The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, has issued a directive to internally probe a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, over his alleged involvement in bribery with a social media celebrity, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
This was disclosed in a statement released on Thursday by the Police spokesman, Frank Mba.
Frank broke the news a few hours after earlier reports conveyed that the police will set up a panel to probe Kyari over his alleged relationship with Hushpuppi.
In the statement, The police Boss disclosed that the security operative remains committed to “its pursuit of justice and the strengthening of its professional relationship with the FBI and other international partners.”
He stressed that the news of the further steps on the case will be communicated accordingly to the members of the general public.
Recall that The Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, disclosed earlier how the top detective allegedly connived with Hushpuppi to jail one of his associates after a dispute over a $1.1 million scam on Qatari businesspeople.
The agency also claimed that the embattled Instagram celebrity, Hushpuppi, hosted the crack investigator in Dubai.

Kyari, however, denied the allegation, claiming that his “hands are clean” and he has never involved himself in such a thing before.
The IGP noted further, in the statement, that no stone will be left unturned in figuring out the truth in the matter.
