The Minister of Police Affair, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi, has disclosed that the issue of Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police would see its final verdict by the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that according to a report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation FBI in the United States, Abba Kyari allegedly received roughly N8 million from Hushpuppi to assist in the arrest and custody of his rival, Chibuzo Kelly Vincent, following a disagreement over a fraud deal they engaged on.
Following the accusations, Maigari Dingyadi has maintained that due diligence has been taken in the case and they need to make some consultations with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Justice before the final report is sent to Buhari for a verdict.
The minister made the disclosure when he was engaged as a guest on Channels Television’s programme ‘Politics Today’.
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 IGP. We have also submitted this report and recommendations to the Attorney-General of the Federation for 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”.
