U.S. Court Orders FBI To Arrest, Detain Abba Kyari Over Hushpuppi Multimillion-Dollar Fraud


U.S. Court orders FBI to arrest, detain Abba Kyari over Hushpuppi multimillion-dollar fraud..

A warrant of arrest has been issued for Nigeria’s police commissioner Abba Kyari, Peoples Gazette can report based on court documents.

Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to track down Mr Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Ramon ‘Hushpuppi’ Abbas, a notorious Nigerian fraudster.

Mr Abbas was arrested in Dubai last June and he pleaded guilty to fraud in the U.S. this week. The FBI said Mr Abbas and Kyari have been friends and were both involved in a conspiracy to launder money.

Mr Kyari was also indicted of receiving bribes from Mr Abbas to arrest a member of the syndicate in Nigeria.

American prosecutors first sought a court warrant to arrest Mr Kyari on February 12, 2021, according to court documents seen by The Gazette. Another warrant was requested on April 29, 2021.

Judge Wright’s permission for the FBI to arrest Mr Kyari and hold him in U.S. custody was unsealed on July 26.

Mr Kyari in a hurried statement denied allegations of conspiracy with Hushpuppi, saying he only met him two years ago and did not benefit financially from the fraudster.

It was not immediately clear whether or not an extradition request has been filed for Mr Kyari. Attorney-General Abubakar Malami did not immediately return a request seeking comments from The Gazette.

  1. This Abba Kyari needs to go. In any normal country, he would be on suspension now pending investigations, which might probably lead to dismissal or indictment in court if found guilty. He seems to be hobnobbing with some questionable characters. The prompt response he gave to hushpuppie, would he give that to everyone?? Does every citizen have his personal number?? He is an embarrassment to the police force and the Government. It took the American Government to expose this. If the investigations were done here, this revelation would have been buried. Corruption will never cease in Nigeria, as long as people love money and worships anyone that has it.

  2. He is fucked. Let him bring along large tube of lube coming into US jail because his butthole will be wrecked. Nothing other prisoners hate more than a dirty cop!
