The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari and four others have been transferred by the police to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency barely four hours after they were declared wanted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

Babafemi named others brought to the custody of the NDLEA to include ACP Sunday Ubua; ASP Bawa James; Inspector Simon Agirgba and Inspector John Nuhu.
WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that Kyari was declared wanted by NDLEA over alleged drug trafficking.

“Five of the wanted suspects namely: DCP Abba Kyari; ACP Sunday J. Ubua; ASP Bawa James; Inspector Simon Agirgba and Inspector John Nuhu were driven into the National Headquarters of NDLEA in Abuja at about 5pm on Monday to formally hand them over for interrogation and further investigation.
