Embattled deputy commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari may be handed over to the FBI after the arrest of two of Hushpuppi’s associates.
Jameela News reports that the deputy commissioner has also been removed as the head of the Intelligence Response Team, IRT, by the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba.
Kyari is currently facing a special panel looking into his indictment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, this impeccable news medium learned.
Jameela News also gathered that the FBI has arrested two other accomplices of Hushpuppi mentioned in the federal Indictment alongside Kyari.
Motunrayo Fashola and Bolatito Agbabiaka have been arrested.
The other outstanding warrants that have not been affected are those of Kyari and Vincent Chibuzo. FBI agents visited Nigeria last week to meet with senior police officers to effect the warrant of arrest on Kyari.
Motunrayo has a child with Hushpuppi and has been living in New York while Agbabiaka lives in New Jersey. Both women were in charge of Wells Fargo and Capital One bank accounts used by the syndicate to defraud a Qatari businessperson.
It can be recalled that Hushpuppi, Vincent Chibuzor, Motunrayo, and Agbabiaka conspired to defraud a Qatari businessman of $1.1 million. The scheme was going on well until Chibuzor contacted the victim and alerted him that Hushpuppi was a fraudster.
This annoyed Hushpuppi who then contacted the deputy commissioner to arrest and detain Chibuzor, who was in Nigeria at the time.
Hushpuppi briefed Kyari on the fraudulent scheme, explaining how Chibuzor wanted to frustrate it. Kyari subsequently arrested Chibuzor and held him in detention for 5 weeks. This enabled Hushpuppi to further defraud the Qatari businessman for $575,000.
Chibuzo was finally released after he developed a terrible illness with skin rashes and appeals from family members.
Hushpuppi remains in custody while Abba Kyari is possibly going to face Extradition.
