Usman Alkali Baba, inspector-general of police (IGP), has named Tunji Disu as head of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) — a unit once led by Abba Kyari, a deputy commissioner of police (DCP).

Disu replaces Abba Kyari who was suspended by the Police Service Commission (PSC) over his alleged fraudulent relationship with Ramon Abbas, better known as Hushpuppi.

The Police Service Commission (PSC) had suspended Kyari on the recommendation of the IGP over his alleged relationship with Ramon Abbas, self-confessed international fraudster better known as Hushpuppi.

Hushpuppi had alleged that he bribed Kyari to arrest and jail “one of his rivals in Nigeria after a dispute over a $1.1 million scam on Qatari business people”.

But Kyari denied any wrongdoing, saying he never collected money from Hushpuppi.

In a statement on Monday, Frank Mba, police spokesman, said the appointment of Disu “is on the heels of management’s decision to fill the leadership gap within the IRT and refocus the unit for better service delivery”.

Mba quoted the IGP as saying the IRT will remain focused in the discharge of its duties in line with national statutes and international best practices.

“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc (+), NPM, fdc has today, 2nd August, 2021 approved the posting of DCP Tunji Disu as the new Head of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT),” he said.
