Suspended Deputy Commissioner Of Police, Abba Kyari has denied collecting bribes from Ramon ‘Hushpuppi’ Abbas to detain a gang member Chibuzo Vincent. Kyari in an edited Facebook post claimed the notorious fraudster only sent him receipts of N8 million transaction to help him recover a debt.
Mr Kyari’s comment can be described as a contradiction to his initial defence following his indictment by the United States. Recall that the police chief had initially claimed in a Facebook statement on July 29 that he had no ties to Hushpuppi, saying the con artist only sent him N300,000 to help him purchase native wears.
However, in the now deleted post, screenshot obtained by 9NEWS NIGERIA showed that Mr Kyari edited his Facebook post on Tuesday night and changed his story as he came under widespread public ridicule and police administrative action.
