Suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, on Monday, dismissed allegation by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), linking him to the ownership of 14 assets, including shopping mall, residential estate, polo playground, lands and farmland.

Kyari, a former commander, Intelligence Response Team, was reacting to recent reports orchestrated by NDLEA, in a bid to further tarnish his image.

In a statement issued on Monday, Kyari’s lawyer, Hamza Dan Tani said the agency resorted to cheap blackmail because

“NDLEA’s case in court against Abba Kyari and 4 others is not going well for them.

“They expected the Court case to go smoothly in their favour the way their sponsored media trials went viral between February to April 2022.

“They failed to understand that unlike media trials, courts need real evidence and facts which NDLEA don’t have in this case” Barrister Hamza said.

The lawyer said, “By all means, out of desperation, again, NDLEA wanted to spoil Abba Kyari’s name at all cost because they know that all their initial efforts have failed as overwhelming majority of good Nigerians who want peace and security for the Nation are still behind Abba Kyari despite the set up by NDLEA against Abba Kyari in January 2022, which was followed by massive sponsored media trial earlier this year.

“Again, NDLEA is sponsoring fabricated lies, untrue stories, and flimsy allegations, trump up and false charges in Court without justification against Abba kyari.

He recalled that on August 29, 2022, Justice Inyang Eko of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja dismissed a suit filed by the Attorney General of Federation to extradite DCP Abba Kyari to America.

“On 30th Day of August, NDLEA filed another 24 Count charges against DCP Abba Kyari just to mislead the general public and tarnish his image despite the same matter being before Federal High Court in Maiduguri and without any Evidence linking Abba kyari to any of those properties or any link to any Drug money, stealing government money or any proceed of any crime.

Hamza insisted that all the allegations on monies and properties by NDLEA belonging to Abba Kyari are false, untrue and lies, just to mislead the public into wrongly believing that it belongs to Abbakyari.

“The business men who own those properties and gave their documents have already filed their cases against NDLEA in Federal High Court Maiduguri.

“NDLEA without any evidence went and marked innocent peoples properties in Maiduguri and Abuja in April 2022 and released the news to the media which went viral April 2022.

“This is just a malicious media trial without any evidence to show in the Court. If NDLEA has any evidence linking Abba kyari to any of those properties apart from his farm land and one house, they should release it to the public immediately.

“These whole properties matter is before Federal High Court in Maiduguri but NDLEA are still desperate by trying to link Abba Kari without any evidence to financial crimes and properties that do not belong to him, neither is there one kobo of drug money or any crime money that is linked to Abba Kyari in any way.

“We challenge NDLEA to release the Evidence to the public immediately if any. The whole thing is only aimed at Media trials as they have no evidence to show to the Court. If they have the Evidence let them release it to the media. This is how all their cases will crumble in the courts since their aim is only a media trial.

“For the records, the total money in Abba Kyari’s account is 2.8 Million Naira in his UBA account, the only account he has been using for the past 8 years, 7 thousand pounds in GTB kept over 8yrs ago and 350k Naira in GTB kept many years ago.

“Less than 200k naira in Sterling Bank and Access Bank Account not in use for over 8 years. These are all the money that DCP Abba Kyari has in his accounts, which he has declared and NDLEA should immediately release all Abba Kyari’s account statements to the public if what they are saying is true” they stated.
