Mother Of All Fraud: United States Court Finds Abba Kyari Culpable, Orders FBI To Arrest Him Over Hushpuppi’s Fraud Investigations


The FBI says Abbas and Kyari were both involved in a money laundering conspiracy

A United States’ Court has issued a warrant of arrest for Nigeria’s Super Cop, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, over his role in aiding a serial internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas notoriously known as Hushpuppi in a multi-million dollar fraud probe.

According reports, Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California has 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.

American prosecutors first sought a court warrant to arrest Kyari on February 12, 2021, according to court documents seen by People’s 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.

Sahara Reporters had earlier reported that Hushpuppi revealed how he bribed Kyari to have one of his rivals arrested and jailed in Nigeria following a dispute over a $1.1million dupe of a Qatari businessperson.

Abbas had asked Kyari to arrest and jail a fellow fraudster Kelly Chibuzor Vincent after both were locked in a dispute presumably over how to share the $1.1million loot received from the Qatari businessperson.

Abbas had pleaded guilty to a multi-million fraud earlier this month and faces up to 20 years in jail.

He will be sentenced in the coming weeks and will forfeit some of his assets and his rights to appeal while also paying restitution to victims of his years-long fraud.

Kyari in a statement on Facebook has, however, dismissed the allegations of bribe.
