Update: $1.1m fraud: U.S court orders arrest of Abba Kyari



The United States District Court for the Central District of California, has issued an arrest warrant for the Deputy Commissioner of Police in Nigeria, Abba Kyari, over his indictment in the fraud case against internet fraudster, Ramon Abass popularly known as Hushpuppi.

The Court ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in the multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Hushpuppi and his fraud syndicate.

An earlier report by Persecondnews, indicated that Hushpuppi allegedly arranged for Kyari to have his co-conspirator, Kelly Chibuzo Vincent, arrested following a conflict over an ongoing $1 million scam they were both running on a Qatari businessman.

Persecondnews gathered from the court documents that the two fraudsters conspired with others to steal over $1million from the Qatari businessperson, by posing as consultants and bankers who could facilitate a loan to finance the construction of a school in Qatar.

Other members of Hushpuppi’s fraud syndicate includes Abdulrahman Juma from Kenya, Yusuf Anifowoshe, Rukayat Fashola, Bolatito Agbabiaka and Kelly Chibuzo Vincent.

However, dispute ensued between Hushpuppi and Vincent when the latter threatened to expose the fraud to their victim.

Kyari, who is also the commander of the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team, was reported to have carried out Hushpuppi’s request and sent him photographs of an imprisoned Vincent, as well as account details for his payment.

Meanwhile, Kyari has since denied the allegations leveled against him, stating that “those celebrating his alleged indictment, will be disappointed because his hands are clean.”
