Police Chief Abba Kyari has finally broken silence on the alleged Hushpuppi bribery scandal. The internet fraudster who recently pleaded guilty in the United States narrated how he bribed Nigeria’s celebrated Deputy Commissioner of Police.
Officials said in court filings that Mr. Abbas disclosed during interrogation that he paid bribes to Mr. Kyari, a deputy police commissioner, to have one of his rivals arrested and jailed in Nigeria following a dispute over a $1.1 million dupe of a Qatari businessperson. Mr Abbas asked Mr Kyari to arrest and jail a fellow fraudster Kelly Chibuzor Vincent after both were locked in a dispute presumably over how to share the $1.1 million loot received from the Qatari businessperson.
Mr Abbas said Mr Kyari sent pictures of Mr Vincent in jail and subsequently sent his bank account number to Mr Abbas to which a wire transfer should be made having done a good job as sent by Mr Abbas.
The police chief in a Facebook post has come out to deny the allegations sharing his own part of the story. He revealed that Hushpuppi reached out to the police claiming that someone was after his family life in Nigeria and also sent a number pleading to the police to reach the person before they attack his family. Abba explained that after a thorough investigation it was discovered that there was no threat to life only a business disagreement so he released the suspect to go.
He said Hushpuppi later reached out to him after seeing him in a native attire on social media and asked that the same be made for him. So he connected him to the tailor and a sum of N300K was paid to the tailor who eventually brought 5 natives and 5 caps to his office where Hushpuppi had it picked up. He noted that he has served the police for 2 decades and his hands are clean for all to see with records of all his actions.
