Two days after, the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, stated the IGP’s directive is pending the outcome of an ongoing internal investigation of the embattled senior officer.

“The IGP, in his letter to the Police Service Commission, dated 31st July 2021, noted that the recommendation for the suspension of the officer is in line with the internal disciplinary processes of the Force.

“The suspension is without prejudice to the constitutional presumption of innocence in favour of the officer,” the statement partly read.

The Special Investigation Panel (SIP), consisting of four senior police officers, is headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of the Force Criminal Investigations Department (FCID), Joseph Egbunike.

The panel is to review all the allegations against DCP Abba Kyari by the US Government as contained in relevant documents that have been availed the NPF by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
