EFCC – We’ve been contacted by FBI to arrest Abba Kyari over his connection with internet fraudster Hushpuppi
We’ve been contacted by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to arrest Kyari over his connection with internet fraudster Hushpuppi says Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
A top source in the EFCC who spoke to the reporters however said no arrest can be made by the agency since Kyari is a police officer and that the case was not within the capacity of the EFCC but for the police to handle.
According to the source, “FBI has contacted EFCC, asking that we arrest Abba Kyari but we told them that it is a police matter.
The suspected internet fraudster who was arrested in Dubai in June 2020 allegedly told the FBI that he gave a bribe to Abba Kyari to facilitate the arrest and imprisonment of a member of his online fraud gang identified as Chibuzo Vincent. Kyari has however denied this allegation.
Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police has ordered an internal review of all the allegations levelled against Kyari by Hushpuppi.
