They Force Me To Pay DSTV Subscription Bill For Inmates - Abba Kyari

Alleged drug pusher and suspended police officer, Abba Kyari , has cried. He said he is being forced to pay DSTV subscription bill for inmates.

Nureini Jimoh complained that Abba Kyari experiencing harsh treatment in the prison.

According to the documents seen by The Gazette, the suspended officer had resorted to doling out cash gifts to inmates and paying cable television bills to avoid being attacked and killed by the vicious criminals he helped put behind bars.

“In a bid to mitigate the threats to kill the defendants/applicants, the chief warder advised DCP Abba Kyari and other defendants to advance some goodwill to the inmates by funding renewal of the DSTV subscription in all the cells for two months and make some cash donations to all the inmates group leaders as well as the church and mosque. The defendants/applicants complied on 29/03/2022,” stated the document.

 

Mr Kyari’s brother Mohammed swore an affidavit that contained details of the disgraced police officer’s argument.

Praying the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to review his bail application, the alleged drug dealer claimed his life was not safe as he had been accosted by a Boko Haram terrorist “Yasir,” on March 31, despite being held in a private cell.

 

Mr Kyari further expressed worry over the increasing number of threats from fellow inmates comprising terrorists and armed robbers he once arrested in the course of duty.

 

“The number of inmates in prison at the distance of the IRT is large, but most worrisome are those arrested for terrorism, vowing to revenge the killing of their members who died in the course of operations by the DCP Abba Kyari led IRT,” Mr Jimoh pointed out. “The resultant effect of placing the applicants together with the condemned criminals in the same custodial home will have negative impacts on police and other security personnel, the likelihood of endangering and exposing the life of the officers to criminals in and out of service.”

 

Mr Kyari’s previous request for bail application to the court was initially rejected.

 

Citing instances of insecurity such as the Kaduna-Abuja train bombing on March 28, the Kaduna airport attack, as well as rampant banditry on the road linking Kaduna to Abuja, Mr Kyari argued that Nigeria had become a hotbed of crises ever since his arrest.

NAIJA NEWS NG has learnt that the cattle breeders association has denied doing such. The group in a statement has said it needs more funds than aspirants and won’t use members money to buy expensive forms for a presidential aspirant.

The MACBAN’s national secretary, Baba Ngelzarma, stated this in a statement on Monday.

“As an association, we have far higher needs for money to assist our members being uprooted and killed in some parts of the country,” the Fulani herdsmen’s association explained. “MACBAN does not see any gain in this kind of profligate enterprise that adds no value to the million of our members who are wallowing in poverty as a result of banditry and cattle rustling.”

The statement also mentioned that MACBAN believed that politics should be left to politicians.

“We see no mileage in supporting any politician when we are overwhelmed by the crisis being faced by our members nationwide,” it stated.

The group said it will show support for any presidential candidate who expresses commitment to solve the suffering of Fulani Herdsmen.

“We look forward to seeing the manifestos of the various candidates and where our members fit in to determine who to fully support,” added the MACBAN statement.

The herdsmen also dismissed claims that it bought a N100 million presidential nomination form for ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

“The attention of the national headquarters of MACBAN has been drawn to a trending story in which we are being quoted as having bought a presidential nomination form for former President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2023 elections,” it said. “We wish to make it clear that MACBAN did not and will not buy any form for any candidate contesting elections.”
