The head of the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari, on Monday noted that he is not moved by the allegations against him.
Kyari was accused of been involved in corrupt practices and executions.
A businessman identified as Afeez Mojeed, on October 29 petitioned the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry investigating the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Mojeed in his statement alleged that Kyari while in charge of SARS in Lagos in 2014 detained him for 14 days.
He further stated that the Deputy Commissioner of Police during his detention extorted him of millions of naira.
The petitioner further alleged that his car and other belongings were seized and sold by the operatives.
Kyari in his reaction on Monday described the allegations as blackmail.
He said, “The Social Media Blackmailers should continue with their Social Media Blackmail. We will continue smiling and doing our work.”
“We will never be demoralized or relent in fighting crimes and criminality in Nigeria. Our eyes will always remain on the ball.”
Kyari added that “our friends should not worry for one second”.
