As IGP Orders Immediate Transfer of Case to NDLEA, Charges NDLEA to Investigate indicted officers of the Agency

The Nigeria Police Force has arrested DCP Abba Kyari and four other police officers for their involvement in an alleged case of criminal conspiracy, discreditable, unethical, and unprofessional conduct, official corruption and tampering with exhibits in a case of illicit drug trafficking involving a perpetual transnational drug cartel. The arrest of the officers was sequel to pieces of information received from the leadership of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on 10th February, 2022. 

In line with standard administrative procedure of the Force, the Inspector General of Police ordered a high-level, discreet, and in-house investigation into the allegations. The interim investigations report revealed that two (2) international drug couriers identified as Chibunna Patrick Umeibe and Emeka Alphonsus, both males, were arrested at Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu on the 19th of January, 2022 upon their arrival from Addis Ababa aboard an Ethiopian Airlines flight ET917. The arrest led to the recovery of substantial quantity of powdery substance suspected to be cocaine from the two narcotic couriers. The operation which was intelligence-driven, was undertaken by a Unit of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT). 

Although the case and the two suspects were subsequently transferred to the NDLEA on the 25th January, 2022, the findings of the in-house investigation ordered by the Inspector General of Police established reasonable grounds for strong suspicion that the IRT officers involved in the operation could have been involved in some underhand and unprofessional dealings as well as official corruption which compromised ethical standards in their dealings with the suspects and exhibits recovered. 

Beyond this, the Police investigation also established that the international narcotics cartel involved in this case have strong ties with some officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu who are on their pay roll. The two arrested drug couriers confirmed that the modus is for the transnational drug barons to conspire with the NDLEA officers on duty and send them their pre-boarding photographs for identification, seamless clearance, and unhindered passage out of the airport with the narcotics being trafficked. 

The two arrested drug couriers also confirmed that they have been enjoying this relationship with the NDLEA officers at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport since 2021 and had in this instant case of 19th January, 2022, been identified and cleared by the NDLEA officers as customary, having received their pre-departure photographs and other details prior to their arrival in Enugu, and were on their way out with the narcotics when they were apprehended by the Police.

The Police investigations report also indicted DCP Abba Kyari, who had been on suspension for his alleged involvement in a different fraud case being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), for complicity in the allegation of official corruption, tampering with narcotics exhibit and sundry unprofessional conducts that negate the standard administrative and investigative protocols of the Force as well as extant criminal laws. It is to be emphasised that DCP Abba Kyari’s involvement in these allegation occurred while his suspension from service was subsisting.

On the strength of the findings of the in-house Police Investigation Panel, the Inspector-General of Police has ordered the immediate arrest and transfer of all the indicted police officers to the NDLEA authorities for conclusive investigation, while appropriate disciplinary actions are also being initiated against them by the Force leadership. The concerned officers include DCP Abba Kyari, ACP Sunday Ubuah, ASP Bawa James, ASP John Umoru (at large), Inspr. Simon Agrigba and John Nuhu. They have all been, accordingly, handed over today 14th February, 2022 to the NDLEA authorities. 

In so doing, the Inspector General of Police has also formally requested that the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency should ensure the identification, arrest and investigation of the Agency’s officers who have also been found to be colluding with the international drug cartel involved in this case towards advancing the anti-narcotics agenda of the federal Government.

The Inspector General of Police assures the public of his administration’s commitment to upholding the tenets and values of policing in line with the agenda of ethical regeneration, restoration of professional standard, enhancement of the anti-corruption drive, respect for the rule of law and inter-agency collaboration in the drive to stabilise the internal security order of the country.

How ASP ‘Too Much Money’ Allegedly Starved Seven Detainees  — Investigator (Damian Ugwu)

A human rights abuse investigator, who is also a researcher, formerly working with Amnesty International, Nigeria, Damian Ugwu, has taken to his social media handle to recall how an Assistant Superintendent of Police, John Umoru, otherwise known as Too Much Money, allegedly caused the death of seven detainees.

Ugwu recalled this horrifying encounter with a 23-year-old suspect, Miracle Opara, who was among those detained by Umoru.

Opara was arrested on February 13, 2017 in Awkuzu, Anambra State over a stolen phone and laptop, which he repeatedly denied knowing anything about.

Nobody would have known that Opara was in police detention, but for a detainee that was granted bail.

The released detainee contacted Opara’s family.

Meanwhile, the worried family had been frantically searching for him.

Umoru was one of the policemen arrested along with the suspended Commander-in-Charge of the Force Intelligence Response Team, Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency had accused Kyari and four other policemen of being complicit in an illicit drug related diversion case.

This latest development came just as Kyari is battling to extricate himself from a previous case of fraud and money laundering indictment instituted against him by the Federal Bureau of Investigations of the United States of America.

According to Ugwu, Umoru is a former Special Anti-Robbery Squad officer attached to the notorious SARS Unit in Awkuzu, Anambra State.

Ugwu stated: “I came across his name in 2017 while documenting the case of Miracle Opara, a 23-year-old young man who was arrested on 13th February 2017 in Awkuzu, Anambra State, over a stolen phone and laptop. Miracle described how he was shot in the leg by ASP Umoru and detained for four weeks without food or water.

“Out of the nine persons detained with him, one person was granted bail after paying N500,000, while seven others died of starvation. Here is an extract from my interview with Miracle Opara shortly after his release from detention.

“‘We waited for two days without any food or water. Then some of us started screaming from the cell, calling on them to give us water. Some of us started urinating and drinking our urine. One of the officers nicknamed ‘Too-much-money’ came to us and admonished us to save our strength that we had a long way to go. Because of this ‘admonition’ we increased our shouts, telling them that it was better for them to kill us than to starve us to death. They told us that they would love to watch us die one after another. We continued screaming, begging for water, then the officers went and brought teargas and sprayed it on us but the effect was not much. We continued wailing. … They brought another type of teargas, powdered teargas, tied it to a wrapper, and released it on us. They then locked the passage gate, leaving us to choke to death. It was terrible. All my fellow inmates collapsed. Some were foaming from the mouth. I was the only one conscious but the effect of the gas was bending my neck and twisting my two hands.

“’We were in that condition for three days. On the third day , they came to check whether we were still alive. When they found that we were still breathing, the teargas dried almost all the water in our system, making us very weak. …We continued begging them to give us water, even in drops, but they refused and told us that they would watch us die one by one. Some of us who had money hidden in our boxers begged them to collect it to buy water for us. Then the Station Officer came and asked us whether we came into this world with any cloth, we said ‘no.’ He asked us whether we would go in any clothes when we were leaving this world, and we said ‘no.’ He then left without saying any further words to us. It was then we realised that it was a death sentence.

“’After that week, one of us, Ifeanyi, was granted bail after the family paid huge money. We were now nine inmates left in the cell. Before the end of that second week, four of the inmates died- Okechukwu, Uchenna, Uchechukwu, and Chinedu.

“’The corpses were usually left with us in the cell till the next day before they were evacuated. During the third week, three persons also died -Ngirima, Victor Azubuike, and Ojoto. Each of them that died was left in the cell till after one day before it was evacuated, except Ojoto, whose corpse remained in the cell for three days and even started decomposing in the cell before he was removed. When they took the corpse of Ojoto, I heard their voices raging, ‘this one has decayed, there is no need taking him to Awkuzu, let’s bury him here.’ Then I managed with the little energy left in me and stretched and was peeping through the tiny window and saw where they buried his corpse beside the soak away pit at the back of their station, there in Neni.'”

Opara was saved from imminent death when his family contacted the Anambra State-based indefatigable human rights lawyer, Justus Uche Ijeoma, who intervened and facilitated his release.
