PSC Orders Police to Conclude Abba Kyari’s Case in Two Weeks
By Alabidun Shuaib Abdulrahman
The Police Service Commission has given Police two weeks to complete their investigation into the issue involving suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari.
The commission also recommended that the investigation be carried out by a different panel, according to a statement issued by the Head of Press and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani.
The decision was made during the commission’s 14th plenary meeting, which ended on February 11, 2022 in Abuja and was led by retired Inspector-General of Police and Chairman of the Commission, Alhaji Musiliu Smith.
Kyari was the officer-in-charge of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team until he was suspended by the commission.
A report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States of America had indicted him in the case of fraud involving Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi.
The report was investigated by a special panel set up by the IGP Usman Alkali, who also forwarded it to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, for legal advice.
