An arrest warrant was issued for the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, who has been linked to fraud with Nigerian internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi.
Court documents disclosed that Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to arrest Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud.
