Inspector-General of Police Usman Baba has sent the report by a special investigation panel report on deputy commissioner of police Abba Kyari to the Police Service Commission.

The IGP also forwarded the report to the attorney general of the federation and minister of justice Abubakar Malami.

Mr Kyari, who is currently suspended from the Force, was alleged by US authorities to have been involved in a $1.1 million fraud orchestrated by Instagram sensation Ramon Abass aka Hushpuppi.

PUNCH reports that the commission and Malami received the report last week.

Its source was quoted as saying, “The commission and the AGF got the police report last week but there is nothing for us to do at the moment. The IG has directed that Kyari should be queried.”

Chairman of the investigation panel Joseph Egbunike, a deputy inspector general of police, had submitted the report to the IGP at the Force Headquarters, Abuja on August 26.

It was also gathered that the in-house panel set up by the commission to study available documents related to the Kyari’s indictment would soon complete its investigation and submit its findings to the PSC management.

A document from the Federal Bureau of Investigation filed before the United States District Court for the Central District of California had alleged that Hushpuppi contracted Kyari to detain a co-conspirator, Chibuzo Vincent, for threatening to expose the alleged $1.1m fraud committed against a Qatari businessman.

The agency also said Hushpuppi paid $20,600 into a bank account provided by Kyari.
