The Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba has ordered a full investigation into the allegations of crime against Deputy Commisioner of Police, Abba Kyari.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), had alleged that the senior police officer (who is the most decorated officer in the history of the Nigerian Police) was in the payroll of embattled international cybercriminal, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas aka Ray Hushpuppi.
His alleged involvement with Hushpuppi makes him liable to crimes that cost businesses and Individuals millions of dollars. This could mean serious jail time for the ‘super cop’.
In view of the latest development, the IGP has ordered a full-scale investigation into the matter to determine the truth.
His directive was contained in a statement by the Nigeria Police Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba
“ALLEGED INDICTMENT OF DCP ABBA KYARI: INSPECTOR-GENERAL OF POLICE ORDERS A REVIEW OF THE INFORMATION
