DCP Abba Kyari to be demoted to lower rank – Police Displinary Committee

In view of his ongoing drug deal and internet fraud scandal, the suspended Commander of IRT, DCP Abba Kyari, may be demoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police in due course.

Going by latest reports, the Nigeria Police Force Disciplinary Committee recommended his demotion after reviewing the report of the Special Investigation Panel that investigated him over an indictment by an affidavit of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.

According to the Punch, “The Committee found Kyari to have fraternised with fraudsters and also violated the social media policies of the Nigeria Police Force by responding to the FBI’s indictment on his Facebook page without recourse to laid down procedures.

It was gathered that the Police began further investigations against the suspended DCP following observations by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, who had observed that there exists a prima facie against Kyari, but the Police report was too watery to nail him in Court.


He had said, “That there exists a prima facie case of conspiracy, collaboration, receipt, conversion, transfer and/or retention of proceeds of unlawful activities contrary to the provision of Section 15, 17 & 18 of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2004 and Section 17 of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Est) Act, Cap EI Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 against DCP Abba Kyari and other suspects in view of the overwhelming evidence showing the nature of his disguised financial transactions and activities Ramon Abbas (Hushpuppi) and others.”

Meanwhile, the Police Service Commission has given the Police a two-week ultimatum to conclude further investigation into the allegation against Kyari.
