Court refuses to grant alleged drug dealer Abba Kyari bail





On Monday, the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court declined to grant the bail application of disgraced police officer Abba Kyari.

Justice Emeka Nwite, in a ruling, held that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) had placed sufficient evidence before the court to refuse the bail request.

Mr Nwite also rejected the bail plea of Mr Kyari’s co-defendants.

The NDLEA, in its counter affidavit, held that it was inappropriate to grant bail to the applicant because of the facts and circumstances of the case.

The anti-narcotic agency described Mr Kyari as “a flight risk.”

It argued that if granted bail, the suspended DCP might jump bail.


The NDLEA, which said Mr Kyari might interfere with the evidence if granted bail, urged the court to dismiss his bail plea.

It argued that the medical challenges of the applicant were not beyond the capacity of the agency’s medical personnel.

The judge, in the ruling, aligned with NDLEA’s arguments and dismissed the request.
