US Court Documents Reveal How Hushpuppi Allegedly Bribed Abba Kyari With N8m

LAGOS JULY 30TH (NEWSRANGERS)-An extract of a conversation between top cop, Abba Kyari and disgraced fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa also known as Hushpuppi, has given solid insight into their activities together.

A US Court document, released on Thursday, detailed conversations between Kyari and Hushpuppi regarding bribery and the arrest of another suspected fraudster.

POLITICS NIGERIA learned that Hushpuppi, who recently pleaded guilty in the United States, squealed on how he bribed Kyari with a total of N8 million to effect the arrest of a rival con artist.

Court filings reveal that Hushpuppi opened up during interrogation that he paid bribes to Kyari, a popular Nigerian police officer to have one of his rivals arrested and jailed in Nigeria following a quarrel over a $1.1 million scam on a Qatari businessperson.

Abbas had asked Kyari to arrest and jail Kelly Chibuzor Vincent after both were locked in a bitter quarrel presumably over how to share the $1.1 million largesse stolen from the Qatari businessperson. Out of aspite, Vincent had contacted the victim and informed him that he was being defrauded by a syndicate involving him(vincent) and Abbas, hence foiling the entire scam.

This development angered Hushpuppi who then contacted Kyari to arrest and detain Vincent.

Kyari quickly swung into action with his team and arrested Vincent in Nigeria. Hushpuppi then proceeded to ask Kyari to treat him like an armed robber and also keep him in detention for a long time.

He pledged to pay for Vincent’s incarceration to which Kyari accepted and sent an account number.

Court documents further disclosed that Kyari provided the account information for a bank account at a Nigerian bank, Zenith Bank, in the name of a person other than himself.

The document continued; “This was not the only time that Abbas arranged payments with Kyari. On May 20, 2020, Abbas sent Kyari transaction receipts for two transactions from accounts at Nigerian banks (GTBank and Zenith Bank) of a person Abbas knew in the U.A.E.—a person also arrested with Abbas in Abbas’ apartment in the U.A.E. by Dubai Police on June 9, 2020—to the Nigerian bank accounts of another person in Nigeria.”

“The amounts on the transaction receipts totalled 8 million Nigerian Naira, which was approximately $20,600 based on publicly available exchange rate information.”
