The House of Representatives is on Thursday, June 11, 2020, hosting the deputy commissioner of police, Abba Kyari, as a mark of honor for his exceptional work in the fight against criminality in Nigeria.
The decision was part of the resolution adopted in a motion of urgent public importance on the need to commend officer Abba Kyari and his police team, as well as other committed police officers in Nigeria.
Leading debate on the motion before adoption, Ahmad Jaha from Borno State, said the resolve to recognise the young police officer was based on his extraordinary courage and patriotism in tackling high profile crimes in the country.
In the motion, Ahmed Jaha noted that Kyari was among the very few outstanding young officers of the Nigerian Police as Officer Cadet.
“The young officer served in several states of the federation, including Adamawa in the North East and Lagos in the South West. The gallant officer and his team recorded several successes in combating organised crime in Nigeria which include Arrest of the notorious kidnapper known as Evans in Lagos and the capture of the deadly kidnapper White VAMPIRE in Owerri, Imo state; arrest of the killer of the former chief of defense staff, Alex Badeh; arrest of several Boko-Haram Commander’s including bomb makers and those responsible for the kidnap of the famous Chibok girls,” Jaha stated.
Femi Gbajabiamila, the house speaker, who presided over the plenary session explained that having DCP Kyari in Thursday’s plenary was in line with the 9th Assembly’s Legislative Agenda of encouraging outstanding Nigerians who excel in their chosen fields of endeavor.
He said; “When I read the profile of that young man and the exploits he has made as a young police officer, I was impressed, and I think it’s only natural that we, in line with our legislative agenda and the practice of this Assembly invite Abba Kyari to be at the session this Thursday to formally receive legislative commendation from the House of Nigerians.”
Kyari successfully arrested the deadly Offa Bank robbers that invaded Ofa town in Kwara State, robbed five different commercial banks, and murdered over 31 innocent Nigerians including a pregnant woman, making it the deadliest bank robbery in Nigeria’s history.
