PROBE PANEL ON ABBA KYIARI SUBMITS REPORT
The Special Investigation Panel on the suspended Head of the Police Intelligence Response Team, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, has submitted its report to the Inspector General of Police, at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, on Thursday.
The chairman of the probe panel reveals that the report contains the case file of the probe, pieces of evidence and findings as well as testimonies from DCP Abba Kyari and other persons.
The panel was set up to investigate Abba Kyari’s indictment by the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation.
An FBI agent, Andrew Innocenti, had in a document titled, ‘Criminal Complaint By Telephone Or Other Reliable Electronic Means’ filed before the United States District Court for the Central District of California, alleged that a suspected fraudster, Abas Ramon, aka Hushpuppi, contracted Kyari to detain a co-conspirator, Chibuzo Vincent, for threatening to expose the alleged $1.1m fraud committed against a Qatari businessman.
The agency said Hushpuppi paid $20,600 into a bank account provided by Kyari.
Following the allegations, Kyari was suspended from service on July 31 by the Police Service Commission. He also appeared before the SIP over several days.
