The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has purportedly found N4.2 billion in the bank accounts of former IRT Commander Abba Kyari and his deputy, ACP Sunday Ubua.
Abubakar Malami, Nigeria’s Attorney-General, was issued a report by the NDLEA alleging that Kyari and Ubua collected a total of N4.2bn from their bank accounts.

A total of N2.8bn was found in Ubua’s eight bank accounts, which suggests that Kyari’s deputy may have gotten even more than he did, according to the study.
Investigations claim that on August 15, 2019, Ubua got a one-time payment of N2.664 billion. Kyari and his deputy have been linked to N3bn worth of illegal narcotics, including Tramadol, which the NDLEA is now investigating.
In order to seize Abba Kyari’s property and assets, the NDLEA has filed a letter to the AGF.
Eight charges of conspiracy and obstruction, as well as trading in cocaine, have been filed against Kyari at Abuja’s Federal High Court.
