Police on Monday evening handed over the suspended Head of the Police Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari, and four others to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for questioning.
Police operatives had earlier on Monday arrested the police officer after he was declared wanted by the NDLEA for alleged link with an international drug cartel.
The agency’s Director of Media and Advocacy, NDLEA, Mr Femi Babafemi, confirmed the development in a statement in Abuja.
