Fear grips some top officials of the Nigeria Police Force as the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) digs deeper into the drug trafficking case involving Abba Kyari and four other police operatives.
Naija News had earlier reported that police arrested the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police and four others, Sunday Ubuah, ASP Bawa James, Inspector Simon Agrigba and John Nuhu and handed them over to NDLEA.
Some operatives in the force who have one thing or the other to do with Kyari and his men at one point or the other are afraid that the former head of the IGP Intelligence Response Team might mention their names.
The issue has become a major point of discussion among police operatives. Daily Trust disclosed that a police officer at the office of Kyari on Thursday could be heard saying, “the matter get as ehn be o… my prayer be say make anybody no mention my name o… I no like wahala o…” (sic).
Another officer said, “We are all law enforcers. We will settle the matter at last, but the NDLEA should tread softly on this matter. They should not spoil the names of our Ogas with this their acclaimed investigation. No one is a saint or clean as far as Nigeria is concerned.”
A senior official while discussing with one of his colleagues said, “We heard NDLEA has gone to court in order to detain already suspended personnel beyond 48 hours.
“Head or tail, the agency wants them to disclose more information at their disposal in order to finger some people, we are not afraid. Anybody found connected with the matter will definitely defend himself. Legally, the Force will clear its name. The Force will also ensure its image is rebranded.”
