Pictorial: DCP Abba Kyari and his little-known A-Lister friends

Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Abba Kyari, has many friends, some of whom are relatively unknown A-Listers.

He refers to them as “good brothers” and “sisters.”

Before now, Kyari had always been in the news for his work in crime-busting. The decorated cop is the commander of the Inspector General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team.

However, DCP Kyari is currently being wanted at the Central District of California for charges relating to a $1m scam involving one of his A-Lister friends, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, who has pleaded guilty to some financial crimes and is awaiting trial in the United States.

The affidavit citing Kyari’s involvement with five other persons of interest alleged that the ‘Super Cop’ helped Hushpuppi to detain an associate of his, Vincent Kelly Chibuzo, who wanted to disrupt an ongoing fraud operations against a Qatari businessman.

Though Kyari admitted to arresting Hushpuppi’s associate Chibuzo, he  said that the action was based on a claim by Hushpuppi that Chibuzo was threatening to hurt his family members.

The accusation turned out to be false, Kyari said in Facebook post, noting that Chibuzo was subsequently released.

The FBI, however, insists that Kyari’s arrest of Chibuzo aided Hushpuppi in the conclusion of the financial scam against the Qatari businessman and that the decorated cop sent photographic evidence of Chibuzo in detention, as well as bank account into which Hushpuppi could pay.

Kyari denied the allegations.

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has recommended the “immediate suspension” of DCP Abba Kyari from the Force pending the conclusion of the investigation into the FBI indictment.
