The Commander of the Police Intelligence Response Team, Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari, has debunked an allegation carried in an online medium purporting that operatives of IRT collected monies from the wife of a dead kidnapper, notorious for abducting victims for ransom in the South East.
In a response to what he termed ‘Unverified Lies from a Big Kidnappers’ wife’ that be easily verified and investigated, DCP Abba Kyari said, “We have Nothing to do with a Private account carrying Names Of People from the South East Flaunted by the Kidnappers Wife. In this BVN Era Bank accounts can easily be investigated and Cash movements and Owners can easily be traced and Arrested for Questioning.
“All lies from the wife of a kidnap Kingpin whom we refused to Negotiate With. The Family of the Kidnapper were Begging to Settle with us but we refused then they vowed to Spend money to Spoil our names as all their efforts to transfer the case out of our office failed.
“They now went to a Small media Outfit who are not ready to verify the Authenticity of the Stories from the Kidnapper’s Wife who Jumped bail given to her because of her Small baby and is on the Run.
“She is Vowing to Enjoy the proceeds of her late kidnapper Husband’s Crime as if there is no Laws in this Country. We are Suing (the media outfit) for linking our names to Some Fictitious/Unknown accounts carrying names of people from South East.
“I have never seen those accounts and they will tell the Court Why they are linking me to account I don’t know of.
“More over all the exhibits including 13 houses and 13 vehicles and the 100 Million Naira Cash we froze in the late Kidnap Kingpin’s Bank Account Using Court Order are Intact as Motion for the forfeiture of the properties and Money freeze in the bank account to the Federal Government are before Owerri High Court.
“We are not Relenting, We are used to this type of Baseless accusations/Lies coming when uncompromising Officers are handling cases of big and Billionaire kidnappers like this. Everybody Saw the Lies frm Evans Billionaire Kidnapper, His Lawyers and wife.
“The moment you refused to Negotiate with them, They will Sponsor lies against you in Anger. Had it been we agreed to Negotiate with the Family of the Death Kidnap Kingpin, nobody would have heard of this Case.
“Friends we have nothing to hide, We want Anybody or Organization to investigate this matter and See the truth. We are also surely going to Court against the Publisher of this False Story.”
