The Police Service Commission has stated that Abba Kyari, a deputy commissioner of police, would be investigated thoroughly following his indictment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for his alleged involvement with fraudster, Hushpuppi.
Abba Kyari’s name popped up as an accomplice to one business deal with Hushpuppi and he has been declared wanted by the FBI for receiving bribe from Hushpuppi.
The Commissioner in charge of Media on the board of the Police Service Commission, Mr Austin Braimoh, was engaged in a chat with the Punch where he stressed that the PSC would carry out a separate and independent investigation on the matter.
He said: “We don’t always believe the police should investigate the police (personnel) except through the commission. But the important thing is that whatever thing they decide to do, we are not obliged to accept their investigations. So, our investigation department would still go further to get the facts.
‘’What we know they would do is that a query would be issued based on the complaints against him, he would be asked to defend himself and then, he would face what we call the Force Disciplinary Committee which would interrogate him and the report is passed to the DIG in charge and from there to the IG.
‘’The IG would basically forward the final findings and recommendations to the commission. The commission would now carry on with their own investigation; we have to re-investigate what they have done to ensure that they comply with the rule of law and what is expected.
‘’Our lawyer would look into it, he would check the facts and if we feel there is negligence and that some things are not done, we would do a thorough job and eventually, we would have recommendations from the standing committee to the plenary for a final decision and our decision is final on his career.’’
