More facts have emerged in the fraud trial involving internet fraudster, Hushpuppi and his relationship with a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation in a document submitted to the court disclosed that the police boss abandoned his duties in Nigeria sometime in 2019 and flew to Dubai to “enjoy a good time” with Hushpuppi, who lived at Palazzo Versace in the Emirati commercial capital.
Naija News had earlier reported that the Nigerian internet fraudster pleaded guilty after his legal representatives negotiated a plea deal with prosecutors in Central California.
He faces up to 20 years in jail at sentencing in the coming weeks.
The Nigerian will also forfeit some of his gains over the years and pay restitution to some of his victims, court filings said.
Additional documents seen by Peoples Gazette showed that Kyari in 2019 travelled to Dubai to enjoy a good time with Hushpuppi.
Abbas “sent a car and driver to drive” Kyari around “during that trip,” FBI unsealed indictment said.
Kyari during the trip bragged to Abbas about some of his so-called crime-busting activities in Nigeria, to which Abbas responded by playing allegiance to the police chief.
“Am really happy to be your boy,” Hushpuppi told Kyari in an intercepted message. “I promise to be a good boy to you sir.”
Recall that Hushpuppi narrated how he bribed Kyari
