Minister gives update on Abba Kyari matter

Police Affairs Minister, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi, has given an update on the investigation of super cop Abba Kyari.

Kyari is being investigated for an alleged complicity in cases of fraud by Huspuppi.

Speaking on ‘Channels Television’ on Tuesday, the minister noted that police were working on ball national and international dimensions of the issues involved.

He said, “The issue of Abba Kyari has become a public domain and I think by now everybody has heard that the police in their very wisdom, in their usual way of becoming transparent and fair to all have set up a committee to investigate all these allegations”.

We have also reported that the committee has submitted the report to the Inspector General of Police (IGP). We have also submitted this report and recommendations to the Attorney-General of the Federation for a legal opinion, thereafter, we will take it to Mr President for final consideration.

So, you can see that even though this matter is a local matter here, it has some international connotations. We have to do some due diligence to ensure that we do the right thing. We have to do some consultations with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Justice before a final decision will be taken.

But what is important is that Nigerians should know that the police management is up and doing and they have done what they are supposed to do. I hope people will wait and see what actions will be taken on this matter.”
