About Abba Kyari’s case and the FBI, the Coalition of Northern Groups has kicked against the suspension of beleaguered Deputy Commissioner of Police who was indicted by a US court in an international fraud case, of the internet fraudster Gucci Master ‘Hushpuppi’.
Remember that Kyari was dismissed by the Police Service Commission on August 1 after being charged with fraud in connection with popular socialite Ramon Abbas, widely called Hushpuppi.
Abdulazeez Sulaiman, a spokesman for the Coalition of Civil Society Organizations and Non-Governmental Organizations, argued that both the Nigerian police and the FBI violated Kyari’s fundamental rights by not allowing him to be heard before initiating the hurried moves against him.
The organization demanded that the suspension be reviewed immediately and that the continuing FBI probe be handed to the Nigerian Intelligence Agency.
