Disgraced super cop, Abba Kyari has in a damning revelation exposed the officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, (NDLEA), as he disclosed that the agency is complicit in helping drug dealers to bring in Cocaine into Nigeria.
THE VENT REPUBLIC recalls that Kyari together with four other police officers under the IRT were arrested in February for belonging to a drug cartel and attempting to bribe an NDLEA officer with $61,000 to facilitate the release of seized cocaine.
DCP Kyari in a N500 million fundamental right enforcement suit marked marked FHC/ABJ/CS/182/22 accused the drug control agency of assisting drug peddlers to ship in Cocaine into the country, while stating that he was ‘framed’ by a disgruntled officer of the agency after he went to demand compensation for the whistleblower that gave information that led to the arrest of a suspect.
His claim was further buttressed in an affidavit filed by his brother, Mamman Nur, who rehashed Kyari’s claim that the drugs were being shipped in from Ethiopia with the ‘knowledge of NDLEA officers’.
Kyari while narrating the NDLEA complicity in the suit stated;
“That on that fateful day, the suspect as usual shipped drugs (cocaine) from Ethiopia to Enugu Airport. The officer of NDLEA cleared him within the airport, then officer of FIB-IRT arrested the suspect with the help of an information.”
“That before the informant accepted to work with the officers of FIB-IRT, they both had an agreement to compensate the informant.”
“That officers of FIB-IRT, having noticed that officers of NDLEA were the ones clearing the said suspect with his drugs (cocaine), they immediately took the suspect to NDLEA and also reported those officers involved in the act.”
“That instead of the NDLEA to handle the matter accordingly and bring their officers involved to book, they decided to frustrate the informant, thereby refusing to compensate the informant.”
“That it was at this juncture that the attention of the DCP Abba Kyari was called, who because the NDLEA officer involved is his friend, decided to intervene for the purpose of compensating the Informant.”
“That the NDLEA officer who refused to compensate the informant was the one who framed DCP Abba Kyari up on a trump-up allegation that he was trying to bribe him.”
“That the agent of the Respondent declared the Applicant wanted because of a mere allegation that he was trying to bribe an NDLEA officer without sufficient proof.”
“That the Nigerian Police Force, based on the allegation of the Respondent arrested the Applicant on February 12, 2022, and handed over to the NDLEA.”
The bail application of Kyari comes up on March 28th at a federal high court in Abuja.
