Bako Waziri Kyari, has accused Abba Kyari, president Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff of duping him of N29.9m.

Bako, who claimed to be a nephew to Abba Kyari, during a popular radio programme, Berekete Family , on
Human Rights Radio 101.1FM in Abuja, alleged that Kyari with the aid of Sani Ado, whom he claimed worked with the Bureau of Public Procurement, collected N29.9m from him in order to help him get a contract. He said:

“Abba Kyari asked if I had a company registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission. I told him I did and so he asked me to come down to Abuja. We met at least four times at Caledonia Hotel on Gana Street, Maitama. We discussed there. The hotel should have CCTV and this can be confirmed.

“Abba Kyari collected the documents of my company. He said I would supply 15 Toyota Hilux vehicles to the Presidential Villa.

He gave me an agreement to sign and I signed two documents. He collected two letterheads from me, 12 passport photos and introduced me to Sani Ado and Alhaji Ibrahim.

He said anytime they needed money, he would let me know so that I could give the money to Sani Ado. Ado began collecting money from me to process the contract.

Before depositing money into Ado’s account,

I always alerted Abba Kyari and he would tell me to go ahead.

“All the money I transferred to Ado summed up to N29, 950,000. The total contract was worth N300,725,000. They promised me 30 per cent profit of the total contract which is about N94m.”

However, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) has said it has begun work on the petition linking Abba Kyari.

Meanwhile, since the news broke on Friday, many have taken to social media to drop their two cents on the matter. A lot of commenters were of the opinion that Buhari, must sack his Chief of Staff, in order to give the fight against corruption credence.

If there is any Nigerian who still believes that President Buhari will fight corruption or that he is a

man of integrity after watching and hearing about Frauds and contract scam by President’s Chief of Staff – Abba Kyari

Such persons should seek mental help.


Abba Kyari have been operating like a fraudster. 15 Toyota hilux to the Villa for what? The EFCC officials are loyal to him because he’s the President’s CoS, this is not the Change that Nigerians want. I was shocked when the Bureau denied that Ado is not their staff. SMH.

Buhari’s Govt is shoulder-deep in the murky waters of corruption – everyone around him is corrupt and he’s not only a facilitator and enabler of corruption but a beneficiary of it.

This is the most corrupt Govt in Nigeria’s recent history.

I hope Punch follows this to the end.

Chief of Staff Abba Kyari allegedly swindled his own relative, blocked EFCC from investigating, detained and redeployed the police officer who dared to investigate – only after which the police officer himself started to believe that Abba Kyari is actually involved.

Messy stuff.

ThankGod Ukachukwu@kcnaija

Corruption/Money laundering/tax evasion N100b allegation against lion of Burdillion. (National leader APC and godfather of South West)

Corrupt allegation against Abba Kyari (Chief of staff to Buhari)

They are still the same people screaming anti-corruption and vote for Buhari.

Integrity Mr@Intergrity56

For me, If President @MBuhari did not investigate various allegations against his Chief of Staff, I will conclude that Abba Kyari was only fronting for the President.
