Inspector-general of police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered the internal review of the allegation levelled against Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari, over his alleged involvement in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, who has pleaded guilty to money laundering in a United States (US) court.
A US court yesterday issued a warrant of arrest for super detective Abba Kyari.
In a court document obtained by Peoples Gazette, Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to track down Kyari and produce him in the US for his alleged role in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Hushpuppi and his co-conspirators.
But in a statement issued yesterday by police spokesman, Frank Mba, he said:
Sequel to the receipt of allegation and indictment processes from the FBI against one of the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), DCP Abba Kyari, 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.
Hushpuppi, 37, is known for posting photos of his lavish lifestyle on Instagram, where he has 2.5m followers.
In the meantime, Nigerians, many of whom have lost their trust in the Nigerian Police Force, have called for the dismissal of Kyari from the Force and that he should be made an example to other corrupt police officer.
