Oyogist has learned that Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari is currently under investigations over his Alleged involvement with Nigerian fraudster, Ramon Abass, better known as Hushpuppi.
Kyari, was named in a US Department of Justice federal grand jury indictment unsealed on Wednesday, June 28, 2021.
Recall Hushpuppi had earlier pleaded guilty to the multi-million-dollar fraud charges filed against him by the United States government.
Kyari’s connection to the celebrity is linked to the indictment of six people in an international scheme to defraud Qatari School founder and then launder over $1 million in illicit proceeds.
Meanwhile, court documents said there was a dispute amongst members of the fraud cartel which made one of the gang members, Kelly Chibuzo Vincent, threaten to expose the others, a move that induced Hushpuppi to reach Abba Kyari to arrange Vincent’s arrest and jail.
The statement reads: “Court documents outline a dispute among members of the conspiracy, which allegedly prompted Vincent to contact the victim and claim that Abbas and Juma were engaged in fraud. After this contact, Abbas allegedly arranged to have Vincent jailed in Nigeria by Abba Alhaji Kyari, 46, of Nigeria.
According to the affidavit, Kyari is a highly decorated deputy commissioner of the Nigeria Police Force who is alleged to have arranged for Vincent to be arrested and jailed at Abbas’ behest, and then sent Abbas photographs of Vincent after his arrest.
Kyari also allegedly sent Abbas bank account details for an account into which Abbas could deposit payment for Vincent’s arrest and imprisonment.”
