- Nigerians have been assured that the ongoing probe of deputy commissioner of police Abba Kyari would be transparent
- The assurance was given to Nigerians by the leadership of the National Drug and Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)
- The agency also said that all persons involved in the illicit trafficking which DCP Kyari is caught up in must be made to face justice
Barely 48 hours after the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) declared Abba Kyari, the suspended deputy commissioner of police wanted, more information on the probe has emerged.
The NDLEA contrary to claims in some quarters that the previously perceived super cop would go scotfree said no stone would be left unturned in the investigation and prosecution of the matter.
Daily Trust reports that the NDLEA said there would be no cover-up for anyone involved in the drug trafficking deal, irrespective of their class or status in society.
Further urging Nigerians and the general public to be patient, the agency assured that all grey areas on the interception of 25kg of illicit drugs at the Enugu Airport would be unravelled.

Also reacting to a statement by the police calling on the commission to ensure its officers involved in the matter are also made to face justice, the spokesperson of the NDLEA, Femi Babafemi, said there would be no cover-up.
“Having gone this far, and doing due diligence, what kind of cover-up are you talking about? Anybody that may be indicted would face the full wrath of the law.
"And this has always been the stance of the Chairman/Chief Executive of NDLEA, Brig. Gen Mohamed Buba Marwa."
