High Court Dismisses FG's Suit To Extradite Kyari To US

The Nigerian Police revealed that it will not interfere in the ongoing investigation of Abba Kyari, a suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) following his arrest in connection with his alleged involvement in a drug deal.

CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, the Acting PRO for the police force on Tuesday said that the force cannot account for any illicit deal undertaken by a suspended officer of the force, but for the serving officers being investigated, the police will expect feedback from the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

The police had handed over the suspended DCP Kyari and four others to the NDLEA, on Monday, a few hours after he was declared wanted by the agency.

Kyari was accused of corruption and unprofessional infractions, as well as tampering with narcotic exhibits.

“The arrest of the officers was sequel to pieces of information received from the leadership of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on 10th February 2022,” said Adejobi who is a Chief Superintendent of Police. “In line with standard administrative procedure of the Force, the Inspector General of Police ordered a high-level, discreet, and in-house investigation into the allegations.

Femi Babafemi, the spokesperson said: “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 the investigation will face the full weight of the law at the end of the ongoing probe.”
