Arrested Nigerian Instagram socialite, Ramon Olorunwa Abbass better known as Ray Hushpuppi, in a statement by United States Department of Justice alleged that he bribed Nigeria’s celebrated police officer and head of IGP Intelligence Response Team, Abba Alhaji Kyari, a deputy commissioner of police (DCP), to arrest a co-fraudster, Vincent, in a whopping $1.1m deal, US court documents reveal.
“A federal grand jury indictment unsealed this week alleges an elaborate scheme to steal more than $1.1 million from a business person attempting to finance the construction of a school for children in Qatar – and the subsequent laundering of illicit proceeds through bank accounts around the world,” the statement said.
Vanguard Newspaper reached out to Thom Mrozek, Director of Media Relations, United States Attorney’s Office, to request the full court documents.
