BREAKING: NDLEA declares DCP Abba Kyari Wanted

The Suspended Deputy Police Commissioner, Abba Kyari, has been declared wanted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, over alleged links with an international drug cartel.

The Spokesperson for NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, disclosed this on Monday during a Press Briefing at its office in Abuja.

The declaration by the NDLEA comes a few months after the former police intelligence unit commander was indicted in an internet fraud case by a US court.

The court also had declared Mr Kyari wanted to answer allegations of complicity in the $1.1million bribe fraud perpetrated by Ramon Abbas aka Hushpuppi.

Kyari, until his suspension by the Commission, was the officer-in-charge of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team.

Mr Kyari’s suspension was based on the recommendation of Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali. The police chief recommended the suspension as a temporary measure while the force’s investigate Mr Kyari’s relationship with popular fraudster, Hushpuppi.

In the new revelation by the NDLEA, the agency said Mr Kyari is a member of a drug cartel that operates the Brazil-Ethiopia-Nigeria illicit drug pipeline, and needs to answer questions that crop up in an ongoing drug case in which he is the principal actor.

The agency also added that he had refused to cooperate with them, hence the reason for their declaration.

A report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States of America had earlier indicted him in the case of fraud involving Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi.
