Abba Kyari and Ramon Abas aka Hushpuppi

Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police in Nigeria, has denied collecting money from Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, to arrest and jail an estranged ‘co-conspirator,’ Chibuzo Vincent.

He also explained that Hushpuppi once saw some of his [Kyari’s] native clothes and caps on his [Kyari’s] page, expressed a liking for them and was connected to the person selling the clothes.

“He sent about N300k directly to the person’s account,” Abba narrated.

The Police officer said this on Thursday [today] via his verified Facebook page in reaction to an allegation levelled against him by the Attorney’s Office, Central District of California.

The court said Hushpuppi, who pleaded guilty to various charges, including , wire fraud, and felony, among others, used Kyari, a leader of the Inspector-General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team, to jail Vincent.

The allegation was made against Kyari in a statement released on Wednesday by the American court titled, Six Indicted in International Scheme to Defraud Qatari School Founder and then Launder over $1 Million in Illicit Proceeds.

Kyari’s Facebook reads, “Friends: Abbas who we later came to know as Hushpuppi called our office about two years ago that somebody in Nigeria seriously threatened to kill his family here in Nigeria and he sent the person’s phone number and pleaded we take action before the person attacks his family.

“We traced and arrested the suspect and after investigations, we discovered there wasn’t an actual threat to anyone’s life and they are long-time friends who have money issues between them hence we released the suspect on bail to go and he was not taken to any jail.

“Nobody demanded a kobo from Abbas Hushpuppi. Our focus was to save people’s lives that were purported to have been threatened.

“Later, he saw some of my Native Clothes and Caps on my page and he said he likes them and he was connected to the person selling the clothes and he sent about N300k directly to the person’s account. The Native Clothes and Caps (five sets) were brought to our office and He sent somebody to Collect them in our office.

“For those who are celebrating that this is an indictment on and mentioning some fictitious Big Money, They will be disappointed once again as our hands are clean and our record of Service for two decades is open for everybody to see.

“They will continue seeing serving our fatherland and we will continue responding to all distress Calls from all Nigerians provided they are life-threatening.

“For Good Nigerians who appreciate our Service please don’t worry as our hands are clean and they should please not respond to those celebrating and creating many false Narratives without any Evidence. We are used to such types of people and false newsmakers and distributors.

“Thank you all and GOD bless Nigeria.” – THE PUNCH
