Full Extract Of Kyari’s Conversation With Hushpuppi That Nailed Him

A US Court document has detailed conversations between Nigeria’s celebrated Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, and infamous suspected fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, alias Hushpuppi regarding bribery and arrest of another suspected fraudster.

Hushpuppi, who recently pleaded guilty in the United States, had narrated how he bribed Kyari.

Officials said in court filings that Hushpuppi disclosed during interrogation that he paid bribes to Nigeria’s police chief, Kyari, to have one of his rivals arrested and jailed in Nigeria following a dispute over a $1.1 million dupe of a Qatari businessperson.

Abbas had asked Kyari to arrest and jail a fellow fraudster Kelly Chibuzor Vincent after both were locked in a dispute presumably over how to share the $1.1 million loot received from the Qatari businessperson.

Vincent subsequently contacted the victim and informed them that they were being scammed by a syndicate involving him and Abbas.

This elicited anger from Abbas (Hushpuppi), who contacted Kyari to arrest and jail his rival over the dispute. Abbas (Hushpuppi) said Kyari sent pictures of Vincent in jail and subsequently sent a bank account number to him (Hushpuppi) to which a wire transfer should be made having done a ‘good’ job as sent by Abbas (Hushpuppi).

But, Kyari had taken to his Facebook page to react to the allegation, claiming he only assisted Hushpuppi to get native clothes and caps worth N300,000.

Although he admitted to arresting Vincent, he said it was after Hushpuppi alleged that Vincent was threatening his family here in Nigeria.

Kyari denied knowing about the relationship between Hushpuppi and Vincent at the initial stage and later discovered Vincent and Hushpuppi had a misunderstanding over the said amount of money.

He also said he never demanded any money from Abbas (Hushpuppi), adding that they (Kyari and his team) were focused on saving people who were being threatened.

But, the court document proves otherwise, showing clearly that Kyari’s claims were lies.

According to the document, after an earlier discussion with Kyari, Hushpuppi requested for Vincent’s (also known as Chibuzor) contact details, which the latter provided.

Hushpuppi forwarded the contact details to Kyari and on January 15, 2020, Hushpuppi sent an audio recording to Kyari via WhatsApp, stating that he wanted to remind Kyari about what they discussed earlier.

On January 16, 2020, Hushpuppi sent the following threats to Chibuzor: “I dey always tell people to think well before they offend me and make them make sure they fit stand the consequences when the time comes. I won’t say more than that but very soon, very, very soon, the wrath of my hands shall find you and when it does, it will damage you forever. At this point I no get discussion with you, you have committed a crime that won’t be forgiven, that is punishable and you shall receive die (sic) punishment in due time. I swear with my life, you will regret messing with me, you will even wish you died before my hands will touch you.”

Later on, Kyari confirmed the arrest and detention of Vincent Chibuzor to Abbas (Hushpuppi), who requested for an account number to which he will send the bribe meant for Kyari’s team members.

Hushpuppi also pleaded with Kyari to inform his team members to deal with Vincent like an armed robber.

The transcript of their conversation goes thus:

First, Kyari sent a message to Hushpuppi saying, “We would pick him today or tomorrow.”

Abbas (Hushpuppi) wrote, “I will take care of the team also after they pick him up.”

Kyari confirmed “Yes ooo.”

It also stated that on January 20, 2020, Kyari sent biographical, identifying information for Chibuzor to Hushpuppi.

Their conversation goes thus: Abbas (Hushpuppi) confirmed “that is him sir.”

Kyari stated, “We have arrested the guy . . . He is in my cell now. This is his picture after we arrested him today.”

After receiving the photograph of Vincent/Chibuzor, Abbas (Hushpuppi) said, “I want him to go through serious beating of his life.”

In response to Kyari’s question about what Chibuzor had done to Abbas (Hushpuppi), Abbas sent Kyari an audio message.

He said: “What he did is, I have one job. The job want to pay me 500, umm, 75,000 dollars [i.e., $575,000]. He went to message the job behind me because I told him to help me make one document for me to give the job. Then he went—he has a—I gave him the details.

“Then he went to message the job behind my back and try to divert the money and in this process he tell the job because of the documents he gave me that I gave the job, he tell the job, ‘These document they sent to you before. These people are fake (sic).

“This money—is me who can help you to get it. Come to me le—bring this money you want to pay these people to me. I’m the only one who can help you,’ and all these things to divert the job for himself.”

After listening to the message, Kyari simply said he understood without requesting other information or evidence relating to Chibuzor’s role in the scheme, or any questions about the nature of the transaction, the document added.

Hushpuppi further said he wanted to pay money to send Chibuzor to jail for a long time, stating “Please sir I want to spend money to send this boy to jail, let him go for a very long time.”

Kyari responded, “Ok bro, I understand I will discuss with my team who arrested him . . . And handling the case. We will do something about it.”

Hushpuppi responded, “Let me know how I can send money to the team sir, let them deal with him like armed robber.”

Kyari responded, “OK I will send their account details to u.”

Hushpuppi further wrote, “He betrayed me and try (sic) to take food out my mouth, this is great punishable sin,” and Kyari responded, “Yeah bro.”

Hushpuppi said, “I want him to suffer for many years.”

Kyari responded, “Hahahaha Hahahaha.”

The document stated that about some minutes later, Kyari provided the account information for a bank account at a Nigerian bank, Zenith Bank, in the name of a person other than Kyari himself.

Hushpuppi responded “Ok sir, tomorrow by noon.”

This showed that Hushpuppi planned to pay the Nigeria Police Force officers who arrested Chibuzor for that service.

A part of the document stated, ”This was not the only time that Abbas arranged payments with Kyari. On May 20, 2020, Abbas sent Kyari transaction receipts for two transactions from accounts at Nigerian banks (GTBank and Zenith Bank) of a person Abbas knew in the U.A.E.—a person also arrested with Abbas in Abbas’ apartment in the U.A.E. by Dubai Police on June 9, 2020—to the Nigerian bank accounts of another person in Nigeria.

“The amounts on the transaction receipts totalled 8 million Nigerian Naira, which was approximately $20,600 based on publicly available exchange rate information.”

Tambuwal’s Special Adviser’s Son, Two Others Sent To Jail Over Nude Video

Aminu Hayatau Tafida, a son of the Special Adviser on Social Investments to Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State, and two others have been sentenced to four years and six-month imprisonment.

Those sentenced alongside Aminu are Umar Abubakar and Masaud Abubakar Gidado.

The trio were handed an option of N400,000 fine each, including compensation for alleged circulation of an 18-second nude video, in a case that has suffered several adjournments.

Delivering judgement on Tuesday, Chief Magistrate Shu’aibu Ahmad of the Magistrate Court sitting in Sokoto, said the prosecuting counsel had proved his case beyond any reasonable doubts and as such, the three accused persons were convicted for the very offenses put forward before them.

While citing Section 209 ACJN of Sokoto 2019, Shu’aibu, however, gave opportunity to counsels to the defendants to make any other submission before reading his sentences.

On the strength of that, counsels to all the defendants separately but unanimously said they did not intend to call any other witness. They, however, pleaded that justice should be tempered with mercy on grounds that all the defendants were youths who had the future before them and first-time offenders; hence the need to consider option of fine as well.

“We are appealing to this honorable court to show leniency in its sentence, more so that they have all shown remorsefulness over their actions. We are, therefore, appealing that other options should also be considered as sentencing convicts is no longer a fashion this time around.

“If in case this court so wish to sentence them, the court should be liberal taking into cognisance the economic hardship being faced this time around, we so appeal,” they stated.

In his sentence, the presiding magistrate, Shuaibu Ahmad, said he had taken into consideration the fact that the defendants were first-time offenders, and that he will therefore be lenient but give maximum sentence.

Shu’aibu said, for the offences of indecent act which goes contrary to Section 171 of Sokoto State Penal Code, the defendants are sentenced to pay a fine of N200,000 each ,whose default will lead to two-year imprisonment.

He said for the offence of sharing and sale of obscene book, the defendants are sentenced to pay 50,000 each, for whose default will lead to two- year imprisonment.

Shu’aibu further said that, for the offence of abatement, Section 48 of the Sokoto Penal Code provides N50,000 naira or conviction for six months in the case of default.

Shu’aibu also said that each of the defendants is to pay N100,000 compensation to the complainant.

Reacting to the development, both the prosecutor, ASP Simon Sule; and the complainant said they were satisfied with the judgment, and, according to them, the pronouncements will serve as deterrence to others.

FG not interested in naming sponsors of terrorism – Adesina

The presidency would rather let the EFCC and other related agencies investigate these allegations and drag suspected terror funders before courts.

The President Muhammadu Buhari administration is not keen on naming and shaming rich and powerful individuals who fund terrorism in Nigeria, according to the president’s spokesperson Femi Adesina.

“Naming and shaming would not be the motive, rather bringing malefactors to justice would be it,” Adesina said on a ChannelsTV programme.

There have been widespread insinuations and allegations that some of the moneybags who sponsor terrorism in Nigeria are serving in government.

“The United Arab Emirates has brought some names and the Attorney General of the Federation has responded to that matter, saying that in due course, all these people would have their days in court.

“Rest assured that these people (terror financiers) would be tried before justice and justice would have its way,” the presidential aide added.

Nigeria has been battling Boko Haram terrorism since 2009. In recent times, bandits and kidnappers have also become a recurring nightmare for the country’s northern region.
