More details have been fished out on the bribery allegation the Federal Bureau of Investigation FBI leveled against the suspended Nigerian super cop, Abba Kyari, as he allegedly received the whooping sum of paid N8m ($20,600) from Abass Ramon, popularly known as Hushpuppi to detain his fellow conspirator, Chibuzo Kelly Vincent.
Recall that the FBI had, in the previous week, linked Abba Kyari in a $1.1m fraud committed against a Qatari businessman with Hushpuppi, who is currently facing multiple charges bordering on money laundering and fraud.A document issued by the United States District Court for the Central District of California and dated February 12, 2021, alleged that Hushpuppi contracted Abba Kyari’s services of Abba Kyari after Chibuzo, who provided a cloned website for the fraud, allegedly threatened to expose them. Giving details the document reads in part, “Kyari provided the account information for a bank account at a Nigerian bank, in the name of a person other than Kyari himself.”
“On January 16, 2020, Abbas sent a message to Kyari on WhatsApp, and then placed five calls to another phone number that was listed as ‘Abba Kyari.’ Call records show that the last three of the calls were answered and that one of the calls lasted more than two minutes. Shortly after that, Abbas received a message from Kyari, confirming ‘We would pick him today or tomorrow’”, it read on.“Abbas wrote, ‘I will take care of the team also after they pick him up.’ Kyari confirmed ‘Yes ooo.’ This was not the only time that Abbas arranged payments with Kyari. On May 20, 2020, Abbas sent Kyari transaction receipts for two transactions from accounts at Nigerian banks (GTBank and Zenith Bank) of a person Abbas knew in the U.A.E.— a person also arrested with Abbas in Abbas’ apartment in the U.A.E. by Dubai Police on June 9, 2020 — to the Nigerian bank accounts of another person in Nigeria.”
“The amounts on the transaction receipts totaled 8 million Nigerian Naira, which was approximately $20,600 based on publicly available exchange rate information,” the document added.TRENDING VIDEO OF THE DAY: My Shoutout Goes To My Family Photos Credit: Getty
