Suspended former Head of the Intelligence Response Team, DCP Abba Kyari, has deleted his latest Facebook post just as the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, received the report of the Special Investigation Panel on the indictment of the deputy police commissioner in a $1.1m Internet scam allegedly carried out by an Instagram influencer, Abbas Ramon aka Hushpuppi and four others.
Kyari had on Thursday resumed on social media after a three-week break. His last Facebook post was on August 4, 2021, which he had deleted almost immediately and disappeared from the Blueville.
However, the Borno State indigene took to his verified Facebook page with over 450,000 followers on Thursday.
Kyari shared a 21-second hilarious TikTok video posted by one Sanda Tobacco wherein a cart pusher was videoed displaying some roller skating skills while the videographer laughingly said the cart pusher “is very crazy wallahi!”.

DCP Abba Kyari, the suspended former Head of the Intelligence Response Team, deleted his latest Facebook post just as the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, received the report of the Special Investigation Panel on the indictment of the deputy police commissioner in a $1.1 million Internet scam allegedly carried out by Instagram influencer Abbas Ramon aka Hushpuppi and four others.
Kyari returned to social media on Thursday after a three-week hiatus. On August 4, 2021, he made his last Facebook post, which he quickly deleted before disappearing from Blueville.
On Thursday, though, the Borno State native took to his verified Facebook profile, which has over 450,000 followers
Kyari uploaded a 21-second TikTok video shared by Sanda Tobacco in which a cart pusher was videoed demonstrating some roller skating skills, with the videographer laughingly exclaiming, “He’s extremely crazy wallahi!”
However, as of the time of reporting this report, the post was no longer visible on his page.
Remember that Special Agent Andrew Innocenti of the Federal Bureau of Investigation claimed that Hushpuppi hired Kyari after a “co-conspirator,” Chibuzo Vincent, reportedly threatened to expose the alleged $1.1 million fraud against a Qatari client.
Innocenti, who said he listened in on Kyari and Hushpuppi’s phone calls and WhatsApp exchanges, also claimed that the latter paid the police officer N8 million ($20,600) for the arrest and imprisonment of Vincent. On July 29, 2021, Kyari used Facebook to document his denial of the claims, but he later erased the message after altering it for roughly 12 times.
The Special Investigation Panel, led by Deputy Inspector-General of Police in Charge of the Force Criminal Investigations Department, Joseph Egbunike, was established by the IGP on August 2, 2021, to investigate the claims.
On Thursday, Egbunike presented his findings, which he described as “the result of a meticulous, transparent, and exhaustive research procedure.”
He said the report included the probe’s case file, evidence and findings, as well as testimonials from Kyari and other people and groups involved in the issue. The report is scheduled to be forwarded to the Police Service Commission, which has also established an in-house team to examine records linked to Kyari’s FBI indictment.
According to Anything celebrity, the PSC’s Commissioner in Charge of Media, Austin Braimoh, “assured Nigerians that justice will be served and that no one will teleguide the commission.”
