The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) has disclosed that there is no attempt on the life of disgraced police chief, Abba Kyari. Reacting to reports that Abba Kyari narrowly escaped death as some inmates attempted to attack him, the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) said that the former Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, was safe in custody as there was no threat to his life.
The Service Public Relations Officer Mr Francis Enobore said this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja. Enobore said that it was necessary to address the issue following a publication by an online media organisation alleging Abba Kyari was attacked by his fellow inmates. According to him, the fake news peddler further stated that the authorities of the Service was considering transferring Abba Kyari to DSS custody.
He said “the story is false, reckless and mischievous. According to his words; “It is the handiwork of some jobless cheap recognition-seeking charlatans, masquerading as newsmen, lacking the intellectual capacity to interrogate what they conjure or hear before feeding the public. “For the record, Abba Kyari is one of the over 800 inmates in the location where he is being kept and he is safe, sound and there is no threat to his life as alleged by the media,” the statement concluded.
