Nigeria Police Commission Suspends Abba Kyari by NewsGeh: 1:05pm On Aug 02, 2021
Following a recommendation by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, the Police Service Commission (PSC) on Sunday suspended a Deputy Commissioner of Police and Head, Intelligence Response Team of the Nigeria Police Force, Abba Kyari.

Kyari was suspended over his indictment by the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation for alleged involvement in a $1.1m internet fraud perpetrated by Abass Ramon, aka Hushpuppi, and six other co-conspirators.

Baba had earlier on Sunday, recommended the “immediate suspension” of Kyari from the Nigeria Police Force.

The police commission, in a statement titled: ‘FBI indictment: PSC suspends DCP Abba Kyari, directs IGP to furnish it with information on further developments,’ said Kyari’s suspension took effect on Saturday, July 31, 2021.

The statement, which also directs IGP to furnish the PSC with information on further developments’, was signed by the commission’s Head, Press, and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani.

The statement read, “The Police Service Commission has suspended Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police and Head, Intelligence Response Team of the Nigeria Police Force from the exercise of the Powers and functions of his office.

“Abba Kyari’s suspension took effect from Saturday, July 31st, 2021, and would subsist pending the outcome of the investigation in respect of his indictment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States.

“The Commission has also directed the Inspector General of Police to furnish it with information on further development on the matter for necessary further action.

“The Commission’s decision which was conveyed in a letter with reference, PSC/POL/D/153/vol/V/138 to the Inspector General of Police today, Sunday, August 1st, 2021, was signed by Hon. Justice Clara Bata Ogunbiyi, a retired Justice of the Supreme Court and Honourable Commissioner 1 in the Commission for the Commission’s Chairman, Alhaji Musiliu Smith, a retired Inspector General of Police who is currently on leave.”

The FBI criminal complaint lodged at the United States District Court in California had listed Hushpuppi and Kyari among six suspects indicted in a $1.1m international conspiracy to defraud a Qatari businessman.

Also implicated in the scam are AbdulRahman Juma (Abdul); Vincent Kelly Chibuzo (Kelly); Rukayat Motunrayo Fashola (Morayo); and Bolatito Tawakalitu Agbabiaka (Bolamide).

Hushpuppi had pleaded guilty to the fraud.
