IGP submits report on indictment in Hushpuppi’s fraud case

The Inspector-General Usman Baba has finally submitted disciplinary recommendations on Abba Kyari to the Police Service Commission (PSC).

It can be recalled that the supercop has been on suspension since July 31, following his indictment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in relating to the Huspuppi fraud case.

Hushpuppi and five gang members were arrested for allegedly being involved in fraud and laundering money meant to finance a school for children in Qatar.

Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi.

The affidavit accused Kyari of conspiring and arranging for Vincent to be arrested and jailed at Abbas’ behest, and then sent Abbas photographs of Vincent after his arrest.

Kyari had denied any wrongdoing in a statement on Facebook, the senior police officer narrated that Abbas called him two years ago to complain about a person threatening to kill his family.

He was subsequently suspended from the police force after a recommendation by the IGP, and he is now facing a panel as regards the FBI report.

According to The Nation, the report by a probe panel constituted to investigate his role in the alleged online fraud was submitted to the PSC months after the IGP received it.

A member of the PSC, Braimoh Adogame Austin confirmed that the commission has received the report and will start deliberations on the issue this week.

Recommendations of the panel will inform the commission’s decision and also determine Kyari’s future in the force.

Austin said;

 “The IGP has submitted Abba Kyari’s report to the PSC and deliberations on the matter will commence this week. I can’t tell you when it was submitted but it’s now with the commission.”
