The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), has contacted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to arrest DCP Abba Kyari, over his connection with serial internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas popular as Hushpuppi.
According to an EFCC source who spoke with SaharaReporters, no arrest can be made by the agency because Kyari is a police officer.
The source also said that the case was not within the capacity of the EFCC but for the police to handle.
“FBI has contacted EFCC, asking that we arrest Abba Kyari but we told them that it is a police matter” the source in the EFCC said.
Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police has ordered an internal review of all the allegations levelled against Kyari by Hushpuppi.
The suspected internet fraudster who was arrested in Dubai in June 2020 allegedly told the FBI that he gave a bribe to Kyari to facilitate the arrest and imprisonment of a member of his online fraud gang identified as Chibuzo Vincent. Kyari has however denied this allegation.
