Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has come out to defend the DCP Abba Kyari, saying he would come out clean from the allegations of fraud levelled against him by a notorious fraudster, Abbas Ramoni, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
DCP Abba Kyari, is a widely celebrated cop for his was on Thursday alleged to have benefited from a fraud committed by Hushpuppi.
A U.S court has ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, to immediately arrest and detain DCP Abba Kyari for allegedly benefiting from the proceeds of $1.1 million fraud involving a Qatari School Owner and Hushpuppi.
Though Kyari has denied the allegation against him, insisting that he never collected any money from Hushpuppi, that he only arrested Vincent because Hushpuppi alleged that he threatened his family.
Femi Fani-Kayode while defending said that the accusation against Kyari is mere conspiracy to destroy his career and the excellent service he has offered to Nigeria.
In a post he made on his social media handle, Kayode said:
“A super cop that has risked his life protecting us from kidnappers, murderers & terrorists all these years; that has arrested more criminals than any other is accused of taking bribes from a yahoo boy, scammer all the way from America and we are expected to believe it? Not me
“Abba is one of the bravest, brightest and best cops in Nigeria and I will not believe these crazy allegations levelled against him or condemn him unless I see any evidence to the contrary.”
“He has proved himself over and over again when it comes to catching criminals and I do not believe that he is one himself. If he were he would not have such an excellent record in combating crime.”
“Nigerians seem to take delight in believing and assuming the worse about their best. That is part of our problem: we love and celebrate the evil but we despise, hate and seek to pull down the righteous and good.
“As far as I am concerned there are as many crooked, bent and killer cops all over the world as there are good ones. America has its fair share of both. The only people that ought to take pleasure in reading this crap about Abba are the kidnappers and terrorists in our country.
“Allegations are a dime a dozen and an indictment does not amount to a conviction: show me the evidence or keep your mouth shut forever.”
“I urge Abba to continue the good work he has been doing and not allow himself to be distracted by his numerous detractors.
“This is a deep conspiracy to destroy his career and it will not work.”
