Officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or FBI, are said to have met with Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, to discuss DCP Abba Kyari’s extradition for his role in a fraud plot with disgraced fraudster Ramon Olorunwa Abass a.k.a Hushpuppi.
On Thursday, Kyari, one of Nigeria’s most decorated officers, made headlines after a US district court in California issued an arrest warrant for him in connection with Hushpuppi’s fraudulent activities. He allegedly accepted money from the con artist in exchange for arresting and detaining another fraudster with whom he (hushpuppi) had a falling out.
According to Sahara Reporters, four FBI officials met with the IGP on Thursday, requesting that Nigeria’s famed cop, Kyari, be extradited to the US for questioning in connection with the operations of alleged serial online fraudster Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi.
According to the source, the agents returned on Friday (today) to ensure that their requests be honored, citing the case’s importance. “FBI agents met with the IGP yesterday (Thursday) to demand Abba Kyari’s arrest and extradition to the US, citing the case’s urgency,” he said. Four FBI agents returned to the IG’s office this morning, requesting that Kyari be released for questioning.
Meanwhile, as of Thursday night, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, had ordered an internal investigation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s charges and indictment processes against Kyari.
