The suspended head of the Intelligence Response Team, DCP Abba Kyari, has been arrested by the Nigerian police.
It was gathered that Kyari was arrested alongside four others on Monday.
Kyari was arrested hours after National Drug Law Enforcement Agency declared he wanted over alleged drug links.
NDLEA had shown footage of Kyari trying to bribe one of its operatives in a bid to carry out a drugs heist in the country.
Recall that the agency had declared him wanted over alleged links to a drugs cartel.
NDLEA’s Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, had linked the former Intelligence Response Team, IRT, boss to a drug cartel operating the Brazil-Ethiopia-Nigeria illicit drug pipeline.
Babafemi, while addressing a press conference, also gave details of how Kyari approached its operatives to help in the cartel’s operation.
To further buttress the NDLEA’s claims against Kyari, the footage of him giving the operative wads of dollar bills was released.
