Abba Kyari: Why Buhari should sack IGP Usman Baba – Omokri
A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, on Wednesday argued that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) should sack the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday night, Omokri said that the police boss deserved to be sacked for allowing a suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, to attend the wedding ceremony of his son, Usman, two weeks ago.
WuzupNigeria reported that the embattled cop had been indicted by the United States authorities over his alleged involvement with a notorious fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi.
Lately, Kyari was declared wanted and subsequently arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency over his alleged involvement in a cocaine deal.
Omokri said, “If Buhari had any shame, by now the IGP would have been out of a job for hosting a then suspended Abba Kyari at his son’s wedding 2 weeks ago.”
Omokri argued that the president had not done enough to fight corruption involving public servants as seen by the former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, who had his IGP, Tafa Balogun, arrested for money laundering.
Although this is not the case with IGP Baba, Omokri added, “This is Obasanjo’s IGP in handcuffs (referring to a photo of Balogun). That is how to fight corruption. Not hosting a known criminal cop at your IGP’s home!
“Exactly 2 weeks to the day he was declared wanted by the NDLEA, Abba Kyari was a guest of the IGP at his son’s wedding.
“A man that was meant to be under suspension? It is not only Abba Kyari that should be answering questions. The IGP has serious questions to answer.”
