The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is set to set up a panel to probe a deputy commissioner of police, Abba Kyari, over his alleged relationship with Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Husphuppi.
Recall that Hushpuppi was arrested in the UAE in June 2020 alongside 11 of his associates over allegations bordering on hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud, and identity theft.
He had earlier pleaded guilty to the money laundering charges against him, putting him at the risk of 20 years imprisonment.
In a recent court document, the social media celebrity had alleged that he bribed Kyari to arrest a co-fraudster.
The crack investigator, however, dismissed Hushpuppi’s claim, saying he did not receive any money from the socialite as alleged.
The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has already secured a court order for Kyari’s arrest following his indictment in the confessional statements made by the alleged fraudster.
But a senior officer who spoke with TheCable said the police hierarchy would first take an “in-house action” before any extradition process can be discussed.
“The police headquarters will set up a high-powered panel to probe the allegations against him before we decide on what to do next,” he said.
