Special Investigation Panel of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has said its Investigation on DCP Abba Kyari is not complete yet, the reason it’s still unable to submit its report.
This was made known in a statement signed by police spokesman, Frank MBA.
According to the statement, “The Nigeria Police Force wishes to inform the general public that the probe into the alleged indictment of DCP Abba Kyari by the FBI, being conducted by the NPF Special Investigation Panel (SIP), is still ongoing.
“Members of the public are enjoined to note that the panel has not submitted its report to the Inspector General of Police, as being wrongly reported in some news outlet and online platforms.
“The Force hereby reassures the public that the outcome of investigations by the probe panel would be communicated accordingly upon conclusion of the investigations.”
Recall that Kyari is under investigation for his alleged involvement in a $1.1m Internet fraud allegedly perpetrated by an Instagram influencer, Abbas Ramon, popularly known as Hushpuppi and four others; AbdulRahman Juma (Abdul); Vincent Kelly Chibuzo (Kelly); Rukayat Motunrayo Fashola (Morayo); and Bolatito Agbabiaka (Bolamide).
Kyari, who is currently on suspension, has been indicted by a United States District Court which issued an arrest warrant for him.
The US court also ordered the FBI to arrest the police officer for his alleged role in a $1m scam.
Following the development, the IG on August 1 recommended the suspension of the DCP to the Police Service Commission and also set up the SIP to investigate the allegations against him.
