Cocaine Deal: PSC Suspends Assistant Police Commissioner, ASP Who Worked Under Abba Kyari

The Police Service Commission (PSC) has suspended an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Sunday Ubua, and Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), James Bawa.

The two officers both worked under Abba Kyari in the Intelligence Response Team of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and were also said to be involved in the cocaine deal.

This was contained in a statement issued on Thursday by the Head of Press and Public Relations of the PSC, Ikechukwu Ani.

“They were also alleged to be involved in the current cocaine seizure and transfer to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency,” the statement read.

The PSC stated that the move is in line with the Public Service Rules 030406 and that the suspension, which took effect from Monday, 14th, February 2022, will stand “until the outcome of the investigation into the allegations levelled against them”.

According to the commission Kyari, who is in the custody of the NDLEA, remains suspended until investigations into the matter are completed. It also suspended Inspector Simon Agrigba and Inspector John Nuhu in line with the powers of delegation.

“The IGP is further requested to inform the Commission of the arrest of ASP John Umoru who is currently at large whenever his arrest is effected to enable it to take necessary action,” the PSC said in another letter to the IGP, Usman Alkali Baba.
