United States District Court for the Central District of California, has issued a warrant of arrest has been issued for Nigeria’s Police Commissioner, Abba Kyari.
According to the court papers, Justice Otis Wright ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, to track down, arrest and detain Mr. Kyari and subsequently produce him in the US court to explain his role in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Ramon Abbas, better known as ‘Hushpuppi’.
It would be recalled that Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai in June last year. In a twist of guilt, he pleaded guilty to the fraud allegations in the US this week.
While the FBI noted that Abbas and Kyari have been friends and were both involved in a conspiracy to launder money, Kyari was also indicted of receiving bribes from Hushpuppi to arrest a rival member of the syndicate in Nigeria.
It was also gathered that American prosecutors first sought a court warrant to arrest Mr. Kyari on February 12, 2021, and later on April 29, 2021.
Judge Wright’s permission for the FBI to arrest Mr. Kyari and hold him in US custody was unsealed on July 26.
Meanwhile, CP Kyari in a hurried statement, denied allegations of conspiracy with Hushpuppi, saying he only met him two years ago and did not benefit financially from the fraudster.
