A new revelation has emerged in the bribery allegation levelled against Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari in a case involving internet fraudster, Abass Ramon, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has alleged that the super cop was paid ₦8m or $20,600 by Hushpuppi to arrest Chibuzo Kelly Vincent.
A document issued by the United States District Court for the Central District of California and dated February 12, 2021, alleged that Hushpuppi contracted the services of Kyari after Chibuzo allegedly threatened to expose an alleged $1.1m fraud committed against a Qatari businessman.
“Kyari provided the account information for a bank account at a Nigerian bank, Zenith Bank, in the name of a person other than Kyari himself,” Page 59, item 145 of the document stated.
FBI Special Agent, Andrew John Innocenti, made the allegation in the ‘Criminal Complaint By Telephone Or Other Reliable Electronic Means’ filed before the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
