The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has said that there would be no cover-up for anyone that may be involved in the ongoing investigations into alleged drug dealing of the suspended DCP Abba Kyari, the erstwhile Commander of Intelligence Response Team (IRT) at the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB) of the Nigerian Police Force.

This is as the agency urged Nigerians to be patient on the ongoing investigations to unravel the mystery behind the 25kgs of cocaine intercepted at the Enugu Airport.

The spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi, confirmed to Daily Trust that, the commission would not cover up for anyone, no matter how highly placed they are.

When asked about the reported involvement of some yet-to-be-identified NDLEA officers in the Abba Kyari’s case, Babafemi said that the agency would not cover up for anyone.

“Having gone this far, and doing due diligence, what kind of cover-up are you talking about? Anybody that may be indicted would face the full wrath of the law. And this has always been the stance of the Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen Mohamed Buba Marwa.

“We appeal to Nigerians to let the agency complete its assignment and we assured Nigerians that the outcome of the investigation would be made public appropriately,” he said.

It was also learnt that the agency on Tuesday commenced the grilling of the embattled DCP Abba Kyari over his involvement in the Brazil-Ethiopia-Nigeria drugs ring and deal to compromise 25kgs of cocaine in the custody of NDLEA.

It was learnt that the agency is targeting to conclude its interrogations of DCP Kyari and his officers/collaborators by the end of this week.

Babafemi declined to comment on the grilling of Kyari, saying “investigation is ongoing.”

He, however, said, “We gave an assurance in our statement on Monday that ‘no stone will be left unturned to ensure that all suspects already in custody and those that may still be indicted in the course of the investigation will face the full wrought of the law at the end of the ongoing probe and that still stands. If anyone has concrete information or evidence, our doors are open.”
