The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for full forensic investigation into reports the United States (US) Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has linked the head of Inspector General of Police (IGP) Intelligence Response Team, DCP Abba Kyari, to international serial fraudster, Abbas Ramon, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
A court in the United States where Hushpuppi is standing trial for cybercrime and money laundering, had linked Kyari to some alleged unethical monetary dealings with Huspuppi and called for the police officer’s arrest and prosecution.
In a statement on Thursday by spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party described the allegation against Kyari as worrisome, disturbing and a stain on the integrity of the nation.
The statement said: “Our party demands that the APC administration should not sweep this matter under the carpet given the manifest rapport between Kyari and some top APC leaders.
“We urge President Buhari not to “ease out” this case of corruption but should immediately restore the integrity and image of our nation by allowing for a forensic investigation on the suspect.
“Moreover, if this Abba Kyari matter is not well handled, it will be a permanent stain on the reputation of our police, security system and our nation at large”.
The PDP charged President Buhari to direct the Inspector General of Police to “take in” Abba Kyari for questioning and if found culpable handed over to the FBI.
