Hushpuppi: Probe Panel Submits Report On Kyari

1 min read

THE Special Investigation Panel set up to probe former Deputy Police Commissioner, Abba Kyari, has submitted its report to the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba.

The panel was set up two weeks ago to probe Kyari who is alleged to be involved in a $1.1 million Internet fraud linked to Instagram influencer, Abbas Ramon, also known as Hushpuppi and four others.

Deputy Inspector -General of Police in charge of the Force Criminal Investigations Department, Joseph Egbunike, was appointed to head the four-man panel.

It was gathered that the panel submitted its findings to the IG on Monday.

The FBI in its report had claimed that Kyari detained one Kelly Chibuzo at the behest of Hushpuppi for one month to enable the latter and his co-conspirators to fleece their Qatari victim of over $1m.

This development led to the IG, on August 1, recommending the suspension of the DCP to the Police Service Commission, with effect from July 31, and also set up a panel to investigate the allegations against him.

Kyari was subsequently replaced by DCP Tunji Disu.
