The Civil Rights Advocacy Group—Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has condemned what it termed the ‘apparent secrecy’ of the findings and recommendations of the Inspector General of Police’s (IGP) Investigative panel that probed the indicted Deputy Commissioner of police Abba Kyari, accused in the United States’ Court of colluding and conspiring with a globally notorious advance fee fraud kingpin convicted in America known as Hushpupi.
HURIWA is therefore demanding from the IGP, Usman Alkali Baba, a public full disclosure of what the panel, headed by the FCID Deputy Inspector-General of Police unraveled from its official investigation, so Nigerians will be in the know since the country runs a constitutional democracy.
The group in a media statement by the National Coordinator Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf, said the silence of the Police Service Commission (PSC) on the matter says a lot about the credibility of the PSC, just as the Rights group wondered why it is taking the PSC almost eternity to investigate a straightforward case of indictments published in black and white and tendered in a Court of competent jurisdiction in the USA.
HURIWA said the inaction of the Nigerian State to the indictments of the Senior police officer by the Government of the USA will be interpreted to mean that Nigeria has become a totally failed state that accommodates impunity and criminality.
The Rights group also said the Nigerian police force owe Nigerians the obligation of ensuring that DCP ABBA KYARI clears his name of the global opprobrium which rubbishes the good name and global brand of Nigeria.
“The gentleman ABBA Kyari should rather be in a mad rush to go to the court in the USA to clear his name if he believes in his innocence “, the statement read.
