Hushpuppi news : Police Watery Report has Recommended One-Step Demotion For DCP Abba Kyari.
The Disciplinary Committee of the Nigerian Police Force has recommended that DCP Abba Kyari, the suspended Commander of the IRT, be demoted to Assistant Commissioner of Police.
According to Punch, the Committee did so after reviewing the report of the Special Investigation Panel, which looked into Kyari after an affidavit from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation indicted him.
Kyari was found to have socialized with fraudsters and to have broken the Nigeria Police Force’s social media policies by responding to the FBI’s indictment on his Facebook page without following established procedures.

Following the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN’s observations, the police have launched new investigations into the suspended DCP.
Malami had noted that while there was a prima facie case against Kyari, the police report was insufficient to convict him in court.
“There exists a prima facie case of conspiracy, collaboration, receipt, conversion, transfer and/or retention of proceeds of unlawful activities contrary to the provisions of Section 15, 17 & 18 of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2004 and Section 17 of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Est) Act, Cap EI Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 against DCP Abba Kyari and other suspects in view of the overwhelming evidence showing the nativity of the proceeds of unlawful activities.”
In the meantime, the Police Service Commission has given the police a two-week deadline to complete their investigation into Kyari’s allegations.
The US Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California had issued an arrest warrant for Kyari because of his alleged ties to Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, alias Hushpuppi, a suspected fraudster who is on trial for various offenses including internet fraud and money laundering.
Hushpuppi has since pleaded guilty to the charges, and if found guilty, he faces a 20-year prison sentence, three years of supervised release, and monetary restitution of $500,000 or more.
You should know that the Nigeria Police Report has recommended a One-Step Demotion for DCP Abba Kyari on the Hushpuppi Scandal.
