IGP Queries Abba Kyari, As Malami Considers Extradition Request » Naijaloaded


The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, has queried the erstwhile commander of the IGP Intelligence Response Team (IRT), Abba Kyari, over the infractions noticed in his communication with Ramon Abbas, popularly called Hushpuppi, who is suspected of internet fraud.

The office of the Attorney-General of the Federation is also looking into the request of extraditing the famed super cop to the United States of America.

It was learnt that the query was issued based on the findings by the Special Investigation Panel (SIP), which investigated the alleged indictment of Kyari by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Kyari was indicted by a US court as a conspirator in a $1.1 million fraudulent deal against a Qatari businessman by Hushpuppi.

The Police Service Commission (PSC) suspended him from office as a deputy commissioner of police and head of the IRT based on the recommendation of the IGP.

It was learnt that the DIG Joseph Egbunike-led panel, which submitted its report in August, established that there was communication between Kyari and Hushpuppi.

“The IGP has issued a query to Abba Kyari based on the findings of the panel. The panel discovered that there was communication between Kyari and Hushpuppi, as well as infractions on the part of the cop, which is against the procedure of engagement of the police,” a top security source informed Daily Trust on Sunday.

He, however, said the panel didn’t recommend the extradition of Kyari as it couldn’t be established that the decorated police officer committed any crime in the US.

“There is no proof that he committed any crime on the soil of the US to warrant his extradition. He will be sanctioned by the appropriate authorities here. However, it is for the AGF to advise if there is a ground to extradite him to the US, which is very unlikely,” he added.

President Muhammadu Buhari will determine the fate of embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, over his link with suspected fraudster, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, according to the Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Dingyadi.

Dingyadi vowed that the Nigerian government will ensure that due diligence is done due to international involvement in the matter.

However, it is Buhari who would decide the extradition of Kyari.

The minister said the committee constituted to probe the former DCP has concluded its works and its findings submitted to the Inspector General of Police.

According to Dingyadi:

“The issue of Kyari has become a public domain and I think by now everybody has heard that the police in their very wisdom, in their usual way of becoming transparent and fair to all have set up a committee to investigate all these allegations.

“We have also reported that the committee has submitted the report to the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

“We have also submitted this report and recommendations to the Attorney-General of the Federation for a legal opinion, thereafter, we will take it to Mr President for final consideration.

“So, you can see that even though this matter is a local matter here, it has some international connotations.”

Hushpuppi had implicated Kyari in the $1.1million internet fraud deal.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, had accused Hushuppi of bribing Kyari to jail an errant member of his gang.

However, Kyari denied the allegation, stressing that he never received any bribe from Hushpuppi.
