Court Refuses Abba Kyari Bail Over Alleged Drug Deal

The application for bail filed by suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday J. Ubua has been rejected by a Federal High Court in Abuja. They are charged with five others in relation to offences of unlawful drug dealings. Justice Emeka Nwite, in a ruling on Monday morning, held that the prosecution has placed sufficient materials before the court to warrant the refusal of bail to both senior police officers.Instead, Justice Nwite granted an accelerated hearing of the case.

In another report, an independent panel mandated the suspended deputy commissioner of police, Abba Kyari to appear before it on Wednesday, March 30, over a fresh petition against him by the three people. The petitioners had accused the self-styled Super Cop of allegedly arresting them unlawfully and violating their fundamental human rights. Ambrose Mairungu, and Blessing Dung, in a petition marked 2020/IIP-SARS/ABJ/205 alleged that three people – Yakubu Danjuma, Ibrahim Daniel and Choji, Dung’s husband – were unlawfully arrested, detained, tortured and received inhuman treatment by Kyari.

Dung, wife to the third victim had informed the panel that on December 17, 2019, a friend of her husband, Danjuma, had called him. She said the friend asked that her husband meet him outside their compound for a meeting.
