By Sanusi Alao
Indicted cop, Aba Kyari is Nigeria’s future Inspector General of Police, (IG) the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, (MACBAN) has said.
The cattle dealers said Abba Kyari indicted for a string of financial crimes should stand firm and defend himself.
The group accused the Federal Investigation Bureau, (FBI) of “conniving with Southerners” to pull down the police officer who has been linked with a main actor in heninous stealing and financial crimes.
In a statement made available to Irohioodua, Miyetti Allah condemned the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) for abandoning Kyari at a critical moment.
The Federal Bureau of Intelligence, (FBI) had conducted diligence investigation which indicted Kyari. Nigeria has extradition treaty with the United States promoting the demand by the US that Kyari be repatriated to the US to defend himself. Such requests are legitimate under the Mutual Legal Assistance(MLA) which binds Nigeria to meet her international obligations.
Some see the outburst of Miyetti Allah as further compounding the problem of Kyari at least in the eyes of many who have linked Miyetti Allah with violence in some parts of the country with many of the actors escaping the claws of law.
Miyetti Allah said the United States is not the most honest country in the world. “What they are doing to Kyari, they did it to Donald Trump and Al Gore.”
Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), who heads Nigeria’s anti crime crack unit’s been indicted by a US Circuit Court in California.
The President of MACBAN, Dr Garus Gololo said Kyari was a victime of conspiracy theory.
He said “it is a shame that the Northern Elders Forum and other groups in the region would fold their hands and watch while sons of the north who have distinguished themselves in different fields are constantly being persecuted and maligned at the height of their careers.”
Gololo listed other northern officials to have suffered humiliation to include former Chairmen of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission,(EFCC) Ibrahim Lamorde and Ibrahim Magu and former Chairman of the House Committee on Petroleum, Farouk Lawan.
He accused the United States of working with people.in Southern Nigeria to bring down “shining stars from the region using the media.”
Gololo also defended former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buraitai, who is now the Nigerian Ambassador to Republic of Benin.
He said “once they see that you’re a shining star, and that you’re from the North, they will want to finish you completely.”
