Nigerian PSC Calls For the Dismissal of Celebrated Officer, Abba Kyari
The Police Service Commission (PSC) has called for the immediate dismissal and prosecution of celebrated officer, ASbba Kyari over his involvement in the international online fraud case involving Ramon ‘Hushpuppi’ Abbas.
In his defense, Inspector-General, Alkali Baba Usman had said in his report that Kyari, 46, should be given another chance to redeem himself because he had “won many medals”, “positively projected the image of the NPF” and “performed well above his coursemates”, according to an internal police memo.
The celebrated officer was suspended from office on August 1, 2021, three days after he was indicted by the FBI for conniving with Hushpuppi to defraud a Qatari businessman.
Kyari was accused of collecting cash from Hushpuppi to arrest and detain another member of the syndicate for several weeks in order to aid an ongoing scheme.
His connection to the syndicate was uncovered after Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai and moved to the U.S. to stand trial.
The Nigerian fraudster and Instagram sensation pleaded guilty to multimillion-dollar fraud in August 2021 and has been scheduled for sentencing on July 11.
