‘Abba Kyari May Be Dismissed’ – Police Service Commission Reveals
The Nigerian Police Service Commission has indicated that if it gets to the point that the commission has to dismiss the embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police and Commander of the Inspector-General of Police’s Intelligence Response and Monitoring Team, Abba Kyari, it will not hesitate to do so.
This comes after the Federal Bureau of Investigation launched an investigation into his alleged involvement in a $1.1million internet fraud.
According to the commission, if he was found guilty of the allegations, the PSC had the power to determine his fate.
This was made known by the Commissioner in charge of Media on the board of the Police Service Commission, Mr. Austin Braimoh who spoke with The Punch.
According to him, the PSC would not be bound by the IG’s review of the allegations against Kyari, adding that the commission would carry out a further probe on whatever findings the police authorities made on Kyari.
“So, the commission is awaiting the full report of investigation and his indictment and we will treat it officially; we would apply the law. The law will determine the various punishments that we can award against him. He can be dismissed depending on the gravity of the offence; we can demote him, reduce his rank; we can suspend him.”
