Cocaine Scandal: More arrests to be made within Security circles as NDLEA remands Kyari

There were reports on Monday that more Senior Police operatives and other security agents would be arrested and detained in relation to the web of drug deal scandal that the suspended police super cop, DSP Abba Kyari, has been caught in.

Credible sources told newsmen on Monday that more high profile officers will be picked to join the suspended commander of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) in detention at the Force Intelligence Bureau of the Nigeria Police Force, over drug-related offences.

Commenting on the development at the police headquarters, a closed source said Kyari’s alleged involvement in drug deals and his arrest by the NDLEA on Monday had bursted many hidden secrets such that many eyebrows have been raised.

The source stressed that there was a “high profile complicity” in the latest incident involving the widely celebrated super cop who the NDLEA said has strong ties with cross-border drug barons using his position in the police as cover.


“People would be picked in other high profile places because the secret has been busted,” the sources said.

“The investigation of Kyari on the latest and other pending issues were being deliberately delayed by powerful forces because beyond the suspended deputy commissioner of police and the few officers whose names have been mentioned, there are some senior officers that are directly involved and they know they would be implicated, hence the tactical delay and needless technicalities in handling the matter,” he added.

According to the Daily Trust, “The latest scandal involving the suspended Kyari came to the fore on Monday, a few hours after the super cop was declared wanted by the NDLEA over his involvement in a 25 kilograms cocaine deal.

“The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has already handed him over to the NDLEA. Daily Trust reports that the arrest of Kyari dominated discussion at the Force Headquarters Abuja yesterday.

It was gathered that DCP Kyari and others spent the night in NDLEA cells as the agency drilled them over the level of their complicity in the illegal drug deal.
