“No evidence Kyari laundered money for Hushpuppi” – AG Malami

Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, has declared that there is no evidence of money laundering against the suspended Commander of the Police Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari.

This is coming after Malami had directed the police to launch a probe against Kyari for allegedly receiving 33 proceeds of crime.

In a new twist, however, the justice Minister has issued a fresh legal advice saying there was no evidence to show that money was laundered by the senior police officer, The Punch reported.

In a letter dated February 4, 2022, with reference number, DPPA/LA/814/21, the Minister appeared to have absolved Kyari of any culpability, declaring there was nothing linking the Hushpuppi gang to the officer.

The letter addressed to the IG, read in part, “I am directed to inform you that after a careful study of the said response wherein you stated that ‘the monies have been traced to Zenith Bank account no. 2255416115 belonging to Usman Ibrahim Waziri; Guaranty Trust Bank account no. 0130665392 belonging to Adekoya Sikiru; Zenith Bank account no. 2080537566 belonging to Hussein Ala and other funds went to Sharon Festus. The monies were withdrawn and utilised by the aforementioned account holders and the lady.

“It is our view that the above response has not linked the suspect, DCP Abba Kyari, to the offence of money laundering as the evidence contained in the case diary is not sufficient to indicate or show that the said monies were laundered directly or indirectly by Kyari to disguise their origin, more so that the aforementioned recipients or receivers exonerated him in their statements as having nothing to do with the monies.”
