Wanted former head of the Inspector General of Police Response Team, Abba Kyari, is not in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.

Few hours after DCP Kyari was declared wanted by the drug war agency, the suspended police officer was arrested by the force.

DCP Kyari was earlier today accused of being involved in a 25 kilogram cocaine deal.

According to the spokesman of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, the five of the wanted suspects “were driven into the National Headquarters of NDLEA in Abuja at about 5pm on Monday 14th February to formally hand them over for interrogation and further investigation.”

The arrested officer include DCP Abba Kyari; ACP Sunday J. Ubua; ASP Bawa James; Inspector Simon Agirgba

The Agency wishes to assure that no stone will be left unturned to ensure that all suspects already in custody and those that may still be indicted in the course of investigation will face the full weight of the law at the end of the ongoing probe.
