This is a campaign I have launched Hashtag I Stand with Dcp Abba Kyari [#ISTANDWITHDCPABBAKYARI]

Dcp Abba Kyari remain the toast of a lot of us who know him one on one. In my over 22 years on the crime beat, I have never seen, wrote or heard of any police officer with the kind of achievements recorded by Dcp Abba kyari, He is passionate about policing, this is a man who leads by example.

The allegation involving Dcp Abba kyari and Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi is perceived to be orchestrated by enemies within, who are bent to bring down the good name of Dcp abba kyari or by families of those who abba kyari has apprehended in his line of duty are those sponsoring various social media attack.

 He would always remain a super cop. His prowess in crime fighting is second to none, he is the nation’s pride of what a police officer should be, then why should we condemn and tarnish the image of a man who has put his life on the line for the nation on social media without waiting for the facts to be unrivalled.

 This is just to mention a few of Dcp Abba Kyari achievements

Let’s not forget in hurry, Dcp Abba led a crack police team to bust a most wanted Taraba kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Wadume.

Wadume was the ‘high profile’ kidnapping suspect arrested by the police on August 6, 2019. He was being driven to Jalingo by the police team when soldiers opened fire on them along Ibi-Wukari Road, killing three police officers and a civilian.

Kyari, who led the Inspector General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team also led his crack team to arrest notorious billionaire kidnapper, Evans. After the arrest, Kyari said the kidnapper offered his teams $2million if he could keep quiet and let him go and that he offered to provide the cash in 48 hours.

On Tuesday 2 July 2019 precisely, Abba Kyari’s team successfully rescued the District Head of Daura, Alhaji Musa Umar-Uba who was abducted on 1 May in his home town Daura, Katsina State by some unknown gun men.

He led a team which arrested the killers of former Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) Air Marshal Alex Badeh ‘rtd’ along Keffi-Gitata Kaduna Road, as well as the arrest of the most wanted Boko-Haram Commander, Umar Abdulmalik and eight of his terrorists gang members.

Kyari also led his team to arrest 22 Boko-Haram terrorist gang members responsible for the kidnap of the Chibok School girls in 2014 and also responsible for series of suicide bombings/several attacks and ambush against security Agents in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States.

His team captured the most deadly kidnapper in the history of Nigeria, Henry Chibueze aka “Vampire” in Owerri, Imo State and his gang members and also arrested the deadly Offa bank robbers that invaded Offa town, Kwara State and robbed five commercial banks, among others.

With these achievements, Dcp Abba Kyari remains a hero. He was drafted to Imo State recently when IPOB’s menace heightened and he went to Imo and calmed the situation.

Kyari has defended himself, saying he never collected money from Hushpuppi. He narrated his own side of the story and said Hushpuppi called his office about  two years ago that somebody in Nigeria seriously threatened to kill his family here in Nigeria and that he sent the person’s phone number and pleaded that the police took action before the person attacked his family.

“We traced and arrested the Suspect and after investigations we discovered there wasn’t an actual threat to anyone’s life and they are longtime friends who have money issues between them hence we released the Suspect on bail to go and he was not taken to any jail.

“Nobody demanded for a kobo from Abbas Hushpuppi. Our focus was to save people’s lives that were purported to have been threatened.

“Later, he saw some of my Native Clothes and Caps on my social media page and he said he likes them and he was connected to the person selling the clothes and he sent about N300k directly to the person’s account. The Native Clothes and Caps (5 sets) were brought to our office and He sent somebody to Collect them in our office,” he explained.

According to him, “Nobody demanded any money from Abbas Hushpuppi and nobody collected any money from him. We responded to a distress call he made on threat to his family and released the Suspect when we discovered there was no life threat from the Suspect. This is the true story. Vincent is alive, he can be contacted.

“For those who are celebrating that this is an indictment on us and mentioning some fictitious huge amount, they will be disappointed once again as our hands are clean and our record of Service for 2 decades is open for everybody to see.
