Federal High Court Rejects DCP Abba Kyari’s bail Application

DCP Abba Kyari wanted for drug trafficking

A Federal High Court in Abuja presided over, by Justice Inyang Ekwo has rejected an application for a bail which was filed by suspended deputy Commissioner of Police DCP Abba Kyari.



He (Abba Kyari) used health concerns as biases for his bail application, citing that  he was battling Hypertension and Diabetes before his arrest valentines day, and needed to be released so he can receive better treatment in his home.


Delivering judgment in the application today, the judge ruled that the bail application has been overtaken by events following an order of a sister court, granting the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)’s 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 Feb. 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.


He then adjourned until March 15 to hear Kyari’s application to demand for his fundamental right enforcement.
