FBI  Allegations: Inspector General Of Police Activates Internal Disciplinary Process Against  DCP Kyari:

(By Chris K. Amdi) -)Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police, Alkali Baba, has recommended the suspension of DCP Abba Kyari, the Head of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT), from the Nigeria Police Force, to enable the force conclude investigations on the allegations of complicity in fraudulent activities by  FBI against the senior police officer.

The IGP, in his letter to the Police Service Commission, dated 31st July 2021, noted that the recommendation for the suspension of the officer is in line with the internal disciplinary processes of the Force, adding, in  a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer Frank Mba,  that the suspension is also expected to create an enabling environment for the NPF Special Investigation Panel to carry out its investigations into the allegations against DCP Abba Kyari without unhindered.

 

The Special Investigation Panel (SIP), to  review of all the allegations against DCP Abba Kyari by the US Government as contained in relevant documents that have been availed the NPF by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), comprises of  four Senior Police Officers,  and  it is headed by DIG Joseph Egbunike, the Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of the Force Criminal Investigations Department (FCID).

While the suspension is without prejudice to the constitutional presumption of innocence in favour of the officer, the SIP is also to obtain detailed representation of DCP Abba Kyari to all the allegations levelled against him, conduct further investigations as it deems fit, and submit recommendations to guide further actions by the Force Leadership on the matter.

Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police  has assured that would be  committed  Force to the Rule of Law and  absolute respect for the rights and privileges of the officer throughout the period of the investigations.
