Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has averred that the allegations of fraud levelled against popular Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari are part of a deep conspiracy to destroy the career of the DCP.
DCP Abba Kyari, widely celebrated for his heroics against criminals and bandits was on Thursday alleged to have benefited from a $1.1 million fraud involving a Qatari School Owner and Abbas Hushpuppi.
But Kyari has denied ever receiving a kobo from the money laundering kingpin. He said he only got to know Hushpuppi after he made a distress call to the police.
Reacting to the matter, which has become the centre of discussion nationwide, Fani-Kayode said it is a mere conspiracy to destroy Kyari’s career and the excellent service he has offered to Nigeria.
He said this in a post on his Twitter handle, insisting that unless he sees a prove he will never believe the lies against Abba Kyari except there are strong evidence.
“This is a deep conspiracy to destroy his career and it will not work,” he wrote.
“A super cop that has risked his life protecting us from kidnappers, murderers & terrorists all these years; that has arrested more criminals than any other is accused of taking bribes from a yahoo boy, scammer all the way from America and we are expected to believe it? Not me.
“Allegations are a dime a dozen and an indictment does not amount to a conviction: show me the evidence or keep your mouth shut forever.
“Abba is one of the bravest, brightest and best cops in Nigeria and I will not believe these crazy allegations levelled against him or condemn him unless I see any evidence to the contrary.
“He has proved himself over and over again when it comes to catching criminals and I do not believe that he is one himself. If he were he would not have such an excellent record in combating crime.
“I urge Abba to continue the good work he has been doing and not allow himself to be distracted by his numerous detractors.”
