U.S. Court Orders the FBI to Arrest and Detain Abba Kyari Over Hushpuppi $1.1m Fraud Scandal

A United States court has ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to arrest and detain Nigeria’s ‘super cop’, Abba Kyari for his alleged involvement in Hushpuppi’s fraud case.

In case you missed it: Hushpuppi, whose real name is Ramon Abbas, confessed to US authorities in his plea agreement that he bribed Kyari, to have one of his rivals, Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, arrested and jailed in Nigeria following a dispute over a $1.1million dupe of a Qatari businessperson. Vincent had contacted the victim and informed them that they were being scammed by a syndicate involving him and Abbas. And this led to a quarrel, prompting Hushpuppi to contact Kyari to arrest and jail Vincent. Once Hushpuppi had received photos of Vincent in jail, Kyari sent him his bank account number.

Now, People Gazette is reporting that Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California has  ordered the FBI to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud.

The report continued:

Mr Abbas was arrested in Dubai last June and he pleaded guilty to fraud in the U.S. this week. The FBI said Messrs Abbas and Kyari have been friends and were both involved in a conspiracy to launder money.

Mr Kyari was also indicted of receiving bribes from Mr Abbas to arrest a member of the syndicate in Nigeria.

American prosecutors first sought a court warrant to arrest Mr Kyari on February 12, 2021, according to court documents seen by The Gazette. Another warrant was requested on April 29, 2021.

Judge Wright’s permission for the FBI to arrest Mr Kyari and hold him in U.S. custody was unsealed on July 26.

Abba Kyari has reportedly denied the allegations, claiming he only met Hushpuppi two years ago and did not benefit financially from the fraudster.
