2 mins read

Embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari is set to be demoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police for allegedly gliding from super cop to super criminal.

This recommendation came on the heels of the DIG Joseph Egbuniike panel and fresh directive by the Police Service Commission to the Force headquarters, which investigated suspended Kyari over the viral $1.1million Hushpuppi internet fraud scam.

The findings of the investigation reportedly revealed that the DCP was found to have romanced with drug barons all these years, thereby violating the NPF professional ethics.

Another ‘crime’ the highly ranked policeman was charged with was the violation of the social media policy of the Nigerian Police Force. The panel was disappointed, Kyari responded to the weighty FBI’s indictment via mere Facebook page of his.

Speaking on the bribe which Kyari allegedly collected, the panel said:  “The evidence of bribe is circumstantial since it was not proven that the bribe was paid into the officer’s account nor was any proceeds of the bribe traced by the panel much less linking the officer to any such proceeds.’’

Just in case you missed it, Abubakar Malami , the Attorney General of the federation in his legal advice of the Police report, had disclosed that a prama facie case of fraudulent involvement was established against the embattled  officer but the report was not enough to nail Kyari in any court of law.

For more evidence, Malami has directed further investigation into Kyari’s alleged involvement/links in money laundering deals, according to a senior police source.
