Abba Kyari reveals those who are behind the alleged plot to destroy him
Meanwhile, Kyari had alleged that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) are behind his travails.
The embattled senior police officer made this claim when he appeared before a probe panel led by Joseph Egbunike, a Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) at the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
Kyari's claim was contained in a report submitted by the panel to the IGP which was in turn forwarded to the PSC.
According to Kyari, IPOB and its armed wing were after him due to the onslaught launched against them in the southeast.
