The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, (NDLEA), has confirmed that the wanted and suspended Commander of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the Nigerian Police Force, DCP Abba Kyari is now in its custody.
Kyari’s arrest came few hours after he was declared wanted by the anti-drug agency over his alleged involvement in a 25 kilograms Cocaine deal.
The NDLEA has issued a statement earlier today detailing how Abba Kyari and some of his team members were involved in a cocaine deal.
In another statement issued later today by Director, Media and Advocacy of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, he disclosed that the Police has handed over Kyari and four others to the agency at around 5pm on Monday.
The statement partly read: “Five of the wanted suspects namely: DCP Abba Kyari; ACP Sunday J. Ubua; ASP Bawa James; Inspector Simon Agirgba and Inspector John Nuhu were driven into the National Headquarters of NDLEA in Abuja at about 5pm on Monday 14th February to formally hand them over for interrogation and further investigation.
“The Agency wishes to assure that no stone will be left unturned to ensure that all suspects already in custody and those that may still be indicted in the course of investigation will face the full weight of the law at the end of the ongoing probe”.
