‘My hands are clean’, DCP Abba Kyari reacts to Huspuppi bribe allegation

Abba Kyari, a deputy commissioner of police (DCP), has denied receiving money from Hushpuppi, the embattled Nigerian socialite.

According to US court documents, Huspuppi had alleged that he bribed Abba Kyari to arrest a co-fraudster.

Court officials said during interrogation, the Instagram celebrity disclosed that he bribed Kyari to arrest and jail one of his rivals in Nigeria after a dispute over a $1.1 million scam on Qatari businesspeople.

But in reaction on Thursday morning, Kyari said he never demanded money from Hushpuppi, while stressing that “my hands are clean”.

“Nobody demanded any money from Abbas Hushpuppi and nobody collected any money from him,” he wrote.

“We responded to a distress call he made on the threat to his family and released the Suspect when we discovered there was no life threat from the Suspect. This is the true story. Vincent is alive, he can be contacted.

“For those celebrating that this is an indictment on us and mentioning some fictitious big money, they will be disappointed again as our hands are clean and our record of service for 2 decades is open for everybody to see.”
