Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic Financial Crime Commission has revealed that it has been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to arrest Deputy Police Commissioner, Abba Kyari over his collaboration with international internet fraudster, Ramon Abass aka “Hushpuppi”
According to a source within the agency who spoke with Sahara Reporters, the FBI contacted the anti-graft agency to arrest Abba Kyari but it responded that the matter is beyond its jurisdiction but within the that of the police.
“FBI has contacted EFCC, asking that we arrest Abba Kyari but we told them that it is a police matter”
Abba Kyari according to the FBI helped Hushpuppi in jailing one of his crime syndicate members after a dispute ensued between them over a $1.1m scam of a Qatari business person.
Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California authorized the FBI to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States for his part in a multi-million dollar fraud.
However, in a Facebook post by the police DCP, he denied his involvement in the crime. He received that he only helped Hushpuppi in getting clothing materials.
The Inspector General Police, Usman Baba Alkali has already ordered an internal investigation into the allegation leveled against him.
