Simon Ekpa, a top member of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Saturday called on the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to look into Nigerian big guns who he said are working against the arrest and transfer of embattled cop, Abba Kyari.
Ekpa’s IPOB is canvassing for a new nation.
Recall Kyari has been in the eye of the storm since the FBI said it was seeking his arrest over allegations that he abetted a $1.1 million transnational cyber-fraud.
A U.S. grand jury at the District Court of Central District Court of California, is pressing charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to engage in money laundering, and aggravated identity theft against Kyari alongside five others, three of whom have been arrested.
The scam, court filings showed, was spearheaded by a former Nigerian Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi, who had pleaded guilty.
“I urge @FBI to pay serious attention to Nigeria dignitaries, politicians defending and urging Nigeria Government to resist transfer of Abba Kyari to America to face the charges of Cyber crime and fraud. The FBI should now understand that Nigeria breeds criminals, need for Biafra,” Ekpa wrote on his known Twitter handle.
