How NDLEA Helped Drug Lords Ship Cocaine to Nigeria – Abba Kyari



Suspended head of the Intelligence Response Team, IRT, Abba Kyari, has revealed how National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) officers have been helping drug barons to ship cocaine into Nigeria.

He made the disclosure in an affidavit filed by his brother, Mamman Nur, in a N500 million fundamental right enforcement suit against the Federal Government, Vanguard reports.

The affidavit reads in part, “That on that fateful day, the suspect as usual shipped drugs (cocaine) from Ethiopia to Enugu Airport. The officer of NDLEA cleared him within the airport, then an officer of FIB-IRT arrested the suspect with the help of an informant.”

“That before the informant accepted to work with the officers of FIB-IRT, they both had an agreement to compensate the informant.”

“That officers of FIB-IRT, having noticed that officers of NDLEA were the ones clearing the said suspect with his drugs (cocaine), they immediately took the suspect to NDLEA and also reported those officers involved in the act.”

“That instead of the NDLEA to handle the matter accordingly and bring their officers involved to book, they decided to frustrate the informant, thereby refusing to compensate the informant.”

“That it was at this juncture that the attention of the DCP Abba Kyari was called, who because the NDLEA officer involved is his friend, decided to intervene for the purpose of compensating the Informant.”

“That the NDLEA officer who refused to compensate the informant was the one who framed DCP Abba Kyari up on a trump-up allegation that he was trying to bribe him.”

“That the agent of the Respondent declared the Applicant wanted because of a mere allegation that he was trying to bribe an NDLEA officer without sufficient proof.”

“That the Nigerian Police Force, based on the allegation of the Respondent arrested the Applicant on February 12, 2022, and handed over to the NDLEA.”

Kyari’s bail application will be heard on March 28th while his fundamental human rights suit has been adjourned till April 7.
