Breaking : Court Remands Abba kyari



A federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the remand of suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari who is facing trial on drug trafficking.

Ruling Justice Emeka Nwite refused bail to Abba Kyari.

The court held that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has placed sufficient evidence before the court enough for it to refuse bail.

The NDLEA in its counter-affidavits to Mr Kyari’s bail application held that it is inappropriate to grant bail to the applicant because of the facts and circumstances of the case.

The affidavits read that:

The applicant is already facing extradition on charges of wire fraud.

The 2nd applicant, who is an Assistant Superintendent of Police, is under investigation for money laundering and may face charges on same.

The applicant has had dealings with criminals in line of his duty and may be inclined to engage them in interfering with the evidence.

The medical challenges of the applicant are not beyond the capacity of the NDLEA.

The applicant is a flight risk and might jump bail.

It is on these premises that the court refuse the bail application of the 1st and 2nd applicant.
