Alleged Drug Deal: Court Refuses Abba Kyari’s Bail

Abba Kyari

Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja has declined to grant the bail application of suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari.

Justice Ekwo in a ruling, on Monday, said the application had been overtaken by events following an order of a sister court (Justice Zainab Abubakar), granting the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency’s (NDLEA) prayers to detain Kyari for another 14 days to enable it to conclude its investigation.

Justice Ekwo held that the sister court, which gave the order in favour of NDLEA on February 22, was a court of coordinate jurisdiction.

The judge, however, said he was inclined to hear Kyari’s fundamental enforcement rights suit with the urgency it deserves after the expiration of the 14-day court order.
