Retired Deputy Inspector General of Police, Ambrose Aisabor, has called on the federal government to surround suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, with strong security measures.
Aisabor said this after the federal government approved Kyari’s extradition to the United States on fraud charges.
In an interview with Daily Trust, the former AIG said that “there should be watertight security around him before he is transferred to the United States.”
He said the likelihood of Kyari being eliminated or poisoned is very high because the fear of the embattled police officer spilling the beans is palpable.
“Abba Kyari was a monster created by some retired and incumbent police leaders. During his time as commander of the IRT, he provided gifts to these officers and their wives,” he said.
“It is believed that some powerful politicians are also on his payroll, so he was considered infallible and no higher official had the courage to check his excesses and illegalities.
“There is a palpable fear everywhere that Abba Kyari might tell the truth as he does not want to go down alone as many serving and retired police officers are suspected to have benefited from his illegal activities.
Meanwhile, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has filed eight charges against Kyari and six others for their involvement in alleged drug trafficking.
The drug enforcement agency also announced that Kyari and six others suspected of drug trafficking will be arraigned on Monday, March 7, 2022.
