News Flash: Abba Kyari has filed a lawsuit against the FG
According to the information acquired, Kyari is seeking a court order to be released from jail in a lawsuit filed under the case number FHC/ABJ/CS/182/22.
As you may recall, Kyari was suspended on August 1, 2021, due to his association with an Internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, also known by his stage name Hushpupp.
It has been alleged that the suspended Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team took a bribe from Hushpuppi, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
He is currently being held by NDLEA agents on suspicion of being involved in the trafficking of hard drugs and being a member of an international drug cartel, among other things.
Abba Kyari takes the Federal Government to court and asks for bail on medical grounds
Mrs P. O. Ikenna, the contentious former director of the Police Intelligence Response Team, IRT, claimed that he was being held “on the basis of a false charge that had been leveled against him” in an ex-parte motion filed through his counsel.
When the case was called up, however, Justice Inyang Ekwo noted that the complaint contained some allegations that would necessitate the Federal Government’s response.
Following a thorough examination of the Applicant’s process and the averments in support thereof, the Judge reached the conclusion that the Respondent should be served with a notice of intent to proceed.
In an attempt to persuade the court to allow Kyari’s release on the grounds that “his health has worsened severely,” my counsel for the Applicant was unsuccessful.
The case was continued until February 24 for hearing, with Justice Ekwo ordering that all appropriate processes be served on the Federal Government, which was identified as the sole Respondent.

ABOUT ABBA KYARI
” Hushpuppi” Ramon Abbas “Gucci King” Kyari was born on March 17, 1975, in Lagos, Nigeria, and is a Nigerian police officer who is currently on administrative leave and suspended from all police duties pending the outcome of an internal investigation into his alleged connection with Gucci King, the popular alleged fraudster Ramon Abbas “Hushpuppi.” The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) is one of his professional organizations (IACP). Immediately before to his appointment as IGP-IRT, he worked as a unit Commander in one of the PMF bases in Lagos, before being promoted and moved to serve as the Officer-in-Charge of the now defunct SARS.
Participation in the Hushpuppi Project
On July 29, 2021, infamous Nigerian fraudster Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi, who is currently facing charges of money laundering brought against him by the United States Government, implicated DCP Abba Kyari as a participant in an international scheme to defraud the founder of a Qatari school and then launder more than $1.1 million in illicit proceeds, according to the United States Government.
This is described in detail in the court record, which is 69 pages long. A quarrel among members of the crime syndicate allegedly motivated one Vincent to contact the victim on his behalf and claim that Abbas and Juma (who was also a fraudster) were involved in fraud. Following this, Abbas is said to have arranged for Vincent to be imprisoned in Nigeria by DCP Abba Kyari. Alhaji Abba Kyari is said to have sent Abbas account information into which he could put payment for Vincent’s arrest and imprisonment, according to the affidavit.
According to a report in the Peoples Gazette, Abba Kyari traveled to Dubai on the invitation of Hushpuppi and was treated to a nice time, which included airport pickup, luxury hotel accommodations, and a city tour, among other things.
Kyari, on the other hand, has denied the serious claims brought against him, which he has done so using his verified Instagram and Facebook pages. According to a report by the Peoples Gazette, the United States Department of Justice has issued a warrant for Kyari’s arrest and has ordered his extradition from the country. The IGP, on the other hand, placed him on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigative committee’s report.
