According to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has contacted it regarding the arrest of DCP Abba Kyari for his connections with a serial internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas aka Hushpuppi.

However, a top source in the EFCC who spoke with SaharaReporters said no arrest can be made since Kyari is a police officer and the case is not within the EFCC’s remit. 

“FBI contacted EFCC asking that Abba Kyari be arrested, but we told them that it was a police matter,” the source stated. 

Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police has ordered an internal review of all the allegations Hushpuppi made against Kyari.

A suspected internet fraudster who was arrested in Dubai in June 2020 allegedly told the FBI that he bribed Kyari to facilitate the arrest and imprisonment of a member of his online fraud gang named Chibuzo Vincent. Kyari, however, has denied these allegations.
