NDLEA Traces N4.2bn To Abba Kyari, Co-Accused’s Accounts


The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has reportedly traced N4.2bn to former Commander of the Intelligence Response Team, DCP Abba Kyari; as well as his deputy, ACP Sunday Ubua bank accounts.


The drug enforcement agency is said to have sent the fresh facts to the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.


NDLEA had narrated how it filmed the moment  Kyari, was negotiating a drug deal for the release of 25kg of cocaine and offered $61,400 cash to NDLEA officer.


According to PUNCH, NDLEA said not less than N1.4bn passed through Kyari’s account while he was commander of the IRT.


However, Kyari’s deputy, Ubua, may have received far more than him as not less than N2.8bn was traced to his eight bank accounts.


According to investigations, Ubua allegedly received a lump sum of N2.664bn on August 15, 2019. The NDLEA is now working on the assumption that the sums traced to Kyari and his deputy may be connected to the sale of some illicit substances including Tramadol worth N3bn.


A source said, “You will recall that the NDLEA is investigating an allegation that Kyari and his team seized a large consignment of tramadol in a warehouse at Amuwo Odofin in Lagos. The consignment was worth about N3bn.


“The IRT under Kyari’s command seized these drugs and they are believed to have sold the consignment to a cartel afterwards. It was around the time of this seizure that Kyari’s deputy received a deposit of N2.664bn in his personal bank account. Out of this money, he purchased FBN Insurance shares worth about N100m,”
