Kyari also known as the “super cop” shortly after the stories surfaced, denied involvement in what a U.S. indictment describes as an elaborate scheme to defraud a Qatari businessperson of more than $1 million, masterminded by a celebrity fraudster known as “Hushpuppi” – his younger brother Usman hopes to pray the trial away.
Usman who has now deleted all the images on his Instagram is known for flaunting wealth, constantly posting and posing along with fleet of expensive cars in display .
The sibling to the embattled Police Officer wrote on his Instagram stories, “The storm of the lord shall pursue and overtake all powers. DCP Abba Kyari from now on all your enemies will start to fight themselves into the camp of your enemies in the MIGHTY NAME OF ALLAH……. In Allah’s mighty and matchless name” one of the story reads.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said an arrest warrant against Kyari had been issued in the United States. In his Facebook post, Kyari denied taking money from Hushpuppi and gave a different account of his dealings with the fraudster but Usman, continued, “for the enemies of Abba Kyari, God will judge you”.
Kyari made the headlines after Hushpupi whose real name is Ramon Abbas, alleged that he bribed him to arrest a co-fraudster.
Hushpuppi, whose real name is Ramon Abbas and who built up a large social media following in Nigeria with posts detailing his lavish lifestyle, was extradited from Dubai to the United States in July 2020 to face criminal charges.
He has been in U.S. custody in Los Angeles ever since, and the Attorney’s Office announced this week that he had pleaded guilty to charges relating to schemes that cumulatively caused more than $24 million in losses to their victims.
