Police Closes IRT, Tactical Squad Satellite Units Nationwide

 

The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, has taken drastic action following the arrest of the suspended commander of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT), DCP Abba Kyari.

Recall that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) had indicted the former IRT leader in the trafficking of cocaine, which subsequently led to his arrest by the police following the intervention of the presidency.

In a statement on Tuesday, Force Deputy PRO, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the police chief has ordered the immediate shutdown of all satellite units of the IRT and Special Tactical Squad nationwide.

On Monday, that police deputy spokesman said the IGP had ordered the immediate transfer of Abba Kyari and four others to the NDLEA over alleged drug dealings.

 

Adejobi added that others officers arrested are ACP Sunday J. Ubua; ASP Bawa James; Inspector Simon Agirgba and Inspector John Nuhu.

Also, the NDLEA, in a statement released by its spokesman, Femi Babafemiconfirmed the arrest of Kyari and four other police officers over alleged links with an international drug cartel.

He further stated that Kyari and others were driven into the NDLEA headquarters in Abuja at about 5 pm on Monday for interrogation and further investigation.

The agency vowed that no stone will be left unturned to ensure that suspects in custody and those that may still be named full weight of the law

But fresh details have emerged indicating that more senior police operatives and other security agents would be arrested following the detention of DCP Kyari.

 

Sources disclosed to Daily Trust that top police officers and security operatives may be involved in the latest incident involving the disgraced cop.
