This is the way to go. He can’t continue to wear that uniform. That is unacceptable. Doing so is a grievous indictment on the concioussnes of the entire nation. Abba has no moral justification to remain in the employment of Federal Government until he clears himself of the allegation. He can’t even arrest anybody now for any offence. He has his hands soiled.
This is a welcome development. The FG should go a step further to dismiss him from the force. Now if he likes he can hide wherever he wants, away from the prying eye of the FBI That is his prerogative.
To those who have lamented the nation losing the services of the super cop if he suffers any untold fate, they are simply naive. We cannott continue to build personalities instead of institutions and expect development.
I agree, Abba has been deligent and dexterous in his duties. He is indeed a super cop. However, in a saner clime, would have 100s of Abba. Let Nigeria build the institution and see how thousands of Abba Kyari evolve from this same ailing system. – Bayo Ogunyemi
