A Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, under the ruling of Justice Emeka Nwite rejected the bail application of suspended DCP Abba Kyari and also rejected bail plea of Kyari’s co-defendants.
Justice Nwite explained that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) placed enough evidence before the court to refuse the bail request.
The NDLEA in its counter affidavit insisted that it was inappropriate to grant bail to the applicant because of the facts and circumstances of the case, describing Kyari as “a flight risk.”
The agency also noted that the suspended DCP might jump bail and interfere with the evidence if granted bail.
It therefore urged the court to dismiss Kyari’s bail plea, arguing that the medical challenges of the applicant was not beyond the capacity of the agency’s medical personnel.
