As Nigerians await the outcome of the investigation of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in the alleged involvement of the suspended former Commander of the Intelligence Response Team of the Force Investigation and Intelligence Department of the Nigeria Police Force, DCP Abba Kyari and four members of the outfit, the Police Service Commission (PSC) has suspended two top operatives of the squad

The affected officers are Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday Ubua, who until the suspension was the second in command of the outfit and Assistant Superintendent of Police James Bawa.

This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Thursday by Mr Ikechukwu Ani, the spokesperson of the commission.

It stated that the affected two officers “are suspended from the exercise of the powers and functions of their respective offices with effect from Monday, 14 February, 2022.”
