The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, on Sunday, reacted to the purported move by the Federal Bureau of Investigations, FBI to arrest and extradite Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.
AYCF issued the warning while berating the United States, court that ordered the arrest of Kyari.
In a statement signed by the group’s National President, Alhaji Yerima Shettima, AYCF sounded a note warning that “nothing must happen to him( DCP Kyari)”.
The statement reads: “We rejected the purported plan by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, to arrest DCP Kyari. The move by the FBI is totally unacceptable, a slap on the sensibility of our compatriots and ridicule on one of our finest crack detectives.
“We will keep a tap on the happenings in the matter, stressing that there was no justification for “singling out one of Nigeria’s most effective and efficient police officers for castigation.
“Arewa Youths urged all Nigerians who are truly patriotic to stand behind a man who has made an unrivalled mark on the sands of time by diligently serving his fatherland.”
“We also called on relevant stakeholders in the country, especially civil society organizations to “rally round this officer who risked his life in multiple operations across Nigeria, a fact proved many times through BBC news coverage of such operations.
“While we are conscious of our sovereignty as a nation, we demand justice for a man with unrivalled records of detective capabilities in the recent history of Nigeria.”
