Abba Kyari Reacts To Allegations Of Involvement In $1.1 Million Scam

Published

on

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari has denied allegations of conniving with suspected internet fraudster Ramon Abbas, aka Ray Hushpuppi, to arrest a co-fraudster in a whopping $1.1m deal.

US court documents reveal that Hushpuppi reportedly paid off Kyari to arrest one Kelly Chibuzo Vincent with whom he had a dispute.

The two fraudsters had conspired with others to steal more than $1.1 million from a business person attempting to finance the construction of a school for children in Qatar.

A dispute between the duo forced Vincent to contact the victim to redirect proceeds to himself. This prompted Hushpuppi to take him out with a high-ranking law enforcement officer in Nigeria, Abba Kyari.

According to the affidavit, Kyari carried out the request and sent Hushpuppi photographs of an imprisoned Vincent, as well as account details for his payment.

However, Kyari admitted to knowing about the money-related dispute, claiming it was on the basis of the call that Hushppupi’s colleague was arrested.

In a statement released on Thursday, July 29, 2021, Kyari said no money exchanged hands, and he was tricked into arresting Vincent two years ago.

“Abbas who we later came to know as Hushpuppi called our office about 2years ago that somebody in Nigeria Seriously threatened to kill his Family here in Nigeria and he sent the person’s Phone number and pleaded we take action before the Person attacks his family.”

“We traced and arrested the Suspect and after investigations we discovered there wasn’t an actual threat to anyone’s life And they are long time friends who have money issues between them hence we released the Suspect on bail to go and he was not taken to any jail.”

“Nobody demanded for a kobo from Abbas Hushpuppi. Our focus was to Save people’s lives that were purported to have been threatened.”

Kyari continued: “Later, he saw some of my Native Clothes and Caps on my social media page and he said he likes them and he was connected to the person selling the clothes and he sent about N300k directly to the person’s account. The Native Clothes and Caps (5 sets) were brought to our office and He sent somebody to Collect them in our office. Nobody demanded any money from Abbas Hushpuppi and nobody collected any money from him.”

“We responded to a distress call he made on threat to his family and released the Suspect when we discovered there was no life threat from the Suspect.”

“This is the true story. Vincent is alive, he can be contacted.“

“For those who are celebrating that this is an indictment on us and mentioning some fictitious Big Money, they will be disappointed once again as our hands are clean and our record of Service for 2 decades is open for everybody to see. They will continue seeing us serving our father land and we will continue responding to all distress calls from all Nigerians provided they are life threatening.”

“For Good Nigerians who appreciate our Service please don’t worry as our hands are clean and they should please not respond to those celebrating and creating many false Narratives without any Evidence. We are used to such types of people and false newsmakers and distributors.”

We May Take Legal Action Against T’di Woman For Wasting Our Resources : Police

Published

on

The Ghana Police Service has betokened that it is likely to take legal action against the woman who faked her pregnancy and kidnapping in Takoradi, Josephine Mensah Panyin Simson.

The police might take this action because the woman led them (the entire security service) on a meaningless chase over a feigned abduction and pregnancy case, she wasted their resources.

Acting Director-General in charge of Public Affairs at the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori made these statements in an interview on Accra based Citi FM.

However, said the woman’s prosecution might happen soon.

“We are looking at the development closely and there is a greater possibility that she might appear before the court because she manufactured all these things with a figment of her own imagination and put the police into business.

And we deployed a 40-member search team and even when we located her through public assistance, we took her to the hospital with policemen providing security and where she claimed to have attended antenatal clinics, it turned out to be false.

We went in for a second opinion and got a team of doctors to work on her.

The police also placed an Assistant Commissioner of Police who is a criminal phycologist at her disposal who travelled from Accra to Takoradi and our Head of Counselling Department also went to Takoradi to assess her and offer assistance.

So if you quantify all these things, it is a big investment, but the police will continue to offer good support to our people and offer assistance.”

PL: Arsenal Beat Rivals Tottenham Hotspurs 3-1 With Brilliant First-Half Performance

Published

on

The north London bragging rights belong to Arsenal as they blew Tottenham away in the first half to seal a 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal went in at half time 3-0 up thanks to goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka.

It was a fine performance from Arsenal but it’s Aubameyang’s goal that would have given fans the most pleasure.

After slotting Smith Rowe’s pull back home, the Arsenal captain celebrated on his knees in front of the travelling Spurs faithful, much like when Thierry Henry did at Highbury after scoring against Spurs in November 2002.

Henry was actually in attendance at the north London derby, which saw Heung-min Son bag a consolation goal for Spurs late in the second half.

Both sides are in a difficult period but Arsenal played like the superior team because they simply wanted it more.

Smith Rowe gave them a deserved lead on 11 minutes as he fired in Saka’s intelligent low cross.

Arsenal continued to apply the pressure and their lead was doubled on 27 minutes. Smith Rowe turned provider this time as he cut it back to Aubameyang, who put the ball past Hugo Lloris with his left peg.

Aubameyang’s knee slide will have irked the Spurs fans hugely but not as much as what happened on 36 minutes as Saka struck with his right foot on the counter-attack – the goal leading to some Spurs fans leaving the ground before half time.

The leavers missed an improved performance by their side in the second half with Harry Kane perhaps unlucky not to get a penalty after being clipped by Ben White.

Spurs did have something to show for their efforts with Son getting on the end of a low cross from the left, while an acrobatic save from Aaron Ramsdale prevented Lucas Moura from netting and making it a grandstand finish.

But Arsenal were more than good value for the win which takes them above Spurs in the Premier League less than a month after the two sides were at opposite ends of the table.

Cristiano Ronaldo ‘Eyeing Coaching Role At Man Utd Once He Hangs Up His Boots At Old Trafford’

Published

Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly eyeing a coaching role at Manchester United once he hangs up his boots at Old Trafford.’

Ronaldo signed a two-year deal with an option for a third year when he rejoined United from Juventus last month and wants to carry on playing for as long as possible.

As reported by The Sun, Ronaldo wants to subsequently continue his association with United by becoming part of the coaching staff.

Since rejoining the club, Ronaldo has scored four goals in three appearances.

The 36-year-old has a strong connection with United having enjoyed much success during his initial spell at the club from 2003 to 2009.

During that time Ronaldo won the Champions League, three Premier League titles, the FA Cup, and two League Cups.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently stated that he feels Ronaldo could continue playing until he’s 40 years old.

‘I wouldn’t be surprised if he still played when he was 40, not at all, because of the way he looks after himself.

‘That’s the key to it – and of course some genes. There must be some genes as well, some DNA in there.

‘He has put every single ounce of energy and effort into becoming the player he is and has been, so he deserves every single little plaudit that he gets for his physical state.

‘What’s more impressive is when you have achieved as much as he has, he’s still as hungry. His mentality is still absolutely spot-on and that’s a desire from inside that he’s going to keep going until his head says, “no, I’ve given everything now”.

‘Hopefully, it will last a few more years. Linford Christie (who won the Olympic 100m aged 32 in 1992) was quite an age when he won his gold as well, so age is never a problem.’
