The Police Service Commission has announced the suspension of two police officers working under the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, in the Intelligence Response Team of the Force Investigation and Intelligence Department of the Nigeria Police Force.

The commission has also directed the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, to ensure the arrest of an Assistant Superintendent of Police, John Umoru, who is currently at large.

The suspended police officers are Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday Ubua; and an Assistant Superintendent of Police, James Bawa.

The decision was based on their alleged involvement in a drug deal being investigated by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.

According to a statement on Thursday by the commission’s Head, Press and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani, their suspension will take effect from Monday.

Also, the IGP was requested to suspend Inspector Simon Agrigba and Inspector John Nuhu in accordance.

Ani said the commission’s pronouncements on the matter were conveyed to the IGP in a letter dated February 16 and signed by a commissioner, Justice Clara Ogunbiyi, on behalf of the chairman, Alhaji Musiliu Smith.

The statement read, “The Police Service Commission has suspended Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday Ubua, and Assistant Superintendent of Police, James Bawa, in accordance with the provisions of the Public Service Rules 030406.

“The commission has approved the suspension of the officers until the outcome of the investigation into the allegations levelled against them.

“The commission also directed the Inspector-General of Police to note also that DCP Abba Kyari, who prior to this allegation was on suspension, shall remain so until the conclusion of investigations.

“The Inspector-General of Police was requested to place on suspension Inspector Simon Agrigba and Inspector John Nuhu in accordance with the Powers of Delegation.

The IGP is further requested to inform the commission of the arrest of ASP John Umoru who is currently at large whenever his arrest is effected to enable it to take necessary action.”
