The most decorated officer Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, whose name started trending in Nigeria earlier today after embattled Nigerian socialite, Hushpuppi, told U.S. authorities he paid bribe to him, has denied the allegation


According to a report by the Department of Justice, in California, USA, Hushpuppi named the respected Nigerian police officer when he admitted to executing an international scheme to defraud a Qatari school founder of over $1 Million.


In a shocking revelation, the report accused Abba Kyari of collecting monies from Hushpuppi to arrest one Kelly Chibuzo Vincent, an accomplice of Hushpuppi in Nigeria after he (Vincent) betrayed Hushpuppi by informing a victim that he was being scammed after having a dispute with his gang.


“Court documents outline a dispute among members of the conspiracy, which allegedly prompted Vincent to contact the victim and claim that Abbas and Juma were engaged in fraud. After this contact, Abbas allegedly arranged to have Vincent jailed in Nigeria by Abba Kyari, 46, of Nigeria.” The report said.


The report further described Abba Kyari as “a highly decorated deputy commissioner of the Nigeria Police Force who is alleged to have arranged for Vincent to be arrested and jailed at Abbas’ behest, and then sent Abbas photographs of Vincent after his arrest. Kyari also allegedly sent Abbas bank account details for an account into which Abbas could deposit payment for Vincent’s arrest and imprisonment.”

But reacting to the allegation on Thursday morning, Abba Kyari strongly denied it, stating that he never demanded money from Hushpuppi.


Abba Kyari, however, admitted to having some level of contact with Hushpuppi. He also admitted to knowing about a money-related dispute between Hushpuppi and Vincent
