In the wake of the arrest warrant issued by a United States’ court for the arrest of DCP Abba Kyari for his involvement with convicted fraudster, Abbas Hushpuppi Ramon, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode has come out to defend the embattled cop.
Fani-Kayode was seen on his Twitter handle describing Kyari as a good cop whose antecedents have won him many well deserved accolades.
Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister and politician who has recently been going around Nigeria for reasons many believe are interests in the 2023 general elections, also blamed Nigerians for once again taking sides with the white man against their very own.
The Inspector General of Police, Alkali Baba Usman has since ordered an investigation into the allegations his DCP has been charged with.
Fani-Kayode said, “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 & we are expected to believe it? Not me!”
“Abba is one of the bravest cops in Nigeria & I will not believe these allegations levelled against him or condemn him unless I see any evidence to the contrary. He has proved himself 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. Nigerians seem to take delight in believing & assuming the worse about their best.That is part of our problem: we love & celebrate the evil but we despise & seek to pull down the righteous & good.”
“As far as I am concerned there are as many crooked, bent & killer cops all over the world as there are good ones & America has its fair share of both.The only people that ought to take pleasure in reading this crap about Abba are the kidnappers and terrorists in our country.”
“Allegations are a dime a dozen & an indictment is not a conviction. Show me the evidence or keep your mouth shut. I urge Abba to continue the good work he has been doing & not allow himself to be distracted by his numerous detractors.This is a conspiracy to destroy his career.”
