The Nigeria Police Force, NPF, has arrested former Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari.
Kyari was arrested a few hours after the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) declared him wanted over alleged drug links.
Spokesperson of NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, at a press conference had detailed how Kyari belonged to a drug cartel that operates the Brazil-Ethiopia-Nigeria illicit drug route.
Recall that Kyari was suspended over his alleged involvement with an international fraudster, Ramon Abass, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
The former Intelligence Response Team, IRT, boss was alleged to have benefitted from a heist carried out by Hushpuppi and his gang in Dubai.
