Concerned Advocates For Good Governance, a political pressure group, says it has consulted U.S based law firms to defend former Head of Police Intelligence Response Team, DCP Abba Kyari.
This is contained in a statement signed by the group’s President-General, Mr Olusegun Bamgbose in Owerri on Wednesday.
Bamgbose, who noted that the embattled police officer remained innocent of allegations leveled against him until proven guilty, called on well-meaning Nigerians to rally support for “one of the finest cops Nigeria has ever produced”.
He said contact with the U.S based law firms whose names remain withheld were part of efforts by the group to ensure justice for Kyari if eventually extradited to the U.S.
Bamgbose urged the Police Service Commission and the Inspector-General of Police not to panic while expressing optimism that Kyari would be eventually be cleared of the allegations.
“We have diligently consulted with about three notable law firms in the United States to give us their legal opinions on what can be done to formidably defend Abba Kyari.
“One of the leading firms has replied us and gone ahead to send us the indictment against Abba Kyari and other details which is about 26 pages.
