Fani-Kayode defends Abba Kyari after his indictment in the Hushpuppi fraud case
Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has defended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari after he was indicted by the United States government in the Ramon Olorunwa Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi fraud case.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that the United States Department of Justice had said ongoing investigations showed that Hushpuppi allegedly bribed Kyari to arrest one Kelly Chibuzo Vincent, one of his accomplices in Nigeria.
Throwing his weight behind the indicted ‘super cop’, Fani-Kayode stated that Kyari is a super cop that has risked his life protecting Nigerians from murderers and terrorist, and that he won’t condemn him, unless he sees any evidence to the contrary.
Fani-Kayode made this known via his Instagram handle after sharing photos of the DCP, he wrote; “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 & 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 & 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”
