PSC delays verdict, orders investigation by different panel

The Police Service Commission (PSC) has postponed the verdict on the case involving suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DSP), Abba Kyari.

Until he was suspended by the Commission, Kyari was the officer in charge of the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT).

He had earlier been indicted by a report of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States in a case involving alleged internet fraudster, Hushpuppi, and was also investigated by a special panel set up by the Inspector General of Police.

The Report had earlier been forwarded by the Inspector General of Police to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice for legal advice.

Not satisfied with the earlier report, PSC also directed that further necessary investigation should “take half the time it took the Police to conduct the original investigation”, adding that the investigation should be carried out by a different panel.

The Commission took the decision at the continuation of its14th Plenary Meeting which ended in Abuja on Thursday, and was chaired by Alhaji Musiliu Smith, a retired Inspector General of Police and Chairman of the Commission.

The PSC at the plenary meeting also considered 20 pending disciplinary matters and five appeals and petitions from the Inspector General of Police and aggrieved serving and ex-police officers.

According to a statement issued yesterday by the Head, Press and Public Relations of PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, the commission also considered five promotion appeals.
