A picture of embattled deputy commissioner of police, Abba Kyari, standing by the signpost of a road named after him in Borno State, has emerged.
It was reported that the road was named after Kyari by the current state governor, Banagana Zulum, to honour the police detective, who hails from the state.
Kyari is regarded as one of the best detectives in the country.
However, a court in the United States issued a warrant of arrest for him, over his indictment in the case concerning serial fraudster, Ramon Olurunwa Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
Court document detailed how Hushpuppi paid Kyari to arrest and detain Chibuzo Vincent, a colleague of his, with whom he had a dispute following a fraudulent business deal with a Qatari businessman.
According to the court document reviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Kyari did imprison Vincent and promised Hushpuppi that he would not be bailed.
“After Kyari arrested Chibuzo, he sent photographs of Chibuzo in custody and later told Abbas that he would not allow Chibuzo’s girlfriend to pay money to get Chibuzo out of the custody as he would have done for ‘normal arrest,’” the document said.
However, the police officer has since denied the allegations which the Nigeria Police Force said are being reviewed.
