A resident of Borno state has said that Nigeria’s Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari who is being investigated for the extent of his connection with suspected fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, alias Hushpuppi, sells cars he seizes from kidnappers and armed robbers in Maiduguri, the state capital.
According to a report by Sahara Reporters, the resident in a private message to a Nigerian academic and media scholar, Farooq Kperogi also claimed Kyari has enriched himself through proceeds of corruption.
According to the anonymous resident, Kyari is not a millionaire but a billionaire, who has more than 20 properties in a posh area in his state, Borno.
“Na wa o. This is what someone from Maiduguri sent to my inbox in response to my column. It is unedited and unverified but interesting nonetheless: ‘Everyone in Maiduguri knew that Kyari is extremely rich, he gives out cars, monies and sells those he seized from the kidnappers and armed robbers at some selected car stands in Maiduguri and Abuja, as at now he’s building a big plaza along Gombole Road near Giwa Barracks and bought the neighbouring plaza.
‘There’s sign post he stood and snapped a picture where street was name after him, that’s New GRA or Bama GRA he has more 20 properties there!
‘You can independently find out from those who knows him, he has properties to his named in lagos, abuja etc, I call him super rich, he surpasses IGP Kamseleem.
‘What those kidnappers were saying is very true, I developed interest on what he’s doing when I read Evans interview where he said what Abba and his team took from his house was far beyond what they declared….he’s not a millionaire but billionaire.
‘He moves in convoys when in Maiduguri and brazenly go round his properties.’”
