Popular policeman, Abba Kyari has reacted to being accused by US government of allegedly receiving bribe from Nigerian Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi to arrest and jail a member of his online fraud gang identified as Chibuzo Vincent.
Nigeriana had reported that the new indictment which Hushpuppi and 5 others face, involved money meant to finance the construction of a school for children in Qatar.
Abba Kyari was accused of initiating the arrest after a dispute arose from the $1.1m fraudulent scheme the Instagram celebrity and members of his gang were involved in. The affidavit described Kyari as 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 was also accused of allegedly sending Abbas bank account details to deposit payment for Vincent’s arrest and imprisonment.
The policeman who has now reacted to the allegation, disclosed that the arrest was effected two years ago. According to him, Hushpuppi had filed a complaint alleging that somebody in Nigeria seriously threatened to kill his family here in Nigeria and subsequently sent the person’s phone number and pleaded that the police takes action before his family is harmed.
Kyari said investigations revealed there wasn’t an actual threat to anyone’s life, and was just a case centering on money. He added that Vincent was released on bail and not taken to any jail.
The policeman also claimed that the money Hushpuppi sent was for a native cloth he saw on his page and liked. He reiterated that his hands are clean, and urged those celebrating to stop creating narratives with false evidence.
The statement read;
Abbas who we later came to know as Hushpuppi called our office about 2years 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 for 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 social media 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 (5 sets) were brought to our office and He sent somebody to Collect them in our office.
Nobody demanded any money from Abbas Hushpuppi and nobody collected any money from him. We responded to a distress call he made on threat to his family and released the Suspect when we discovered there was no life threat from the Suspect. This is the true story. Vincent is alive, he can be contacted.
For those who are celebrating that this is an indictment on us and mentioning some fictitious Big Money, They will be disappointed once again as our hands are clean and our record of Service for 2 decades is open for everybody to See. They will continue seeing us serving our father land 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.
