The full transcript of Abba Kyari’s conversation with Hushpuppi has been revealed by US court documents.
Despite the supercop denial of involvement with the fraudster, court documents prove otherwise.
According to the document, after an earlier discussion with Kyari, Hushpuppi requested for Vincent’s (also known as Chibuzor) contact details, which the latter provided.
Hushpuppi forwarded the contact details to Kyari and on January 15, 2020, Hushpuppi sent an audio recording to Kyari via WhatsApp, stating that he wanted to remind Kyari about what they discussed earlier.
On January 16, 2020, Hushpuppi sent the following threats to Chibuzor: “I dey always tell people to think well before they offend me and make them make sure they fit stand the consequences when the time comes. I wonât say more than that but very soon, very, very soon, the wrath of my hands shall find you and when it does, it will damage you forever. At this point I no get discussion with you, you have committed a crime that wonât be forgiven, that is punishable and you shall receive die (sic) punishment in due time. I swear with my life, you will regret messing with me, you will even wish you died before my hands will touch you.”
Later on, Kyari confirmed the arrest and detention of Vincent Chibuzor to Abbas (Hushpuppi), who requested for an account number to which he will send the bribe meant for Kyari’s team members.
Hushpuppi also pleaded with Kyari to inform his team members to deal with Vincent like an armed robber.
The transcript of their conversation goes thus:
First, Kyari sent a message to Hushpuppi saying, âWe would pick him today or tomorrow.â
Abbas (Hushpuppi) wrote, âI will take care of the team also after they pick him up.â
Kyari confirmed âYes ooo.â
It also stated that on January 20, 2020, Kyari sent biographical, identifying information for Chibuzor to Hushpuppi.
Their conversation goes thus: Abbas (Hushpuppi) confirmed âthat is him sir.â
Kyari stated, âWe have arrested the guy . . . He is in my cell now. This is his picture after we arrested him today.â
After receiving the photograph of Vincent/Chibuzor, Abbas (Hushpuppi) said, âI want him to go through serious beating of his life.â
In response to Kyariâs question about what Chibuzor had done to Abbas (Hushpuppi), Abbas sent Kyari an audio message.
He said: “What he did is, I have one job. The job want to pay me 500, umm, 75,000 dollars [i.e., $575,000]. He went to message the job behind me because I told him to help me make one document for me to give the job. Then he wentâhe has aâI gave him the details.
âThen he went to message the job behind my back and try to divert the money and in this process he tell the job because of the documents he gave me that I gave the job, he tell the job, ‘These document they sent to you before. These people are fake (sic).
â’This moneyâis me who can help you to get it. Come to me leâbring this money you want to pay these people to me. Iâm the only one who can help you,’ and all these things to divert the job for himself.”
After listening to the message, Kyari simply said he understood without requesting other information or evidence relating to Chibuzorâs role in the scheme, or any questions about the nature of the transaction, the document added.
Hushpuppi further said he wanted to pay money to send Chibuzor to jail for a long time, stating âPlease sir I want to spend money to send this boy to jail, let him go for a very long time.â
Kyari responded, âOk bro, I understand I will discuss with my team who arrested him . . . And handling the case. We will do something about it.â
Hushpuppi responded, âLet me know how I can send money to the team sir, let them deal with him like armed robber.â
Kyari responded, âOK I will send their account details to u.â
Hushpuppi further wrote, âHe betrayed me and try (sic) to take food out my mouth, this is great punishable sin,â and Kyari responded, âYeah bro.â
Hushpuppi said, âI want him to suffer for many years.â
Kyari responded, âHahahaha Hahahaha.â
The document stated that about some minutes later, Kyari provided the account information for a bank account at a Nigerian bank, Zenith Bank, in the name of a person other than Kyari himself.
Hushpuppi responded âOk sir, tomorrow by noon.”
This showed that Hushpuppi planned to pay the Nigeria Police Force officers who arrested Chibuzor for that service.
A part of the document stated, âThis was not the only time that Abbas arranged payments with Kyari. On May 20, 2020, Abbas sent Kyari transaction receipts for two transactions from accounts at Nigerian banks (GTBank and Zenith Bank) of a person Abbas knew in the U.A.E.âa person also arrested with Abbas in Abbasâ apartment in the U.A.E. by Dubai Police on June 9, 2020âto the Nigerian bank accounts of another person in Nigeria.
âThe amounts on the transaction receipts totalled 8 million Nigerian Naira, which was approximately $20,600 based on publicly available exchange rate information.â
