Even when boxed to a corner, DCP Abba Kyari still wears “the good guy complex.” You can see it in his writing, praising his supporters and those who stood by him, painting a very moving picture of a man who was saving the nation thereby the nation should not abandon him, subtly pushing the gullible unconsciously or may be consciously to come out and defend him, this manipulation is no different from what Hushpuppi and co-travellers were using to defraud some of their victims.
The fact is that Abba Kyari turned himself to a celebrity by using the social media and normally people shower so much love on celebs. He took all the credits for the job of the team and from time to time showed his team and praised his boys in a story he slowly crafted on Facebook and made himself the superstar of that story.
DCP Abba Kyari’s story is a typical Nigerian story and we all know the truth. They are no good guys here, not in the police. The police is like Soddom and Gomorrah of the Bible. Let me tell that story to those who may not have heard it or read it.
Three men appeared in Abraham’s RUGA on their way somewhere. Abraham treated them nicely, asking his wife Sarah to prepare what they would eat. After the hospitality one of them told Abraham that his wife would have a baby. Now Sarah was above the age of having a baby, she overheard the conversation and laugh. One of the men asked Abraham why his wife was laughing. Sarah was stunned. Though she denied it now both her and her husband knew these men were no ordinary men but angels of God.
After they were done they revealed their mission to Abraham. God has heard about the people of Sodom and Gomorrah and they were on a mission to destroy the cities. Abramam pleaded. He said what if they are 50 good guys in the city. The lord promised that if they are ten good guys he would spare the city. Abraham kept pleading until he brought it to 10 good guys and the lord agreed. The Bible recorded that the cities of Soddom and Gomorrah were destroyed. That is how we need to dismantle the Nigerian Police. The structure of the police makes it impossible for the police to have good guys.The police is a complete criminal enterprise.
We need to look beyond DCP Abba Kyari and look directly at the police. Like Sodom and Gomorrah the police as it is today must be destroyed, we need total reforms.
This Hushpuppi saga just exposed what we already know. If the FBI were not involved and this is local affairs, DCP Abba Kyari would have gotten away with it as Sheikh Pantami got away with supporting the biggest terrorists in the world and inciting mayhem in his domain, just like Akpabio got away with the billions saga in the NDDC and many more instances we hear of in Naija.
DCP Abba Kyari has never been a good as he advertises, it’s almost too good to be true. He was just a master marketer of himself, he is so good at it that when allegations about his other activities came up, people accusing him of corruption, we looked the other way.
