An independent investigation panel on fixed March 30 for the suspended DCP Abba Kyari to appear in a petition of alleged unlawful arrest filed by three persons.

The Panel is investigating the allegations of human rights violations by the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and other units of the Nigerian Police.

The petitioners , Ambrose Mairungu, and Blessing Dung in a petition marked 2020/IIP-SARS/ABJ/205 alleged that Yakubu Danjuma, Ibrahim Daniel and Choji, Dung’s husband were unlawfully arrest, detained, tortured and received inhuman treatment by Kyari.

The panel on March 11 ordered the Chairman, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), retired Brig.-Gen. Buba Marwa to produce Kyari on March 22 to defend himself.

However, in response to that order, an administrative letter was written to the chairman of the panel by Mr Abdullahi Haruna, SAN, counsel to Kyari.

He is requesting that all petitions where Kyari’s name was mentioned be made available to enable him  study it and respond appropriately.

He therefore prayed the panel to afford him with the proceedings on such cases and prayed for a grace of two months.
