Kyari is threatening to expose other top police officers who have benefitted from his largesse, should he be handed over to the FBI and extradited.

 

Abba Kyari

Abba Kyari, the embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, on Friday assembled a team of lawyers to fight off his looming arrest and extradition by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States, which appears to be hell bent in returning with the alleged fraudulent officer, according to an exclusive report by SaharaReporters.

SaharaReporters learnt that Kyari is also lobbying the Nigeria Police Force starting with the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, and threatening to expose other top police officers who have benefitted from his largesse, should he be handed over to the FBI and extradited.

SaharaReporters gathered that Kyari, whose links with serial internet fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, alias Hushpuppi, were becoming too evident to deny, warned that he would expose the “dirty jobs” he had done for past and present Inspector-Generals of Polcie as well as some political elites in the country, if they did nothing to stop his extradition.

“There was a stormy meeting on Friday at the Inspector-General of Police’s office between the IGP and police authorities and the FBI agents. Kyari on his part is threatening that many senior officers benefited from his ‘generosity’ and if he’s betrayed, he would expose them.

“He’s now got a team of lawyers. Abba Kyari is still being assured by the police hierarchy that he would not be extradited to the US. He has warned that if he is extradited, the current and past IGPs and members of the political elites he provided support for and assisted for dirty jobs will all be exposed.”


SaharaReporters also reported exclusively that Kyari was given till next week to formally respond to the allegations till his extradition to the US would be decided by the police authorities.

SaharaReporters since Thursday in several reports on Kyari exposed how Hushpuppi claimed to have offered bribes to the top police officer, going by court documents that were ordered unsealed.

The United States Attorney’s Office, Central District of California, had also issued an arrest warrant against Kyari for his alleged links to Hushpuppi, who is standing trial for various offences that include internet fraud and money laundering.

The court documents also outlined a dispute among members of the Hushpuppi conspiracy, which allegedly prompted him to arrange to have an individual identified as ‘co-conspirator’ Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, jailed in Nigeria by DCP Kyari.

According to the affidavit, “Kyari is a highly decorated deputy commissioner of the Nigeria Police Force who is alleged to have arranged for Vincent to be arrested and jailed at Abbas’ behest, and then sent Abbas photographs of Vincent after his arrest.

“Kyari also allegedly sent Abbas bank account details for an account into which Abbas could deposit payment for Vincent’s arrest and imprisonment.”


The Inspector-General of Police has ordered an internal review of the United States’ authorities’ allegations against Kyari.





Why I Keep My Family Life Private – Ebuka Opens Up In New Interview

Ebuka, in a recent interview with Schick Magazine, disclosed why he keeps his family life private.

 

Ebuka Obi-Uchendu

There is no doubt that Ebuka Obi-Uchendu is a household name in the entertainment and media space but very little is known about his private life.

In a recent interview with Schick Magazine, Ebuka disclosed that he keeps his family life private because they did not choose to be in the limelight, but he chose that path.

He said, “If I could, I would never talk about them or even put out images of them anywhere. But, I cannot help it because I also love to celebrate them and show off how blessed I am with such an amazing wife. So, I have to balance it out and do it on my terms.”

The father of two also disclosed that one of the reasons for keeping his family off the Internet was because he got upset whenever his wife was talked about or attacked.

He added, “It is very tough on different levels. For me, I get very riled up when she is attacked or talked about. I am very defensive and protective of her. While she’s also defensive of me, I think it’s more the fact that she was suddenly thrust into this life without knowing what to expect, so it took her a while to come to terms with it. She still fully hasn’t, but it’s a lot easier now.”

The media personality also revealed he met his wife on the popular micro-blogging site, Twitter, while noting that there was no intention to marry her from the beginning.

He said, “I met her on Twitter. We followed each other, exchanged messages a few times and then kept it moving.

“The connection wasn’t instant, but over time I think I realised that, beyond how much of a happy person she is, our values aligned so strongly that an attraction started to form. It also helped that she has the biggest smile in the world and laughed a lot at things I said and vice versa. From the day we started talking seriously, I knew literally two months later that I wanted to marry her.”

Widely known across Africa as the host of Big Brother Naija, the 39-year-old lawyer said that hosting the reality show was an opportunity many would not want to pass on adding that the chance had been a dream come true for him.

He said, “I think every TV host in Nigeria, if not the continent, always has an eye on hosting Big Brother. As humans, we continuously aspire to reach the top, so from the day I started hosting my first TV show in 2006, I started picturing it. I also figured it would make for a great story, seeing a former housemate host the show, but I didn’t sit around feeling entitled to it. I got on with my work, believing the opportunity would come one day. So, when it came, I was fully prepared for it.”

The commission also noted that Kyari might face dismissal or demotion, and criminal prosecution if found culpable in the fraud perpetrated by an Instagram influencer and fraudster, Ramon Abass, popularly known as Hushpuppi.

Hushpuppi and Abba Kyari

According to a report by The PUNCH, the Police Service Commission has said it will determine the fate of the Commander of the IGP  Intelligence Response and Monitoring Team, Abba Kyari, a deputy commissioner of police, indicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for alleged involvement in a $1.1m Internet fraud.

The commission also noted that Kyari might face dismissal or demotion, and criminal prosecution if found culpable in the fraud perpetrated by an Instagram influencer and fraudster, Ramon Abass, popularly known as Hushpuppi.

A Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal complaint lodged at the United States District Court in California had listed Hushpuppi and Kyari among six suspects indicted in the international fraud conspiracy.

The other suspects include AbdulRahman  Juma (Abdul); Vincent Kelly Chibuzo (Kelly); Rukayat Motunrayo Fashola (Morayo); and Bolatito Tawakalitu Agbabiaka (Bolamide).

Kyari, who is popularly known as ‘super cop,’ had received rapid promotions and a commendation from the National Assembly for his exploits in crime fighting.

His arrest of several notorious criminals, including alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudi Onuamadike, commonly known as Evans, among other notable arrests, shot him to the limelight.

On Wednesday, however, an unsealed 69-page court document showed that he had been under investigation by the FBI for his alleged link to Hushpuppi, who had pleaded guilty to fraud.

In the case marked 2:21-cr-00203, USA vs Abba Alhaji Kyari dated April 29, 2021, the FBI asked a US District Court in California to order Kyari’s arrest.

The US Department of Justice in a statement said Hushpuppi admitted during interrogation that he paid bribes to Kyari to have one of his rivals arrested and jailed in Nigeria following a dispute over a $1.1m fraud involving a Qatari businessman.

According to the FBI, Hushpuppi asked Kyari to arrest a fellow fraudster, Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, after both were involved in a dispute over the $1.1m loot.

It was stated in the court document that in September 2019, Kyari travelled to Dubai and was picked by Hushpuppi’s driver.

Following the US court arrest warrant, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, ordered a review of the information on Kyari.

But speaking to our correspondent on Friday, the Commissioner in charge of Media on the board of the Police Service Commission, Mr Austin Braimoh, said the PSC would not be bound by the IG’s review of the allegations against Kyari, noting that the commission would carry out further probe on whatever findings the police authorities made on Kyari.

Braimoh stated that the commission’s findings would determine Kyari’s future in the police force.

He said, “The commission won’t say anything until we get the official report. We are the final decision-maker on his fate as a police officer. Everything concerning his indictment can be investigated and the criminal aspect of it can be sent to the law court but on the official aspect concerning discipline; no other body has power to do anything to him as a police officer, it is only the commission that has such powers.

“So, the commission is awaiting the full report of investigation and his indictment and we will treat it officially; we would apply the law. The law will determine the various punishments that we can award against him. He can be dismissed depending on the gravity of the offence; we can demote him, reduce his rank; we can suspend him.


“Many things are laid out before us pertaining to various offences and after that, the criminal aspect would be referred to the court for prosecution. It depends on how the report is coming; whether it is coming to us directly for us to extricate the criminal aspect and treat it or they want to treat it and refer the official one to us to discipline him.’’

Asked if the police could be trusted to carry out a thorough, unbiased investigation, the commissioner disclosed that the PSC investigation department will subject the findings of the police review to further investigations.

Giving an insight into the disciplinary process the embattled DCP would go through, Braimoh explained that Kyari would be queried after which he would be interrogated by the Force Disciplinary Committee.

He noted, “We don’t always believe the police should investigate the police (personnel) except through the commission. But the important thing is that whatever thing they decide to do, we are not obliged to accept their investigations. So, our investigation department would still go further to get the facts.

‘’What we know they would do is that a query would be issued based on the complaints against him, he would be asked to defend himself and then, he would face what we call the Force Disciplinary Committee which would interrogate him and the report is passed to the DIG in charge and from there to the IG.

‘’The IG would basically forward the final findings and recommendations to the commission. The commission would now carry on with their own investigation; we have to re-investigate what they have done to ensure that they comply with the rule of law and what is expected.

‘’Our lawyer would look into it, he would check the facts and if we feel there is negligence and that some things are not done, we would do a thorough job and eventually, we would have recommendations from the standing committee to the plenary for a final decision and our decision is final on his career.’’


When asked if Kyari should be suspended pending the investigation’s outcome, Braimoh said this was the normal thing to do.

He, however, observed that the US court had not criminalised the IRT commander, noting that Kyari would have to step aside once the allegations against him were established.

The commissioner added, “The way we look at it is that the court has given an order that he should be arrested, the court has not criminalised him yet; he has not been convicted.

‘’Since, there is little hope, or what you call beyond reasonable doubt, he may be found clean. The issue of stepping aside in Nigeria may be different.  The facts of the allegations would be made available to the force, and I’m sure the needful would be done. ‘’


Meanwhile, there is uncertainty over the setting up of the panel that would review the allegations against Kyari.

Although the IG announced on Thursday that the force would review the allegations against Kyari, Saturday PUNCH could not confirm if this had been done on Friday.

The force spokesman, Frank Mba, did not respond to inquiries on the composition of the review panel and the deadline for the submission of its report.

He stated that he got a message “from God” to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, and the Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Igboho.

 

Kanu and Igboho

Apostle Paul Okikijesu, a Nigerian cleric and General Overseer of the Christ Apostolic Miracle Ministry, has stated that he got a message “from God” to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, and the Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho).

According to Okikijesu, God has promised to intervene in their cases, if the activists could fast and pray for three days as this will assure a divine intervention.

“Thus says the Lord of hosts: within the next 21 days, I will release Kanu and Sunday from their incarceration,” he prophesied in a statement released on Thursday.

“They used people of their tribes for them to know their movement, arrest them, and bring charges against them.

“This is what caused what happened to them; because if there is no one with their organization, or very close to them, who anonymously provided confidential information, and betrayed them; they will not find themselves in their present situations.

“Kanu and Sunday should be cautious; they should not apply only their own wisdom to their journeys; because the wisdom of I the Lord alone is worth in anyone’s journey.

“It is certain people who decided that ‘let us silence these people.’ If there is a powerful person in a state, and there is no one who can subdue the powerful person; then, people will use those who are close to the powerful person, who understands him and speaks the language of the powerful person. It is such people that were used to divulge the ways to entrap Kanu and Sunday Igboho.

“Inform both Kanu and Sunday Igboho, they should fast for three days from July 29th, 2021 to July 31, 2021. I the Lord Myself, the Almighty God, the Ancient of Days, I the One who is called Jehovah in the eternal throne; who created mankind.

“I the Lord Myself will intervene in their cases, and I will take control/possess those who incarcerated them; then the truth shall manifest, and they will be set free from detention,”
 he said.

Sylvia said her heart bled whenever she remembered Usifo’s death, lamenting that it was painful she could not monitor his last moments.

 

Usifo Ataga

Usifo Ataga

According to a report by The PUNCH, Mrs Sylvia Ataga, the mother of the slain Super TV Chief Executive Officer, Usifo Ataga, has shared fond memories of her son who was laid to rest on Friday at Ebony Vaults in Ikoyi, Lagos State.

Sylvia said her heart bled whenever she remembered Usifo’s death, lamenting that it was painful she could not monitor his last moments.

Usifo’s wife and children also paid their tributes as friends of the deceased demanded a thorough investigation into his murder.

They noted that though he had been buried, the case should not be swept under the carpet.

Usifo was found dead with multiple stabs on June 16 at a short let apartment on Adebowale Oshin Street, Lekki Phase I where he had checked in with his lover, 21-year-old Chidinma Ojukwu, a 300-level Mass Communication student at the University of Lagos.

Ojukwu was consequently arrested on June 23 in her father’s house in Yaba and paraded at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja.

She confessed to stabbing Usifo with a knife under the influence of alcohol and withdrawing N380,000 from the victim’s account with his ATM card. She, however, backtracked later in a video, absolving herself from the murder.

Usifo, aged 50, was buried on Friday in a low-key ceremony attended by his family members, including his wife, and friends. Most of the mourners were dressed in black outfits. Some of them donned black shirts with Usifo’s picture and #justice4Usifo inscribed on them.

Journalists were restricted from covering some aspects of the burial. A relation of the late Usifo seized our correspondent’s phone and deleted photos of the interment.

The late Usifo, enclosed in a white coffin, was lowered to the ground amid sobs and prayers by his family and friends.

Some bereaved family members at the burial ground declined comments. However, Usifo’s mother, wife and children paid tributes to him in a service of songs and funeral programme sighted by our correspondent.

In her tribute, the mother, Mrs Sylvia Ataga, reminisced about his birth and growing up, describing him as a loving, caring and peaceful son.

She wrote, “As an adult, he became so caring that I would hesitate to tell him that I was not feeling well. He would either hop on the next plane or send me funds to go and see a doctor. And monitor me for days. My pain is that I could not monitor him in his last week.

“God knows he did not deserve what those people did to him. My heart bleeds any time I remember. He was generous to a fault. It took his death for me to know how loved he was. He has been robbed of the joy of seeing a project he spent seven years working on.


“He has been denied the joy of seeing his children grow up, go to university, get married and make him a grandfather….Not to worry, Usifo has found glory with his Maker. I know one day I will hold my baby boy in my arms again.

“Usifo, you were taken from me at your golden age; a day before your golden birthday. That makes you extra precious; my golden son who gave me so much pleasure; quiet and loving….It broke my heart to lose you but you didn’t go alone, for part of me went with you the day God called you home.”

The wife, Brenda Ataga, said she and her daughters were looking forward to marking Usifo’s milestone in a special way before the news of his demise shattered their plan.

Brenda stated that her late husband was a man with a ‘heart of gold’ who led a godly life, adding that she had yet to come to terms with his death

She said, “The girls and I were looking forward to seeing you, to celebrating your milestone. I had imagined how surprised you would be when you walked in to see a place set up for you. I had imagined your infectious smile.

“Now we’re in this nightmare. I’m yet to comprehend the stark reality. That your life was cut short in your prime; at a renaissance of all you had toiled for…I’m lost for words.

“Our daughters were your pride and joy. You were always there as my backbone supporting as we shaped them. What a proud father you were…. You were a man after God’s heart! How can I forget our fervent prayers for the children; your faith that birthed our first child? Nor can I forget the corporate fellowship you led.”


One of the daughters, Emoata Ataga, described Usifo as an amazing man with whom she spent memorable pastimes and who always listened to her problems.

“I miss you daddy….Rest peacefully, Love. You will be sorely missed,” another daughter, Eboselulu Ataga, wrote.

A friend of the deceased, Adebayo Afon, urged the police to carry out thorough investigation and bring all those involved in the murder to justice.

He said, “It is always bad when you lose somebody but this is an exceptional one. Most of us, his friends, are still very surprised and confused. The good thing is that we have come to bury him today (Friday) but putting him to rest is not the answer.

“We need to know what happened. I don’t want to say much about police investigation but I must say it is an odd way of doing investigation.  We demand justice and must get it no matter what happens.’’


A close friend of the deceased, Daddinson Olumese, said he felt so pained at losing Usifo in such a cruel manner and enjoined the police to ensure justice is served.

Olumese said, “He was my first employer after I graduated from the university. I held him in high regard. He was a gentle man, God-fearing and humble. We are happy that the family had a form of closure by laying him to rest today. However, the rest may not be complete until we get to the end of this issue. We want the police to do their job and let us get justice so that my friend can have a peaceful rest.’’

How Nigeria Police Consistently Ignored Criminal Petitions Against ‘Super Cop’ Kyari — Activist Reveals

The source, who spoke to SaharaReporters, said the recent report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not come as a surprise to human rights groups, who pioneered the majority of the petitions.

 

Abba Kyari

According to an exclusive report by SaharaReporters, a human rights activist has explained how several petitions were sent to the Nigeria Police Force over atrocities allegedly committed by embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, but they were ignored for unknown reasons.

The source, who spoke to SaharaReporters, said the recent report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not come as a surprise to human rights groups, who pioneered the majority of the petitions.

According to him, many police units — including (Special Anti-Robbery Squad & Intelligence Response Squad) - headed by Kyari have been indicted in recurring cases of killing ‘wealthy’ suspects in custody and taking over the property perceived to be proceeds of crime.

He cited the death of Michael Adiukwu, a former police officer who masterminded the Offa bank robbery.

It was alleged that Adiukwu was ‘killed’ in custody because he was in possession of the money robbed from the bank.

The source also noted that a report by Amnesty International documented incidents of conversion of money and property of crime suspects arrested by the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) under Abba Kyari by the operatives of the rogue unit.

According to him, the persistent petitions against the rogue activities of Abba Kyari's IRT were part of what forced the then Inspector-General of Police to shut down the IGP IRT/STS (Special Tactical Squad).

He said, “Do you remember the execution, in custody, of Adiukwu the Offa robbery mastermind? His co-accused said Adiukwu was in possession of the money they robbed from the banks.

“There is nothing new to us — Nigerian human rights groups — about the revelation by the US intelligence agency about Abba Kyari. Or shall I rather say that it didn't come to many of us who know him as a surprise?”


A statement was issued by a coalition of Civil Society Organisations in July 2020 itemising some of the instances of criminal activities and human rights atrocities of the personnel of the IRT and STS states across Nigeria.

The statement was signed by Okechukwu Nwanguma, Executive Director, Rule of Law and Accountability Advocacy Centre; Segun Awosanya, Founder/President Social Intervention Advocacy Foundation (SIAF) and Justus Ijeoma, Esq, Executive Director, International Human Rights and Equity Defense Foundation (I-REF).

This followed a move by the then Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to disband the satellite offices and bases of the Inspector- General of Police IRT/STS.

The statement read: "Many of them engage in abductions, detention, torture, and extortion of targeted victims. They appropriate exhibits and illegally seized properties not connected to any crime and demand bribes in millions to release their victims.

”Case 1: Francis Eze, a trader at Onitsha Medicine Market (Ogbogwu) was arrested on Wednesday 18th of March, 2020 by officers of IRT. He was on his way to Owerri in his Sienna car when he was accosted and arrested by the IRT officers who operated in a Hummer Bus



”Francis was eventually released alongside others on Friday, the 20th in Kaduna while his vehicle was still held in their custody in Owerri. They also did not return his phone, wristwatch, and gold necklace to him. All these properties belonging to Francis have remained in their custody for yet-to-be explained reasons.

"Case 2: Onyebuchi Okonkwo informed us about the case of his brother, Ikechuchu Okonkwo, a trader at Bridgehead Market, Onitsha who was arrested on Monday, 8th of June, 2020 by a team of officers led by one Supol in Abuja. Ikechukwu was initially detained at Area Command, Onitsha and money extorted from him.

”Case 3: A young man who was facing harassment by operatives of IRT in Ogun State contacted RULAAC. His brother and friend were arrested in his place as bait to lure him to the station for a false allegation of armed robbery. One of the officers who arrested his brother was calling him and asking him to bring the sum of N200,000 for them to release his brother and end the manhunt on him.

”RULAAC got him to record the officers negotiating bribe with him. He did and forwarded the voice record to us. We forwarded the voice to the team leader who immediately released his brother and ended the manhunt on him after listening to the audio. The team leader also pleaded that we should not make the audio public. We still have it.”

”Case 4: Ann Okpara; A 36-year-old woman was arrested by men of the Intelligence Response Team at the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters on July 14, 2017, at Igando, Lagos State.

“According to her, she was arrested in lieu of her husband whom the police alleged was an accomplice to Evans currently being tried for various kidnapping cases.”

“Case 5: This case was one of the cases reported in Amnesty International’s report released in June 2020 entitled ‘Time to End Impunity: Torture and Other Violations by Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS)' under the sub-caption, 'Targeting Money And Property'.”

Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has again attacked popular musician Davido over his sour relationship with ex-fiancee, Chioma.
 
Maduagwu mocked Davido hours after the singer in a viral video was seen calling on his father from his luxurious car.
 
In the video, the popular singer who is in the US was seen cruising in his new Rolls Royce Cullinan while his father was inside a Bentley.

His dad was in front of him, so he called on his dad to go ahead while he came behind.
 
Reacting to this viral video, Uche mocked the DMW boss noting he’s busy screaming “My daddy” while his colleague, Burnaboy is screaming “My Grammy”.
 
According to the Instagram actor, the “If” singer will miss out on a Grammy award unless he marries his estranged fianceé, Chioma.
 
Maduagwu wrote: “Naija music industry get levels, driving your father’s Rolls Royce and screaming my daddy is one, winning globally with your music and screaming GRAMMY is another higher level.

“Davido told Bolanle he was the biggest Naija artiste even while Beyonce didn’t feature him but worked with others.

“Now it’s very clear that Grammy will not reach his hand without marrying Chioma. Baba is now screaming ‘my daddy’. Imagine what Chioma will be going through now emotionally?

“Only a daddy’s boy will come to social media and propose marriage but will not come back to announce breakup.”

Big Brother Naija housemate, Angel, has disclosed that her father manages her Instagram page while she is in the house.

Angel said this during a conversation with a fellow housemate, Boma, as she cooked in the kitchen.

The duo was having a conversation about Angel’s obsessions when, out of nowhere, Boma asked her who her Instagram handler was.

In her response, Angel said “My father.”

In disbelief, Boma told her that she was lying but Angel reaffirmed her claims.

“My parents are quite young. My mum had me when she was 16 and my dad is young too,” she said.

She went further and told Boma who is 34-year-old that he is almost her mother’s age.

The separatist group made this disclosure in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, made available to SaharaReporters on Friday.

 

IPOB

IPOB members

Popular separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced a total lockdown of social and economic activities every Monday starting from August 9 in the South-East region of the country.

According to the group, the sit-at-home protest will be observed weekly to demand the freedom of its incarcerated leader, Nnamdi Kanu who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) for a month.

The separatist group made this disclosure in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, made available to SaharaReporters on Friday.

In the statement titled, ‘IPOB Declares Indefinite Sit-At-Home Every Monday From August 9, 2021, Until Nnamdi Kanu Is Released’, the group referred to the planned weekly protest ‘ghost Monday.’

The statement reads, “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to announce to all Biafra citizens, friends of Biafra and lovers of Biafra freedom and independence that IPOB leadership has declared every Monday 'a ghost Monday.' This declaration takes effect from Monday, August 9, 2021.

“From that day, Biafra land will be on lockdown every Monday from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm until our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was unlawfully abducted in Kenya and illegally detained by the federal government of Nigeria is released.

“We wish to state full details of this coming ghost Mondays every week, our people must understand that it was designed to show the world how serious we are towards this fight for Biafra freedom and independence everybody must adhere to this clarion call put in place by the leadership of IPOB and it would be good for everyone to know that that IPOB will not relent until Biafra is fully achieved.”


The Nnamdi Kanu-led secessionist group allegedly faulted the operatives of the DSS for torturing its leader, adding that their plot is to kill him.

In the statement, the group reiterated that all those who betrayed Kanu into the hands of the Nigerian government would face the music for their actions if any harm befalls the separatist leader.

“The DSS can go ahead and keep our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu incommunicado without access to him and we observed that DSS operatives are torturing our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the point of death; that was why they don't want anybody to see his state of health in the DSS facility.

“DSS should know that if anything untoward happens to him, we are going to confirm what IPOB is made of and they will understand that we are prepared for this freedom. Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not a criminal and has the right to be visited in their custody.

“This is a call for Biafran leaders, politicians, especially those whose names have been mentioned as being behind his abduction and rendition to Nigeria if anything happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu all of them should prepare never to come back to Biafraland because it will not accommodate us together.

“Nobody should take our quietness as cowardice. Our intelligence reveals that Nnamdi Kanu is under serious torture and humiliation because he refused all offers given to him,”
 the statement reads in part.

While the group called on the Nigerian government to grant Kanu’s lawyers access to him and allow him to sign the British Consular documents to help him, it also bragged that it would paralyse the country’s economy till its leader regains freedom.

“We declare every Monday sit-at-home throughout Biafra land until our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu regains his freedom.

"The federal government must allow him to access to his personal physicians, and allow him to sign documents given to him by the British Government to provide him consular assistance. This peaceful protest will continue once every week until our demands are met.

“We urge Biafrans to be prepared because we will no longer fold our arms while our leader who is fighting for the liberation of the oppressed indigenous nationalities in Nigeria is languishing in detention. We are going to cripple the Nigerian economy until they free him.

 “Consequently, all institutions public and private, transport companies, schools, banks, markets, airports and seaports in Biafra land must shut down every Monday beginning from August 9. People are to remain indoors to register their concern over the fate of our Leader and the rest of all agitators languishing in various security detentions.

“Nobody should attempt to flout this directive as doing so may come with huge consequences. Anybody flouting this order is taking a grave risk.

“Nnamdi Kanu has sacrificed so much for Biafra, so sacrificing Mondays of every week is not too much for us. Fulani herdsmen have continued to kill our people yet the federal government failed to protect our people,”
 the statement added.

The resident in a private message to a Nigerian academic and media scholar, Farooq Kperogi claimed Kyari is currently building a mansion on Jemina Road, Damboa.

 

Abba Kyari

According to a report by SaharaReporters, a resident of Borno state has said the bribery allegation against Nigeria’s Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari by suspected fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, alias Hushpuppi, didn't come to him as a surprise.

The resident in a private message to a Nigerian academic and media scholar, Farooq Kperogi claimed Kyari is currently building a mansion on Jemina Road, Damboa.

Claiming the gate of the house was made of glass and steel, he alleged that the police chief offered N70 million to a neighbor who has a house behind his mansion “so he can have his house out of the way to enable him have straight access to the main road from this mansion.”

"Good evening Prof. Just reading your post on the Abba Kyari saga. It didn't come to me as a surprise. Kyari is so super rich for the job he does. He is building a mansion on Jemina road of Damboa, that house is something else. It is the first gigantic double-gated house I'm seeing in Maiduguri, the gate is made of glass and steel.

"He wanted paying (sic) of a neighbour who has a house behind him 70 million naira so he can have his house out of the way to enable him have straight access to the main road from this mansion. And with a couple of people who have told stories implicating him, and them being shut up, it doesn't come as a surprise at all,”
 Kperogi quoted the Borno resident as saying.

The United States Attorney’s Office, Central District of California, had issued an arrest warrant against Kyari for his alleged links to Hushpuppi, who is standing trial for various offences that include internet fraud and money laundering, among others.

Hushpuppi has since pleaded guilty to the charges and, if convicted, risks a 20-year-jail term, three-year supervision upon completion of jail term and monetary restitution to the tune of $500,000 or more.

“The defendants allegedly faked the financing of a Qatari school by playing the roles of bank officials and creating a bogus website in a scheme that also bribed a foreign official to keep the elaborate pretense going after the victim was tipped off,” 
said Acting United States Attorney Tracy L. Wilkison.

“Mr. Abbas, who played a significant role in the scheme, funded his luxurious lifestyle by laundering illicit proceeds generated by con artists who use increasingly sophisticated means.

“In conjunction with our law enforcement partners, we will identify and prosecute perpetrators of business email compromise scams, which is a massive and growing international crime problem."

“Mr. Abbas, among the most high-profile money launderers in the world, has admitted to his significant role in perpetrating global BEC fraud, a scheme currently plaguing Americans,”
 said Kristi K. Johnson, the Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office.

The court documents also outlined a dispute among members of the Hushpuppi conspiracy, which allegedly prompted him to arrange to have an individual identified as ‘co-conspirator’ Kelly Chibuzo Vincent, jailed in Nigeria by DCP Kyari.

According to the affidavit, “Kyari is a highly decorated deputy commissioner of the Nigeria Police Force who is alleged to have arranged for Vincent to be arrested and jailed at Abbas’ behest, and then sent Abbas photographs of Vincent after his arrest.

“Kyari also allegedly sent Abbas bank account details for an account into which Abbas could deposit payment for Vincent’s arrest and imprisonment.”


The Inspector General of Police has ordered an internal review of the United States’ authorities’ allegations against Kyari.

Operatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation have met with the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba demanding for supercop, Abba Kyari to be released to them for extradition, Sahara Reporters has reported.
 
Recall that Kyari, who is a Deputy Commissioner of Police was indicted in a fraud case by Ramon Abass aka Hushpuppi.
 
According to the report, four FBI agents met with the IGP on Thursday asking that Nigeria's celebrated cop, Kyari be taken to the United States for interrogation over his role in the activities of suspected serial internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, more commonly known as Hushpuppi.
 
The source stated that the agents have returned on Friday (today) to ensure their demands are met, citing the urgency of the case.
 
He said, "FBI agents met with the IGP yesterday (Thursday) to demand Abba Kyari's arrest and extradition to the United States citing the urgency of the case. Four FBI agents returned to the IG’s office this morning, they are there asking the IGP to release Kyari for interrogation."

Meanwhile, as of Thursday night, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, had ordered an internal review of the receipt of allegations and indictment processes from the Federal Bureau of Investigation against Kyari.
 
This was contained in a statement issued by the force's spokesperson, Frank Mba, on its Facebook page on Thursday night.
 
The force also stated that it is committed to the pursuit of justice and the strengthening of its professional relationship with the FBI and other international partners.
 
It assured Nigerians to further communicate developments on the case to members of the public.
 
The statement read, "Sequel to the receipt of allegations and indictment processes from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) against one of the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force, DCP Abba Kyari, the Inspector General of Police IGP Usman Alkali Baba psc (+), NPM, fdc has ordered an internal review of the allegations.

"The Nigeria Police Force reaffirms its commitment to the pursuit of justice and the strengthening of its professional relationship with the FBI and other international partners.

"Further developments on this case will be communicated to members of the public accordingly."
 
SaharaReporters earlier reported that the United States' Court had issued a warrant of arrest for Kyari, over his role in Hushpuppi’s multi-million naira fraud probe.
 
Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud.
 
Abbas was arrested in Dubai last June and he pleaded guilty to fraud in the U.S. this week.
 
The FBI said Abbas and Kyari have been friends and were both involved in a conspiracy to launder money.
 
American prosecutors first sought a court warrant to arrest Kyari on February 12, 2021.
 
Another warrant was requested on April 29, 2021.
 
Judge Wright’s permission for the FBI to arrest Mr Kyari and hold him in U.S. custody was unsealed on July 26.
 
Hushpuppi had narrated how he bribed 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.
 
Abbas had pleaded guilty to a multi-million fraud earlier this month and faces up to 20 years in jail.
 
He will be sentenced in the coming weeks and will forfeit some of his assets and his rights to appeal while also paying restitution to victims of his years-long fraud.
 
Kyari in a statement on Facebook has, however, dismissed the allegations of bribe.

The development comes amid claims that Atiku is nursing a presidential ambition ahead of the 2023 elections, although he has not publicly confirmed it.

 

Atiku Abubakar

Loyalists of Nigeria’s former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, have commenced the distribution of loaves of bread, branded ‘Atiku Kawai’ (Atiku Only) to Kano State residents.

The development comes amid claims that Atiku is nursing a presidential ambition ahead of the 2023 elections, although he has not publicly confirmed it.

The former Vice-President has been running for the highest office since 1993.

He was presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019, losing to the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.

Atiku challenged Buhari’s victory after the 2019 elections, but the Supreme Court dismissed the case.

Reactions have, however, trailed the distribution of the ‘Atiku Kawai’ bread.

“Poverty bread! Nigerians should be wiser now. The current administration has taught us a valuable lesson and if we don't learn now we will never learn,” Ojo Oluwaseyi posted on Facebook.

Cisco Ekeocha wrote, “When hunger is too much in the country, they want to use bread and bribe hungry once.”

Abodurin Deborah said, “As na bread we come life come chop... Shior.”

In the Arena, 23 stools were arranged with an envelope on each of them.

Biggie explained that in each envelope is a certain amount of Abeg Naira, which differs from another.

“This means some housemates will be richer than others,” Biggie said.

In the game of luck, the 22 housemates were asked to stand behind each of the stools while the 23rd envelope was said to be special.

Biggie explained the the Abeg Naira is a welcome gift to the housemates and by next week, the contestants will use their currency to get admitted into the gym and weekend parties.

For the 23rd envelope, Biggie said the housemates will decide on who gets it. The housemates were given till Friday night to decide on the most-deserving housemate through any means they wish.

Biggie also noted that the Head of House, Peace, and her deputy, Yousef, are not eligible to win the 23rd envelope.

The family of Nnamdi Kanu in London made the claim according to a report by Reuters.

 

Nnamdi Kanu
Nnamdi Kanu
 
It has been revealed that the United Kingdom has abandoned Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra in DSS detention..
 
The family of Nnamdi Kanu in London made the claim according to a report by Reuters.
 
Kanu holds British and Nigerian citizenship.
 
Also, lawyers for the family in UK backed the claim of abandonment on Thursday.
 
Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group that campaigns for part of southeastern Nigeria to secede, was kidnapped back to Nigeria in June after years on the run abroad.
 
He is being held pending a treason trial.
 
Bindmans, a London law firm, said it had sent a pre-action letter to British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on behalf of Kanu’s family, challenging Britain’s failure to assist him.
 
A junior Foreign Office minister had said last week that Britain stood ready to provide consular assistance to Kanu and had requested consular access from the Nigerian government.
 
However, Bindmans said no consular visit had taken place.
 
“Despite the family’s concern that he has been subject to torture and is being denied essential medical treatment, the British High Commission have so far failed to visit him in detention,” it said in a statement.
 
Kanu was supposed to appear in court in Abuja on Monday but the authorities failed to produce him, citing logistical issues.
 
His trial was adjourned until October.
 
Nigeria has not revealed the circumstances of Kanu’s detention.
 
His Nigerian lawyer has accused authorities in Kenya of detaining and mistreating him before handing him over to Nigeria.
 
Kenya has denied involvement.
 
Bindmans said Kanu might have been the subject of extraordinary rendition from Kenya to Nigeria, an unlawful practice.
 
The Foreign Office in London did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
 
Kanu faces 11 counts including treason, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms.
 
IPOB wants a swathe of the southeast to split from Nigeria.
 
The region tried to secede in 1967 under the name Republic of Biafra, triggering a three-year civil war in which more than a million people died, mostly of starvation.

Hushpuppi, Abba Kyari

An arrest warrant has been issued by a U.S court for Abba Kyari, Nigeria’s police commissioner, according to Peoples Gazette.

Otis Wright of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to track down Mr Kyari and produce him in the United States for his role in a multi-million dollar fraud perpetrated by Ramon ‘Hushpuppi’ Abbas, a notorious Nigerian fraudster.

Mr Abbas was arrested in Dubai last June and he pleaded guilty to fraud in the U.S. this week. The FBI said Messrs Abbas and Kyari have been friends and were both involved in a conspiracy to launder money.

Mr Kyari was also indicted of receiving bribes from Mr Abbas to arrest a member of the syndicate in Nigeria.

American prosecutors first sought a court warrant to arrest Mr Kyari on February 12, 2021, according to court documents seen by The Gazette. Another warrant was requested on April 29, 2021.

Judge Wright’s permission for the FBI to arrest Mr Kyari and hold him in U.S. custody was unsealed on July 26.

Mr Kyari in a hurried statement denied allegations of conspiracy with Hushpuppi, saying he only met him two years ago and did not benefit financially from the fraudster.

It was not immediately clear whether or not an extradition request has been filed for Mr Kyari. Attorney-General Abubakar Malami did not immediately return a request seeking comments from The Gazette.

Hushpuppi, Associates Used Crime Proceeds To Acquire Foreign Citizenship — US

Hushpuppi, Associates Used Crime Proceeds To Acquire Foreign Citizenship — US

This was contained in a statement released on Wednesday by the court titled, ‘Six Indicted in International Scheme to Defraud Qatari School Founder and then Launder over $1 Million in Illicit Proceeds’.

 

Hushpuppi

Reports by SaharaReporters has shown that the United States Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California has said that Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, and his co-conspirator used crime proceeds to acquire a St. Christopher and Nevis citizenship.

St. Christopher and Nevis is a dual-island nation situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It is known for beautiful mountains and beaches, according to Wikipedia.

This was contained in a statement released on Wednesday by the court titled, ‘Six Indicted in International Scheme to Defraud Qatari School Founder and then Launder over $1 Million in Illicit Proceeds’.

The court also said Hushpuppi, who pleaded guilty to various charges, including money laundering, wire fraud, and felony, among others, used Abba Kyari, a leader of the Inspector-General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team, to jail one of his associates named Chibuzo Vincent.

Kyari, however, explained in a Facebook post that Hushpuppi called his office and reported a death threat from someone about two years ago.

The cop said the suspect, Vincent, was arrested but later released after investigations revealed that “they are long time friends who have money issues between them”.

Kyari also said he did not receive any money from Hushpuppi.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that Hushpuppi allegedly conspired with five others — including Vincent — to defraud a businessperson in Qatar by claiming to be consultants and bankers who could facilitate a loan to finance the construction of a school, according to the indictment by the court.

Hushpuppi’s associates include 40-year-old Vincent from Nigeria; and 28-year-old Abdulrahman Juma from Kenya. Others are Yusuf Anifowoshe, 26; Rukayat Fashola, 28; and Bolatito Agbabiaka, 34 — all Nigerian.

“Approximately $230,000 of the stolen funds allegedly were used to purchase a Richard Mille RM11-03 watch, which was hand-delivered to Abbas in Dubai and subsequently appeared in Hushpuppi’s social media posts. Other illicit proceeds from the scheme were allegedly converted into cashier’s checks, including $50,000 in checks that were used by Abbas and a co-conspirator to fraudulently acquire a St. Christopher and Nevis citizenship, as well as a passport for Abbas obtained by creating a false marriage certificate and then bribing a government official in St. Kitts,” the statement partly read.

Acting United States Attorney, Tracy Wilkison, said, “Mr. Abbas, who played a significant role in the scheme, funded his luxurious lifestyle by laundering illicit proceeds generated by con artists who use increasingly sophisticated means. In conjunction with our law enforcement partners, we will identify and prosecute perpetrators of business email compromise scams, which is a massive and growing international crime problem.”

Also, Kristi Johnson, the Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office, described Hushpuppi as one of “the most high-profile money launderers in the world”.

“His celebrity status and ability to make connections seeped into legitimate organizations and led to several spin-off schemes in the U.S. and abroad. Today’s announcement deals a crucial blow to this international network and hopefully serves as a warning to potential victims targeted with this type of theft,”
 Johnson added.

In a plea agreement document sighted by The PUNCH on Wednesday, Hushpuppi pleaded guilty as charged.

The document was signed by Hushpuppi; his lawyer, Loius Shapiro; and Acting United States Attorney, Tracy Wilkison, among others.

It stated that Hushpuppi risks “20 years’ imprisonment; a three-year period of supervised release; a fine of $500,000 or twice the gross gain or gross loss resulting from the offence.”

The document, however, did not mention the date of the plea hearing.

Hushpuppi is known to have flaunted his luxury lifestyle in private jets with exotic wines and expensive wristwatches. His social media handles were replete with photos of his ostentatious lifestyle before his arrest last year June in Dubai after which he was extradited to the US where he is being prosecuted for money laundering and internet fraud-related charges.
