The Police Service Commission, PSC, has ordered further investigation into the indictment of suspended DCP Abba Kyari by a report of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI.

DAILY NIGERIAN reports that there had been reports and counter reports indicting nad exonerating the suspended deputy commissioner of police from any wrongdoing as contained in the FBI report.

But on Monday, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, while appearing at the Channels TV program, hinted at the possibility of extruding Mr Kyari to the United States to face trial, suggesting that the Nigerian government had found the embattled DCP culpable of any wrongdoing.
