Usman Kyari, younger brother of the embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari has allegedly deleted photos of some exotic cars on his Instagram page.
This comes in the wake of the bribery allegation involving his older sibling and the disgraced Instagram celebrity fraudster, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi.
Usman Kyari, whose Instagram page @usmankyari_ boasts of 2,052 followers currently has zero posts with suggestions that all his previous posts on the page have been wiped off.
Attention was drawn to Usman’s social media posts after the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) named his super cop brother in a $1.1m Internet fraud perpetrated by Hushpuppi and five other associates.
According to the Nation, Usman posed with a luxury Toyota SUV as well as Mercedes Benz SUVs in some of the photos deleted.
He has since put up fresh posts on his Instastory in defence of his brother over the bribery allegations levelled against him, citing the position of Femi Fani-Kayode, ex-minister of aviation.
Abba was indicted amidst the trial of Hushpuppi by the United States Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California in a statement released on Wednesday titled, ‘Six Indicted in International Scheme to Defraud Qatari School Founder and then Launder over $1 Million in Illicit Proceeds’.
The famed cop was said to have conspired with the self-styled social media celebrity to arrest and jail an estranged ‘co-conspirator,’ Chibuzo Vincent.
Reacting in a statement on Thursday via his verified Facebook page, Abba stated that he did not demand any money from Hushpuppi and Vincent was arrest following a distress call from Abbas.
Abba also denied jailing Vincent, adding that the co-conspirator was released on bail after discovering that there was no life threat from the suspect.
The inspector-general of police, Usman Baba, has ordered a probe into the request for his extradition.
