counter what he thinks is a tissue of falsehood and tell Nigerians “the rooster-and-bull story of how you, a very senior police officer acted as the agent of a local tailor is irrelevant and of no moment “. The human rights organisation said the corporate image of the Nigeria Police Force and the nation would be irreparably damaged should the Inspector General of Police, IGP, not facilitate immediate travel of Abba Kyari to the USA. The group said the IGP must compel Abba Kyari, who he trusts so much, to clear his name of the allegations instead of just letting him employ the pages of news media to try to exculpate or exonerate himself from an allegation that is lawfully filed before a United States Court. “This allegation is heavy and it has been filed in the Court of law and not in the court of public opinion,” the group maintained. The group also pointed out that it was shameful that a serving commissioner of Police publicly admitted to having acted as a go-between a local tailor and the then Dubai based fraud kingpin. “Is there no longer a code of conduct between the police and members of the public especially with regards to the kind of relationship that should exist between such a top officer with someone that even before he was arrested by the Federal Bureau of investigation was already a person of interest because clearly, he had no credible means of such flamboyant lifestyle that became of global notoriety? HURIWA quoting a media report said a warrant of arrest has allegedly been issued for Nigeria’s police commissioner Abba Kyari, Peoples Gazette can report based on court documents.
