Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court Abuja has again refused to admit suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Abba Kyari, and four others to bail.
They are being prosecuted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on charges bordering on drugs peddling..
Kyari was arraigned alongside four suspended police officers including ACP Sunday Ubia, ASP James, Inspector Simon Agirigba and Inspector John Nuhu as 2nd to 5th defendants respectively.
Ruling on the bail application, Justice Nwite said the applicants failed to present sufficient materials and evidence to warrant the granting of the fresh application.
He therefore, reaffirmed his earlier ruling of March 28, 2022, ordering an accelerated hearing.
The judge subsequently fixed October 19, 20, and 21 for resumption of the trial, while the suspects are to be remanded at the Kuje Correctional Centre in Abuja till then.
