Nigeria’s ‘super cop’, Abba Kyari who is battling an alleged involvement in a multimillion-dollar scam, has updated his verified Facebook page with a third-party post that questions the veracity of a viral US court’s document indicting him.
A US’ Court had issued a warrant of arrest for Kyari for allegedly collaborating with serial internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, known as Hushpuppi, in a multi-million naira fraud.
Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California 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.
SaharaReporters earlier reported that officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation have met with the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba to demand the arrest and extradition of Kyari to the United States.
According to a top source, four FBI agents met with the IGP on Thursday asking that Nigeria’s celebrated cop, Kyari be taken to the United States for interrogation.
Abbas was arrested in Dubai last June and he pleaded guilty to fraud in the U.S. this week.
In his confession, he indicted Kyari. Also, an investigation by the FBI established the contact Kyari had with Hushpuppi hence the arrest warrant.
Kyari, who has consistently denied his involvement in Hushpuppi’s scandal, shared a Facebook post from a former minister, Femi Fani-Kayode rubbishing the entire American court’s allegations against Kyari.
The post reads: “A super cop that has risked his life protecting us from kidnappers, murderers & terrorists all these years& that has arrested more criminals than any other is accused of taking bribes from a yahoo boy & scammer all the way from America & we are expected to believe it? Not me!
“Abba is one of the bravest, brightest and best cops in Nigeria and I will not believe these crazy allegations levelled against him or condemn him unless I see any evidence to the contrary.
“He has proved himself over and over again when it comes to catching criminals and I do not believe that he is one himself. If he were he would not have such an excellent record in combating crime.
“Nigerians seem to take delight in believing and assuming the worse about their best. That is part of our problem: we love and celebrate the evil but we despise, hate and seek to pull down the righteous and good.
“As far as I am concerned there are as many crooked, bent & killer cops all over the world as there are good ones & America has its fair share of both. The only people that ought to take pleasure in reading this crap about Abba are the kidnappers and terrorists in our country.
“Allegations are a dime a dozen and an indictment does not amount to a conviction: show me the evidence or keep your mouth shut forever.
“I urge Abba to continue the good work he has been doing and not allow himself to be distracted by his numerous detractors.
“This is a deep conspiracy to destroy his career and it will not work.”
