Nigeria’s National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Monday said the suspended top police officer Abba Kyari is a member of an international drug cartel.
NDLEA also declared Kyari, a deputy commissioner of police and former head of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT), wanted for pushing illicit drugs.
Kyari was suspended by the police after the United States’ FBI indicted him in the fraud case of a popular fraudster, Ramon Abbas, known as Hushpuppi.
United States authorities said Kyari was a conspirator with Hushpuppi in a $1.1 million deal to defraud a Qatari businessman. (Guardian)
