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
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
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
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
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
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.”
