On Monday, The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency(NDLEA) has marked six residential houses and one plaza allegedly belonging to the former leader of the IGP Intelligence Response Team (IRT) , Abba Kyari, in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, for investigation.
It was gathered that the Assurance Plaza,The two-storey shopping plaza, located along the Giwa Barracks Road in Maiduguri, has about 100 stores while six other residential houses within the Maiduguri New Government Residential Area allegedly belonging to the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police had also been marked by the NDLEA.
The buildings were marked for investigation barely 48 hours after a suspected drug dealer allegedly linked to the N3 billion worth of tramadol intercepted by the then Kyari-led IRT team was arrested by operatives of the NDLEA in Lagos.
Recall that on February 14, 2022, Kyari was arrested for his alleged involvement in drug trafficking. He has since been in custody at the Kuje correctional center after his bail application was denied by an Abuja high court.
