the embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, on Tuesday, appeared before the Special Investigation Panel set up by the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba to question him on the allegations levelled against him in the fraudulent case filed against internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi.
The former head of the Intelligence Response Team who appear before the panel headed by the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of the Force Criminal Investigations Department, Joseph Egbunike, noted that he did not receive a bribe from Hushpuppi.
Kyari insisted that he is innocent in the $1.1million Internet fraud perpetrated by Hushpuppi, and five others.
A top source that spoke with SaharaReporters said, “Kyari has not admitted participating in the fraud yet. He admitted that he lived a large life and has a community of friends locally and abroad, but he is still insisting that monies did not pass between him and the fraudster. He was cross-examined till the evening hours. He would still be re-invited.”
“His defence seems weak before the panel but they are careful not to be quick in nailing him in the matter because of the boomerang effects.”
