The Police Service Commission (PSC) has suspended Sunday Ubua, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), and James Bawa, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), both of whom worked in the Nigeria Police Force’s Intelligence Response Team under the embattled Abba Kyari (NPF).
This was said in a statement released by the PSC’s Head of Press and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani, on Thursday.
“They were also alleged to be involved in the current cocaine seizure and transfer to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency,” the statement read.
The PSC stated that the action is in accordance with Public Service Rules 030406 and that the suspension would last “until the completion of the investigation into the claims leveled against them,” which began on Monday, February 14th, 2022.
The commission also stated that Kyari, who is now in detention, will stay suspended until the probe is completed. PSC also suspended Inspector Simon Agrigba and Inspector John Nuhu in line with the powers of delegation.
“The IGP is further requested to inform the Commission of the arrest of ASP John Umoru who is currently at large whenever his arrest is effected to enable it to take necessary action,” the PSC said in another letter to the IGP, Usman Alkali Baba.
