Hushpuppi: Abba Kyari’s brother deletes all photos on Instagram page
Usman Kyari, younger brother to the embattled Deputy Commissioner of police (DCP), Abba Kyari, has deleted all posts on his Instagram page following an alleged involvement of his elder brother, ‘super cop’ in a fraud case with Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
A check on his Usman’s Instagram page showed that there was not a single photo or even video left. Usman’s IG page used to be filled with examples of luxury living such as a fleet of cars and photos of him clad in fine attires.
“No posts yet. When Usman Kyari posts, you’ll see their photos and videos here,” a terse note on the page read.
Usman’s Instastories, which he posted on Friday defending his brother and citing the position of ex-minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, was also missing.
WITHIN NIGERIA had 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.
According to a court document released by the United States Department of Justice on Wednesday, titled: ‘Six Indicted in International Scheme to Defraud Qatari School Founder and then Launder over $1 Million in Illicit Proceeds’, Kyari was said to have been bribed to arrest one Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, 40, in Nigeria, who created bogus documents and arranged for the creation of a fake bank website and phone banking line to support the defrauding of a business person trying to provide $1.1m for the funding of a school in Qatar.
Allegation which Kyari has denied, stating that he did not demand any money from Hushpuppi, only introduced the accused to a cloth seller whom Hushpuppi paid about N300,000.
The ‘super cop’ said he never demanded for a dime from Hushpuppi, admitting his focus was to save people’s lives that were purported to have been threatened.
Report, which prompted the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, to order a review of the information on Kyari.
Below are some of the photos he deleted:
