Nigeria’s Inspector of Police, Usman Baba has approved the posting of Tunji Disu, a deputy commissioner of police (DCP) as the new Head of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT).

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.

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.

The IGP in a statement on Monday signed by the force spokesperson, Frank Mba, said the posting of the officer is on the heels of Management’s decision to fill the leadership gap within the IRT and refocus the Unit for better service delivery.
