Kyari, Ubua and four other accused have been arrested and are being tried at the Federal High Court, Abuja for drug trafficking by the NDLEA.

The Attorney-General, Abubakar Malami has also confirmed receiving the report which he said, was subject to further investigation.

In the breakdown, NDLEA said, not less than N1. 4 billion passed through Kyari’s account while he was commander of the IRT.

However, Kyari’s deputy, Ubua, may have received far more than him as not less than N2.8bn was traced to his eight bank accounts.

The report said Ubua received a lump sum of N2.664 billion on August 15, 2019.

The drug agency has assumed that the total amount discovered in both accused bank accounts were drug money, given that their salaries and allowances couldn’t have got to such a whooping amount.

Also, the agency averred that some amount of money was connected to the sale of some illicit substances including Tramadol worth N3 billion.

A source told journalists that: “You will recall that the NDLEA is investigating an allegation that Kyari and his team seized a large consignment of tramadol in a warehouse at Amuwo Odofin in Lagos. The consignment was worth about N3 billion.

“The IRT under Kyari’s command seized these drugs and they are believed to have sold the consignment to a cartel afterwards.

It was around the time of this seizure that Kyari’s deputy received a deposit of N2.664 billion in his personal bank account.

Out of this money, he purchased FBN Insurance shares worth about N100 million.”
