Operatives from the Department of State Security and the Nigerian Police Force on Wednesday arrested the Commissioner for Insurance, Alh Mohammed Kyari, over allegations of fraud and financial mismanagement.
The operatives who were on joint operation were said to have arrived the headquarters of the National Insurance Commission where the office of Kyari is located at about 9am and arrested the CFI.
Kyari, who was putting on a dark blue traditional attire and a cap to match, was whisked away by operatives of the DSS in a grey Toyota RAV4 which was escorted by a white Toyota Hilux.
Indications that there would be trouble at the commission began at the early hours of Wednesday when the workers’ union shut the business premises of the commission and prevented access into the building.
The workers according to the Vice Chairman of the workers union, Mr Mahmoud Usman, were protesting what he described as incompetence as well as financial abuse.
