Again, Court Rejects DCP Abba Kyari’s Bail Application

A federal high court in Abuja has refused to grant bail to Abba Kyari, suspended deputy commissioner of police (DCP).

Inyang Ekwo, the judge, held in a ruling on Monday, that the application has been overtaken by events.

On February 14, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) declared Kyari wanted “over his involvement in a 25kg cocaine deal”. Hours later, the police announced his arrest and subsequent transfer to the custody of the NDLEA.

Kyari filed a fundamental human rights suit against the federal government, describing the drug trafficking allegations against him as trumped-up.

On February, he approached Abuja federal high court to seek bail on the grounds of ill health.
