The police boss explained that his first contact with Hushipuppi was about two years ago when he called his office that somebody in Nigeria seriously threatened to kill his family in Nigeria and he sent the person’s phone number and pleaded police take action before the person attacks 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 long time friends who have money issues between them hence we released the suspect on bail to go and he was not taken to any jail’,he stated.
‘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’.
‘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’, Kyari explained.
‘For those who are celebrating that this is an indictment on us and mentioning some fictitious big money, 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. They will continue seeing us serving our father land and we will continue responding to all distress calls from all Nigerians provided they are life threatening’, he said.
‘For Good Nigerians who appreciate our service please don’t worry as our hands are clean and they should please not respond to those celebrating and creating many false narratives without any evidence. We are used to such types of people and false newsmakers and distributors’, Kyari wrote.
