On social media DCP Abba Kyari is the super cop, or that’s what he is called by his fans and he likes to be called so. With a massive followership of over one hundred thousand, the day Abba Kyari shared my post, Facebook personally sent me a notification that someone with over one hundred thousand followers shared my post. Those who follow Abba Kyari are from all over the country and his friends are even spread all over the country, if you are looking for diversity it is on Abba Kyari’s wall.
Mostly Abba Kyari post his successes at fighting criminals on social media. In places like the US he would have his own police television show. There are many pictures of Abba Kyari that he shared on social media and in one you will see the display of awards given to him all over. He cherishes them enough to spread it all over even though we know how these awards thing are abused by Nigerians. He work on social media didn’t go unnoticed by the National Assembly as one time the House of Representatives personally invited to commend him.
Abba Kyari is not just a friend of who is who, he is a friend to all the celebrities, be it musicians, actors, movers and shakers like Obi Cubana and Facebook and Instagram celebrities, he courts them, he loves them and they show him love, from Davido to Wiz Kid, all personally have visited him in the office a couple of times. But there is a dark side of hanging out with dudes with too much dough in Nigeria, sometimes behind the glitz and glamor is the very crime Abba Kyari is fighting.
Husspuppi was irresistible, especially to the young fans and forever young on Instagram, soft sale online magazines and bloggers. He was posting photos of himself on private jets, fancy houses, pretty women, and chilling. He was bigger than celebrities, wearing shirts Christiano Ronaldo wear, balling in Dubai like a black king of the Arabia. But everyone knows Husspuppi was into 419, the biggest YAHOO BOY in the country. The first day I heard of Husspuppi I heard he was a Yahoo Boy. Husspuppi himself brags about it. How come Abba Kyari didn’t know but even accepted money to be sent from Husspuppi to his account? A super cop should have known better.
DCP Abba Kyari may show us the life he wants us to see on Facebook and social media platform and some are seduce by it that they don’t want to see some of the allegation against him. First, there was incident in the East in which some ex-police criminal was killed and his properties confisticated. His father later came out to accuse Abba Kyari and his team of collecting proceeds from his hotels or so. Of course Abba Kyari denied the allegation. I didn’t follow the story. Then during the ENDSARS televised fact finding commission in Lagos, one victim of SARS accused Abba Kyari of trying to use shady means to withdraw money from his account. His lawyer confirmed that Abba Kyari asked him to connive and withdraw money from the account of which they promised the lawyer N5 million. The video is on YouTube. There were other allegations. But Abba Kyari’s image is larger than life and we love him so we looked the other way.
It’s time for the police to ask Abba Kyari to step aside so that he can be investigated, especially on this Husspuppi deal. The police cannot tell me they went to investigate Husspuppi’s allegation against his friend for free. That’s not how it works in Nigeria.
