Nigeria’s famous crime buster and super cop, Abba Kyari, is wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, court document obtained by Peoples Gazette shows.
According to the court documents, Abba Kyari, who was once hosted by a celebrity fraudster, Hushpuppi in Dubai, got over $20,000 in the deal.
Hushpuppi once lived at one of Dubai’s leading 5-Star hotels, Palazzo Versace.
The defendants in the case are Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, aka “Ray Hushpuppi,” aka “Hush,” aka “Malik,” Abdulrahman Imran Juma, aka “Abdul,” aka “Rahman,” Vincent Kelly Chibuzo, aka “Kelly,” Abba Alhaji Kyari, Rukayyat Motunraya Fashola, aka “Morayo,” Bolatito Tawakalitu Agbabiaka, aka “Bolamide”.
Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California had ordered the FBI to arrest Mr Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in the $1,124,426.36 fraud case.
An affidavit sworn by Andrew John Innocenti revealed that Abba Kyari, who got millions of naira in the deal, conspired with Hushpuppi to detain and torture a business partner, Vincent Chibuzo, for the deal to succeed.
“This affidavit is made in support of a criminal complaint against, and arrest warrants for, RAMON OLORUNWA ABBAS, also known as (“aka”) “Ray Hushpuppi,” aka “Hush,” aka “Malik” (“ABBAS”), and the following persons who conspired with ABBAS and each other to fraudulently obtain and launder at least $1,124,426.36 from a victim,” Mr Innocenti’s affidavit read.
“When JUMA and ABBAS learned of CHIBUZO’s interference, ABBAS arranged to have KYARI—a highly decorated Deputy Commissioner of the Nigeria Police Force—arrest CHIBUZO for interfering with the fraud scheme. ABBAS specifically told KYARI that CHIBUZO contacted “the job” behind ABBAS’ back to “divert the job for himself.”
“ABBAS asked KYARI to have the police administer the “serious beating of his life” and arranged with KYARI to pay to keep CHIBUZO imprisoned for at least a month, so that the fraud scheme could be successfully executed, and the money could be obtained.
“After KYARI arrested CHIBUZO, he sent ABBAS photographs of CHIBUZO in custody and later told ABBAS that he would not allow CHIBUZO’s girlfriend to pay money to get CHIBUZO out of custody as he would have done for a “normal arrest.” Following CHIBUZO’s arrest, JUMA and ABBAS convinced the Victim Businessperson to make the payments of $299,983.58 described above.”
