The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba has assured Nigerians of Justice after receiving the report of the probe panel set up to investigate the allegations against erstwhile IRT boss, Abba Kyari.
Kyari had since been relieved of his position as Head of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT).
He is being investigated by the Police after internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas (Hushpuppi) indicted him while standing trial in a US court. Documents obtained from the court through the FBI show that Hushpuppi transferred $1.1 million to Abba Kyari.
Police spokesperson on Thursday in Abuja, CP Frank MBA, in a statement noted that the report on the probe was submitted by the chairman of the SIP, DIG Joseph Egbunike, at the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
“DIG Egbunike, while presenting the report, appreciated the IGP for the confidence reposed on him and the members of the Panel to conduct the probe. He noted that the Panel commenced investigations immediately it was inaugurated on 2nd August, 2021 and the report submitted is an outcome of a painstaking, transparent and exhaustive investigative process. He further revealed that the report presented contained the case file of the probe, evidences and findings as well as testimonies from DCP Abba Kyari and other persons and groups linked to the matter.
“The IGP, who commended the Panel for the work done, stated that the essence of the probe was to carry out discrete investigations into the allegation levied against the Officer to enable the Force leadership be appropriately guided in its decision-making processes. The IGP assured that a careful and expeditious review of the recommendations would be undertaken by the Force Management Team and thereafter forwarded to appropriate quarters for necessary action(s). He reiterated as always, the commitment of the Force to justice for all,” the statement read.
