A United States court has issued a warrant for the arrest of one of Nigeria’s Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.
People’s Gazette released a court document today which shows that Otis Wright of the United States District Court in California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to arrest Kyari.
Naija FM earlier reported that the police chief was accused of playing a role in a fraud worth over $1 million.
The fraud was masterminded by popular lavish fraudster Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi and five other Africans.
According to a statement from the court, Hushpuppi used Abba Kyari to arrest a fraudster colleague, Chibuzo Vincent who threatened to expose their scam to the victim.
According to the court documents, Kyari, a high decorated deputy police commissioner arranged to have Vincent arrested in Nigeria to stop him from disclosing details of the crime.
Hushpuppi claimed that he sent Vincent’s photo to Kyari and when the job was done, he wired funds into his account.
The police chief has denied the statement, claiming that he received a call from Abbas who claimed that his life was being threatened.
The police officer confirmed that Vincent was arrested but he was immediately released after investigations showed that he and Ramon Abbas were friends who only had a dispute.
