The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has identified six residential houses and one plaza belonging to the former Intelligence Response Team leader, Abba Kyari.
The agency also identified a two-storey shopping plaza, called Assurance Plaza, located along the Giwa Barracks Road in Maiduguri with about 100 stores, and six residential houses in the New Government Residential Area of the state.
This is coming barely 48 hours after a suspected drug dealer linked to the N3 billion worth of tramadol intercepted by the then Kyari-led IRT team was arrested by operatives of the NDLEA in Lagos.
Speaking to THE WHISTLER on Wednesday, the NDLEA Spokesperson Femi Babafemi said the places were marked on Monday and “others are being marked in Abuja as well”.
When asked precisely the total of properties marked in Abuja, Babafemi said, “Not yet because more are still being traced. But in Abuja three have so far been identified and marked”.
Kyari is being investigated over his alleged complicity in a 25kg cocaine deal with a cartel of drug barons operating in the Brazil-Ethiopia-Nigeria network.
