NDLEA found N4.2bn in Abba Kyari, Sunday Ubua accounts

A sum of about N4.2 billion has been traced the accounts of DCP Abba Kyari and ACP Sunday Ubua, ENigeria Newspaper reports.


ENigeria Newspaper reports that both Abba Kyari and his deputy, ACP Sunday Ubua allegedly received the said combined sum of N4.2 billion in their separate bank accounts.

The above report was part of series of investigations carried out by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency – NDLEA which was also contained in the report the agency sent to Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, by the NDLEA.

While he was commander of the IRT, at least N1.4 billion moved through Kyari’s account, according to the drug enforcement agency.


However, Sunday Ubua, Kyari’s deputy, may have received even more than he did, as N2.8 billion was linked to his eight bank accounts.

On August 15, 2019, Ubua allegedly received a lump sum payment of N2.664 billion, according to investigations. The NDLEA is now investigating if the amounts traced to Kyari and his deputy are linked to the selling of illicit substances such as Tramadol worth N3 billion.

“You will recall that the NDLEA is looking into allegations that Kyari and his team recovered a significant consignment of tramadol in a warehouse in Amuwo Odofin in Lagos,” a source said. The shipment was estimated to be worth N3 billion.

“These drugs were recovered by the IRT under Kyari’s supervision, and the consignment is thought to have been sold to a cartel afterwards.” Around the same time as the seizure, Kyari’s deputy Sunday Ubua received a N2.664 billion deposit in his personal bank account. He used the money to buy N100 million worth of FBN Insurance shares.”
