Drug Trafficking: Court Rejects DCP Abba Kyari’s Bail Application

KanyiDaily recalls that he NDLEA had arraigned Kyari and six others defendants before the Federal High Court in Abuja on an eight-count charge, bordering on conspiracy, obstruction, and dealing in cocaine, and other related offences.

Four of the six other defendants are members of the police intelligence response team — Sunday J. Ubia, Bawa James, Simon Agirigba and John Nuhu.

The two others are alleged drug traffickers that were arrested at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu, Chibunna Patrick Umeibe and Emeka Alphonsus Ezenwanne.

When the eight-count charges were read to the defendants on Monday, two of the defendants, Umeibe and Ezenwanne pleaded guilty to the offences, but Kyari and the officers denied the offences.

Court Denies Abba Kyari Bail

Mahmoud Magaji, the lawyer who moved Kyari and Ubia’s (second defendant) bail application, prayed the court to grant his clients bail.

Counsel to the third and fifth defendants also prayed for bail on lenient terms.

But the prosecution counsel, Joseph Sunday opposed the bail applications, saying all the conditions for which the defendants should not be granted bail are inherent in the case.

The trial judge, Emeka Nwite agreed with the prosecution that the defendants are likely to interfere and undermine the trial.

Consequently, he refused the bail application and ordered an accelerated trial.

This comes one week after the Federal High Court in Abuja threatened to strike out the N500m suit filed by DCP Abba Kyari against the Federal Government.
