DCP Abba Kyari and ACP Sunday Ubua, whose annual salaries are less than 3 million naira, are said to have received a total of N4.2 billion from separate bank accounts.
The revelation came just hours after the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, said there was no evidence against disgraced super cob Abba Kyari.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) sent details to Mr. Malami in response to his statement during an interview with Channels Television.
According to the drug enforcement agency, N1.4 billion passed through Kyari’s account while he was commander of the IRT.
Ubua, Kyari’s deputy, also received more than N2.8 billion, which was traced to eight of his bank accounts.
Ubua was said to have received a lump sum of N2.664 billion on August 15, 2019, as a result of the NDLEA’s investigations.
The NDLEA believes that the sums traced to Kyari and his deputy are linked to the sale of illicit substances worth N3 billion, including Tramadol.
- “You will recall that the NDLEA is investigating an allegation that Kyari and his team seized a large consignment of tramadol in a warehouse at Amuwo Odofin in Lagos. The consignment was worth about N3bn. “
- The IRT under Kyari’s command seized these drugs, and they are believed to have sold the consignment to a cartel afterwards.
- It was around the time of this seizure that Kyari’s deputy received a deposit of N2.664 billion in his personal bank account.
- Out of this money, he purchased FBN Insurance shares worth about N100m.”
