Suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, is again under scrutiny as National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has declared wanted over alleged links with an international drug cartel.
Making the declaration at the NDLEA headquarters Abuja on Monday morning, the spokesperson, Femi Babafemi, narrated how the agency nabbed the former Head of the Intelligence Response Team.
According to Babafemi, Kyari belonged to a drug cartel that operates the Brazil-Ethiopia-Nigeria illicit drug pipeline.
The NDLEA spokesperson said Kyari contacted an officer of the Agency in January 2022 and tried to seal a deal.

NDLEA declares Abba Kyari wanted. Accuses him of being a member of an international drug cartel. Just few months after FBI indicted him as an accomplice to Hushpuppi. Time up?

NDLEA is acting a script. Even me that is an ordinary civilian knows where to find Abba Kyari if I need to see him.
If he is indeed wanted, they know where to find him.

And Abba Kyari is one versatile individual. A Cop in the morning, Tailor in the noon, and Pharmacist in the night.

Abba Kyari, the “alleged super cop”, is not the only one involved in these dastardly acts.
His old IGP unit as a whole should be investigated.
They imprison & kïll innocent Nigerians, while the real criminals get away with it because they can "settle."

Abba Kyari was running Cocaine deals just this month man. Nah this is insane. Man sent his younger brother to deliver cocaine money. They have texts, photos and video on him. He was even bragging about another cocaine deal he pulled off 3 weeks earlier

Abba Kyari has destroyed and defaced the image of this nation worldwide more than any Nigerian in the last 10 years.

The unraveling of Abba Kyari makes you wonder how many more crooks are occupying high positions in the police. At the rate this man was going, he would’ve ended up as our IGP or a contender in a few years. We are grateful to the FBI. Pushing drugs while under investigation? Damn!

Abba Kyari drug trafficking case will open the Pandora box. Most of your favs might be implicated.
28 days of February go long like 72 days of January.

Police Service Commission & AGF Malami are complicit in Abba Kyari’s saga. Kyari is a wanted man in USA, he is on fake suspension, he deals on cocaine. Yet Malami is busy dragging his feet. So let’s see how the NDLEA will handle this case. Buhari is probably in Shock or Unaware.
