Drug Charges: Court Denies Abba Kyari, Accomplice Bail, Orders Accelerated Hearing

The Federal High Court Abuja has rejected the application for bail filed by suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday J. Ubua.

The two, alongside five others are standing trial on charges of unlawful drug dealings.

Justice Emeka Nwite ruled on Monday that the prosecution has placed sufficient materials before the court to warrant the refusal of bail to both senior police officers.

The judge instead ordered an accelerated hearing of the case.

The court also refused the bail application of the 4th and 5th applicant on grounds that the respondent (NDLEA) has been able to establish criminal responsibility against them.

The Court is currently hearing the validity to review fact in the case of the 6th and 7th defendant who had already pleaded guilty.

Further hearing on the Matter has now been adjourned till 27th April for ruling while the Defendants are to be remanded in correctional center.
