Police investigations have uncovered how Nigerian popular fraudster, Ramon Abas a.k.a Hushpuppi, paid the sum of N235,120,000 to the younger brother of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police and Head of Intelligence Response Team of the Nigeria Police Force, Abba Kyari.
According to The PUNCH, the police also revealed how Kyari sent N44m in different transactions to his brother while also noting that a total of N279.120m flowed into Kyari’s younger brother’s bank account at various times.
The investigative report also linked Abba Kyari and his younger brother to the cyber scam syndicate members whose name are: Efe Martins (lead coordinator), Sikiru Adekoya, Usman Ibrahim, and Hussaini Ala.
The report partly reads:
“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.’’
Worthy of mention, the report is following the arrest of Abba Kyari over alleged links to an international drug cartel.
