Abba Kyari: Inspector General of Police speaks on FBI indictment



The Inspector General of Police, Alkali Baba has ordered an “internal review” of the indictment of DCP Abba Kyari, by the FBI of the United States..

The indictment was a fallout of the cybercrime charge levelled against Nigeria’s Instagram Influencer, Ray Hushpuppi, real name Ramon Olorunwa

Hushpuppi and five other Nigerians and a Kenya were alleged to have defrauded a Qatari businessman of about $1.1 million between December 2019 and early 2020.

Kyari got entangled in the case by arresting a colleague of Hushpuppi, Vincent, at Hushpuppi’s request.

Hushpuppi claimed he bribed Kyari for the arrest.

Kyari has thus been named in the court papers and a judge in California has ordered the FBI to arrest him.

In a short statement, IGP Baba said he had received the FBI papers and has ordered an internal review.

Read the statement by Police spokesman, CP Fran Mba:

“Sequel to the receipt of allegation and indictment processes from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) against one of the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force, DCP Abba Kyari, the Inspector General of Police IGP Usman Alkali Baba has ordered an internal review of the allegations.

“The Nigeria Police Force reaffirms its commitment to the pursuit of justice and the strengthening of its professional relationship with the FBI and other international partners.

“Further developments on this case will be communicated to members of the public accordingly.”
