Arrest Abba Kyari’s brother before he flees – Activist tells security agencies


Deji Adeyanju, a civil society activist and the convener of Concerned Nigerians, has demanded for the prosecution of the younger brother of embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari to prevent him from departing the country.

Members of a network managed by international scammer Ramon Abass, also known as Hushpuppi, paid N235,120,000 into his brother’s account, according to police investigations.

Investigations also found that the previous commander of the Intelligence Response Team made numerous transfers of N44 million to his brother’s bank account.

According to Adeyanju, the police should have detained Kyari’s brother in order to prevent him from tampering with evidence.

He said, “In a sane country, the brother should have been arrested by now. It has been in the public domain for quite some time now. His brother might be taking extra steps to escape justice. He may be taking extra steps to delete and erase traces and evidence.

“This is what the police should have done. Arrest and charge him alongside his elder brother. I am calling on the police to quickly arrest him and prevent him from escaping from the country. This is the ideal thing to do.”
