The suspended Commander of the Police Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari, and other suspects are undergoing marathon grilling over alleged drug trafficking, PUNCH reports.

Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency told our correspondent on Tuesday that “progress is being made” on the interrogation of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police and other suspects.

Abba Kyari was declared wanted by the anti-narcotic agency yesterday and subsequently arrested for getting involved in a 25kg cocaine deal.

The Nigeria Police Force, through the Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, announced Kyari’s arrest. The police subsequently handed Kyari over to NDLEA on Monday.

An official of NDLEA, who prefers anonymity “because an investigation is ongoing”, told our correspondent that Kyari would be arraigned soon.

According to the legal officer, the facts obtained so far are enough to arraign Kyari.

“He will be arraigned for criminal charges in accordance with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency Act,” the official added.

When contacted, NDLEA Director of Media and Advocacy, Mr Femi Babafemi, also said Kyari would be prosecuted.

“The ultimate goal of any criminal investigation is prosecution,” Babafemi said without giving details.
