A source cited by Vanguard, noted that the decision of the PSC to return the investigative panel report was backed by an advice from the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, whose office the commission reverted the panel’s report to after receiving it from IGP Usman Alkali.

To meet up with its scheduled plenary meeting where matters of discipline and other infractions against several police officers will be deliberated upon and decisions taken, the PSC was said to have given the Force headquarters 14 days within which to conclude the new review and revert to the commission.

A Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal complaint lodged at the United States District Court in California had listed Hushpuppi and Kyari among six suspects indicted in the international fraud conspiracy.

The other suspects include AbdulRahman  Juma (Abdul); Vincent Kelly Chibuzo (Kelly); Rukayat Motunrayo Fashola (Morayo); and Bolatito Tawakalitu Agbabiaka (Bolamide).

Kyari was subsequently suspended while awaiting completion of investigation into the matter.

Huspuppi however has been noted would be sentenced on Valentine’s day, February 14, after pleading guilty to all charges.
