Breaking: See Reasons That Lead to Abba Kyari’s Suspension

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has recommended the immediate suspension of DCP Kyari, the Head of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT), from the Service of the Nigeria Police Force, pending the outcome of an ongoing internal investigation touching on him.

Recall, last week, DCP Abba Kyari was indicted by a US court sitting in California over alleged involvement in internet fraud of over a 1.1million US dollars with Ramonu Abba popularly known as Hushpuppi where it was alleged that he (Hushpuupi) swindled a Qatari businessman trying to set up a school in Qatar.

A United States (US) court has called for the arrest of Abba Kyari, the Deputy Commissioner of Police.

DCP Abba Kyari has since denied any involvement in the said internet fraud whose victim was said to be a Qatari businessman.


But the IGP, in his letter to the Police Service Commission, dated 31st July 2021, signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, The IGP noted that the recommendation for the suspension of the officer is in line with the internal disciplinary processes of the Force.

He revealed through the letter that “The suspension is also expected to create an enabling environment for the NPF Special Investigation Panel to carry out its investigations into the weighty allegations against DCP Abba Kyari without interference.”

“The suspension is without prejudice to the constitutional presumption of innocence in favour of the officer,” He stated.

Recall, hills9ja had also reported how Nigerians have reacted to the indictment of Mr Kyari, with many calling for the extradition of the “Super Cop”. Just yesterday, in a statement by the Police service commission, It noted that “A US Court cannot order the arrest of a Non-Citizen resident in Nigeria.’ The statement further revealed that only the PSC has prerogative power to either suspend, demote or dismiss an erring officer.”
