The police has revealed how members of a syndicate including Ramon Abass aka Hushpuppi paid N235, 120, 000 to a younger brother of Abba Kyari, the embattled former Commander, Intelligence Response Team of the Nigerian Police Force.
In a report made available by the police, Kyari also paid N44m into his brothers account in multiple transactions over a period of time.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the report did not mention whether Kyari’s brother was acting alone or was collecting the funds on behalf of his brother who was recently caught on camera by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) engaging in drug trade.
He allegedly tried to sell seized cocaine from dealers in Enugu even though he was on suspension.
In the investigation report which the police submitted to Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation, those that made payments to Kyari’s brother include, Efe Martins (lead coordinator), Sikiru Adekoya, Usman Ibrahim, and Hussaini Ala.
The statement partly read, “Sikiru Adekoya has many times received money from Hushpuppi and Efe and has equally transferred money to Usman Ibrahim. Adekoya after initial denial of having any financial transaction with both Hushpuppi and Efe Martins eventually admitted receiving various sums of money through transfers into his GTBank.
‘’However, he could not offer reasonable explanations of what the sums were meant for and what he did with the monies. The network of Hushpuppi Internet fraud syndicate consists of Efe Martins as the lead coordinator who through his company, Efe Martins Integrated Concept Ltd., has at various times transferred different sums of money to Sikiru Adekoya, Usman Waziri Ibrahim, Hussaini Ala.
“A junior brother to DCP Kyari is a major beneficiary of funds from the Zenith Bank account of Hussaini Ala from where he at different times received various sums totaling N218, 120, 000. He also received the sum of N44m in multiple transactions from DCP Abba Kyari.’’
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Kyari was taken into custody on Monday along side four officers by the NDLEA for dealing on illicit drugs.
The four officers include Sunday Ubuah, ASP Bawa James, Inspector Simon Agrigba and John Nuhu.
Another officer, ASP John Umoru, is said to be on the run.
