“The witness testified that Mr Kyari allegedly promised to reach out to him in respect of the missing persons and till date nothing was heard about them.
“The above orders are made in respect of three persons who were allegedly arrested and detained by the IGP-IRT detention facility.
”The whereabouts of Yakubu Danjuma, Ibrahim Daniel, and Choji Dung are still unknown."

The request for Kyari came after the panel's lawyer, Halilu Adamu, informed it that Kyari was in NDLEA detention.

Also, the force's counsel, James Idachaba, told the panel that the NPF can no longer produce Kyari since he was no longer in Police custody.

The panel had earlier ordered the office of the Inspector-General of Police to produce the named three victims before it.

Before this request, a Federal High Court in Abuja had ordered for the release of the mentioned persons but to no avail till date.
