Daily Trust reports that the NDLEA on Monday morning had told reporters in Abuja that investigation revealed that the once-celebrated cop, Kyari, is a member of a drug syndicate operating across the globe.

“The agency wishes to assure 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 weight of the law at the end of the ongoing probe,” Babafemi said.

The embattled Kyari was fingered in a multi-million dollars fraud spearheaded by Ramon Abass, aka Hushpuppi.

The U.S. government had in July 2021, unveiled the charges against Mr Kyari and other alleged co-conspirators.
