The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, has recommended the immediate suspension of the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, pending the outcome of an internal investigation into his connection with the popular internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas AKA Hushpuppi.
Kyari, who is the head of the IGP Unit was indicted by U.S. authorities as part of the investigation of the serial fraudster. Hushpuppi had pleaded guilty to multi-million dollar fraud charges by the U.S government.
The highly decorated Nigerian officer was fingered among the beneficiaries of proceeds from Hushpuppi’s illegal dealings, a reason a U.S court ordered his arrest and prosecution.
The police spokesperson, Frank Mba, announced the stance of the IGP on Sunday.
