Court Rejects Alleged Drug Dealer, Abba Kyari’s Bail Request
Justice Emeka Nwite, in a ruling, held that National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) had placed sufficient evidence before the court to refuse the bail request.
NDLEA in its counter-affidavits to Kyari’s bail application held that it is inappropriate to grant bail to the applicant because of the facts and circumstances of the case.
The presiding judge, Justice Emeka Nwite gave the ruling on Monday and also rejected the bail plea of Kyari’s co-defendants.
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 Kyari as “a flight risk” and argued that if granted bail, the suspended DCP might jump bail.
NDLEA, which said 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.
