Nigeria: Former high-ranking police officer arrested on drug dealing

Abuja, Feb 16 (Prensa Latina) Former Deputy Commissioner of the Nigerian Police Abba Kyari was arrested accused of having ties to drug smuggling, the anti-drug agency reported.

Kyari had been suspended from his duties since last year due to the disclosure of information of the Nigerian drug kingpin Ramon Abbas, who pleaded guilty to money laundering and other serious crimes in a US court after his arrest in the United Arab Emirates and his further deportation.

Kyari and other four officers were arrested for their involvement in an illicit drug dealing case in collusion with a transnational drug cartel, according to a statement from the Nigerian National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.

The transaction involved 55 kilos of cocaine, according to reports.

The detainee, who denies the allegations against him, made headlines last year when he revealed a string of serious high-level crimes in his country.
