Police report - Abba Kyari’s brother received N279m from Hushpuppi

Police investigations have shown how members of a syndicate led by international scammer Ramon Abass, also known as Hushpuppi, paid N235, 120, 000 to the younger brother of Abba Kyari, a former Commander of the Intelligence Response Team.

Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, is also suspected of funneling N44 million to his brother's bank account in repeated transactions, according to the investigation.

However, the investigative report received by newsmen on Monday did not reveal if Kyari's brother was working as a proxy for his beleaguered elder brother, who is currently in NDLEA detention.

The DCP, who was suspended by the police in July for alleged ties to Hushpuppi, is accused of attempting to sell part of the cocaine confiscated from drug dealers in Enugu while on suspension.

According to the investigation report presented to the Attorney-General of the Federation, the cyber scam gang members Efe Martins (lead coordinator), Sikiru Adekoya, Usman Ibrahim, and Hussaini Ala transferred a total of N279.120m to the younger Kyari's bank account at various times.

It stated, "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."
