Police denies recalling Kyari from suspension



Husspuppi sent money for cloths, not bribe, police boss, Kyari, reacts to reports of graft

The Nigerian Police Force on Sunday denied recalling the suspended Head of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari.

Reports had said Kyari who was suspended by the police authorities on August 1 over his indictment for alleged link with the suspended fraudster, Ramon Abass aka Hushpuppi, had been recalled.

The United States District Court for the Central District of California had in July issued a warrant of arrest on Kyari and five others over an alleged link with the suspected fraudster.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) alleged that the police officer collected money from Hushpuppi to detain one of his partners in Nigeria.

In a brief chat with journalists in Abuja, the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, described reports on the police officer’s recall as unfounded.
