Arrest Kyari Over Hushpuppi’s Bribery Allegations – U. S Court To FBI




Whatsapp News

Abuja – A States’ Court has urged the FBI to arrest Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, over his role in serial internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, more commonly Hushpuppi’s multi-million naira probe.

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.

Abbas was arrested in Dubai last June and he pleaded guilty to in the U.S. this week.

The FBI said Abbas and Kyari have been friends and were both involved in a

American prosecutors first sought a court warrant to arrest Kyari on February 12, 2021, according to court documents seen by People’ Gazette.

Another warrant was requested on April 29, 2021.

Wright’ permission for the FBI to arrest Mr Kyari and hold him in U.S. custody was unsealed on July 26.

SaharaReporters had earlier reported that Hushpuppi narrated how he bribed Kyari to have one of his rivals arrested and jailed in following a dispute over a $1.1million dupe of a Qatari businessperson.

Abbas had asked Kyari to arrest and jail a fellow fraudster Kelly Chibuzor Vincent after both were locked in a dispute presumably over how to share the $1.1million loot received from the Qatari businessperson.

Abbas had pleaded guilty to a multi-million earlier this month and faces up to 20 years in jail.

He will be sentenced in the coming weeks and will forfeit some of his assets and his rights to appeal while also paying restitution to victims of his years-long fraud.

Kyari in a statement on Facebook has, however, dismissed the allegations of bribe.
