More Troubles for Kyari As DCP Disu Takes His Position
By Lateef Adegite
In spite of the fact that Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, and Head of the Force Intelligence Response Team, IRT, described as’’ a Super Cop’’, in security agencies circles, had said that nobody demanded any money from Ramon Olorunwa Abass, popular, Hushpuppi, an International fraudster, to facilitate the arrest and detention of Chibuzor Kelly Vincent, his former close friend and cybercrime ally, the North American county of the United States, US, Federal Bureau of Investigations, FBI, appears to faulted him.
A document that was said to have been issued by the US District Court for the Central District Court of California, on February 12, 21, alleged that Hushpuppi, had engaged the services of the DCP. Kyari, for the sum of $20,600 or N8 million, to arrest Vincent for threatening to expose an alleged $1.1 million fraud committed against a Qatari business man.
The FBI, Document , may have shocked many when it gave out an insider information to show that Kyari who has been claiming innocent of not receiving a dine from the International fraudster actually provided the information of the Zenith Bank account in Nigeria, in the name of a, undisclosed person, age 59 other than, Kyari himself, as shown in the item 45, of the document where the money was paid into . Andrew John Innocenti, the US, FBI, agent, who was said to have made the allegation in the Criminal Complaint by Telephone and other Electronic Means filed before the US, District Court for the Central District of California Court.
Giving an insider information of the circumstances that was said to have to have led to the $20,600 payment to Kyari, the document had stated that in January 16, 2020, Hushpuppi, sent a message to the Borno state born senior Police officer on Whasapp, and also placed five calls to another phone number +234 806073388 that was listed as Abba Kyari. The call records showed that the last three of the calls were answered and that one of the calls lasted two minutes.
The Document noted that shortly after the Conversation between the duo, Kyari sent a message to Hushpuppi which was said to have been received, and to reconfirm their plan to pick up Vincent on the agreed date or the next day. In response, the embattled DCP,was sad to have promised to ‘’to take care of the Team also after they had picked up his estranged friend’’. Kyari was said to have answered in the affirmative as published by the Punch Newspapers, of Monday, August 2, 2021, based on the FBI, Document: Yes ooo .
The document had averred that based on the discussion between the duo on phone, the later as described in paragraphs 143 to 145 of the Document had planned ‘’ to pay the Nigerian Police officers who had participated in arresting Vincent, his Co-conspirator for their service.
The US District Court Document, had alleged that this is not the only time that Hushpuppi, has arranged payments for his Team with Kyari. On May 20, 2020, he was said to have sent Kyari receipts for two transactions from accounts at Guarantee Trust Bank, Popular, GTB and Zenith of a person that he knew in the United Arab Emirate, UAE. The person in question was said to have been arrested with him in his Apartment at UAE, by the Dubai police on June 9, 2020- to the accounts of another person in Nigeria.
The amount in the two transaction receipts , the Document shows totalled N8 million, equivalent of $20,600, based on public available exchange rate Information . The FBI, Document, may have given further insight on Hushpuppi and Kyari, in the plot to arrest Vincent that may have nailed the later.
It noted that in‘’attempting to reason with Hushpuppi In January 18, 2020, Vincent who had fallen out with him, had recounted the assistance he had provided in’’ the scheme to vicimise the victim businessperson, including creating the power of Attorney and facilitating creation of telephone Banking number and fake Wells Fargo website’’.
The FBI Document had revealed that on January 20, 2020, , the Nigerian DCP had sent to Hushpuppi, a Biographical , identifying information of Vincent , along with his photograph when he was arrested. This may have gladdened the heart of Hushpuppi, who was said to have confirmed in their Conversation immediately: ‘’that is him, Sir’’. Kyari was said have boasted,‘’We have arrested the guy. He is in my Cell now’’. The embattled DCP, was said to have sent the Vincent Biographical information and photograph to Huspuppi, using two different whatsapp numbers, the second of which , Kyari was said to be his private number.
The FBI Document, revealed that from that moment Hushpuppi got wind that his closest rival, Vincent has been arrested by Kyari’s Team members,, the duo were said to have discussed his arrest and detention through whasapp in Kyari’s private number on a daily basis.
Hushpuppi, may have wanted Kyari to see him as’’ a big boy’’, in the class of Atiku Abubakar, a former Nigerian Vice President and Presidential Candidate of the Opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019, general elections Bukola Saraki, a former governor of Kwara state and one time Nigeria Senate President and Dino Melaye, a Senator of Federal Republic and who have posed in photographs with him and other Celebrities like Davido, aNigerian Musician.
Hushpuppi, may have shown his hatred for Vincent, when he gave a matching order to DCP Kyari to thoroughly give him the beating of his life for daring him but he was said to have laughed over it but Hushpuppi, insits that he must be seriously beaten to teach him a bitter lesson.
He may have suspected something fishy as he was said to have demanded to know the actual offence committed by Vincent that should warrant beating him while in their Custody. He was said to have sent him the details of what he did in an audio to listen and decide on what to do.
Here him: I have a job that should have fetched me $575, 000,lamenting in the audio message that Vincent went ahead to expose i because ‘’I told him to help and take one of the documents to the person that will give the job to me’’. I gave him the details of the job, he said.
His anger may have been informed by the fact that Vincent gave out the information on the job at his back to divert the money. It is not surprising why he told Kyari that he will spend money to send Vincent to jail for a long time. He was said to have repeatedly said it to the hearing of the Nigerian DCP, during their discussion, ‘’Please sir, I want to spend money to send this boy to jail , let him go for a very long time’’.
He was said to have promised Hushpuppi, that he will discuss the matter with his Team members who had arrested him. An elated Hushpuppi, was said to have asked Kyari, how he can send money to them. ‘’I will send their accounts details to you, he was said to have promised. True to his words. six minutes later, according to FBI, Document, he sent the Team members who had arrested Vincent account details in Zenith Bank to him, in the name of a front, other than him to transfer the money. The FBI, Document confirmed that Hushpuppi transfered the money to the Zenith Bank given to him by the suspended DCP Kyari but that was how far it could go.
Usman Alkali Baba, the Inspector General of Police, IGP, may have sent a message To suspended Kyari, to stop dreaming of coming back to the service to Head the IRT, as he was said to have replaced him with DCP Tunji Disu, a former Commander of the Rapid Response Squad in Lagos state. This may have proved to him that he is not indispensable and that all that talks that his records in the last two decades in the service in fighting crime will speak for him will not count when it comes to enforcing disciplinary action in the Force. He is expected to injected fresh hands into the Team to give a bite in order to put behind it the bad experience of the Kyari era which had made the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, a laughing stock in the Internationa l Community because of the pecuniary interest of Kyari, the suspended former Head of the IRT.
