IGP orders review of allegations against Abba Kyari

THE Inspector General of Police, Mr Usman Alkali Baba, on Thursday, ordered an “internal review” of the allegations against one of its Deputy Commissioner Police, DCP Abba Kyari, over his alleged dealings with an alleged fraudster, Ramon Abass, popularly known as Hushpuppi.

The social media was awash on Thursday following a US Justice Department report which indicted Abba Kyari and accused him of having dealings with Hushpuppi, and a US court was also said to have ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to look into the case.

However, apparently following the reactions generated over the matter, the IG on Thursday night ordered what the police called “internal review” of the allegations against DCP Abba Kyari.

Force Public Relations Officer Frank Mba, in a statement, said this became necessary as the Nigeria Police Force reaffirms its commitment to the pursuit of justice and the strengthening of its professional relationship with the FBI and other international partners.

According to the statement: “Sequel to the receipt of allegations and indictment processes from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) against one of the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force, DCP Abba Kyari, the Inspector General of Police IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered an internal review of the allegations.

“The Nigeria Police Force reaffirms its commitment to the pursuit of justice and the strengthening of its professional relationship with the FBI and other international partners.

Further developments on this case will be communicated to members of the public accordingly.”
