The Police Service Commission says it has set up an in-house panel to study in detail the documents presented by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which indicted the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.
Kyari, a former head of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the Nigeria Police Force, was alleged to have been bribed by a suspected internet fraudster, Abbas Ramon, also known as Hushpuppi.
Daily Trust reports that immediately after his suspension, he was probed by a Police Investigative Panel set up by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu and headed by Joseph Egbunike, a Deputy Inspector-General of Police.
However, a fresh panel that was set up by the Police Service Commission is being headed by Bar. Tijani Mohammed, Director, Department of Police Discipline in the commission.
The panel was inaugurated by the Permanent Secretary/Secretary to the commission, Alhaji Abubakar Ismaila. (Daily Trust)
