From Idu Jude, Abuja

A group, Concerned Nigerians, has appealed to President Bola Tinubu, to release Abbah Kyari, who has been under detention, to help solve the riddle of insecurity bedevilling the country.

The group, in a statement, yesterday, jointly signed by its National and Deputy National coordinators Segun Rotimi and Musa Shehu, said the latest attacks on a family in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) where the kidnappers have killed three out of the family they kidnapped is reprehensible, nothing that right under the watch of Mr. President kidnappers are having a field day.

The group said Satellite towns in the FCT are no longer safe as people are relocating to the city centres for fear of being kidnapped, just like what many other parts of Nigeria are facing.

Equally shocking, according to the group, are renewed attacks on passengers on the Abuja/Kaduna expressway and the Birnin Gwari expressway to Zamfara. Also, Plateau, Zamfara, Borno and many other places have been overtaken over by kidnappers.

“Mr. President, you are aware of one member of the Nigerian police who galvanised his colleagues and took the battle to them. He is DCP Abba Kyari.

“Kyari’s exploits were such that he received the highest congressional award which was bequeathed to him by the House of Representatives, headed by your current Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, during the 9th Assembly.

“We would not want to go into the details of his ordeal in the hands of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), which has to do with conspiracy, set-up and envy

“The court, even though, has failed to live up to its mandate by breaching its guidelines, we must add that your intervention in the manner the NDLEA has colluded with drug barons to take out the most cherished and priceless officer of the Nigerian Police Force is needed urgently,” the group said.

According to the Concerned Nigerians, the intervention would uncover those behind the drug traffickers the Kyari-led IRT arrested in Enugu in 2022, handed over with the drugs to the NDLEA while the NDLEA turned around to indict Kyari and his team in a deliberate set-up because the drug agency is working for some drug barons who have perfected their ways of bringing drugs into the country.

“Mr. President, seek full reports on the Kyari ordeal and immediately free him so he can solve these security challenges.

“He knows the terrain, the system, their strategies, and how to engage communities and their leaders which usually helped him to arrest even the most dangerous of these kidnappers and bandits.

“He is also the best in the use of technology and skills in the use of advanced technical intelligence to fight criminals.

“The Advanced Technical Intelligence Equipment the then former Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, acquired for the Nigeria Police is no longer being used optimally.

“Mr. President, you are the father of Lagos and now father to all Nigerians.

You, former governors Babatunde Fashola and Akinwunmi Ambode have seen first hand how this gifted super cop brought sanity to Lagos by defeating all deadly armed robbers and kidnappers that were terrorising Lagos and Nigeria between 2010 and 2021.

“Mr. President ask Vice President Kashim Shettima, former governor of Borno State on how the super cop arrested all Boko Haram terrorist commanders and coordinators involved in suicide bombings and ended suicide bombings in Maiduguri and North East.

“He was also the only person among all the security agencies in the country that arrested the Boko Haram terrorist responsible for the famous 2014 Chibok School Girls kidnapping in Borno.

“He arrested the first billionaire kidnapper in Nigeria, Evans, arrested the Ikorodu school children, Epe shildren and Ogun Turkish school children kidnappers.

“Kyari arrested biggest kidnapping and terrorist commanders like, Vampire, Halti, Yellow, Wadume, Ability, Onye Army, Dragon, Biggie, Urban Guarilla, Zakari Yau, Umar Abdulmalik, Abu Aisha, Abu kaka and thousands of other deadly terrorist, kidnappers, bandits that are terrorising, killing and kidnapping innocent Nigerians.

“Your administration would be remembered more on what it does in the area of insecurity than what it does in other areas.

“The economy may be buoyant but if peace eludes the populace, you will be credited as presiding over the worst forms of insecurity in the country.

“Now is the time to dig deep, think and act. Kyari is the answer. He has always been the answer. With Kyari, these pervasive insecurity challenges would be a thing of the past,” the concerned group said.
