Alleged Drug Deal: Court Denies Abba Kyari, Co-defendants Bail

 

A Federal High Court in Abuja has denied the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday Ubua, bail.

The former Commander of the Intelligence Response (IRT) commander and his team member had filed a bail application before the court.

This was after the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/57/2022, had charged Kyari and four others for alleged involvement in drug dealings.

Others charged are Bawa James, Simon Agirigba, John Nuhu, Chibunna Patrick Umeibe and Emeka Alphonsus Ezenwanne.

Upon arraignment, Kyari and four other defendants pleaded not guilty, while the sixth and seventh defendants pleaded guilty and begged the court to “have mercy”.

In a ruling on Monday morning, Justice Emeka Nwite held that the prosecution has placed sufficient materials before the court to warrant the refusal of bail to both senior police officers.

The judge also rejected the bail applications of Inspector Simon Agirgba; Inspector, John Nuhu.

Justice Nwite ruled that their bail application were denied after considering the affidavit evidence supplied by parties and proof of evidence.

The judge said he was convinced that the prosecution has successfully raised a reasonable presumption of criminal responsibility on the part of the defendants.

The presiding judge, however, granted an accelerated hearing of the case.
