There is no respite for Abba Kyari, a suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, and erstwhile Commander of the Police Intelligence Response Team at the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB), as a Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday, denied him bail on the drug charges preferred against him by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA .

Justice Emeka Nwite, in a ruling, held that the anti-drug agency had placed sufficient evidence before the court to refuse his application for bail as well as the request by Kyari’s co-defendants.

He ordered Abba Kyari and his co-defendants facing trial on drug trafficking charges to be remanded at the Kuje Custodial Centre of the Nigeria Correctional Service, NCS, till April 28.

 The NDLEA had in a counter affidavit on the defendants’ bail request, held that it was inappropriate to grant bail to the applicant because of the facts and circumstances of the case, describing Kyari as “a flight risk”.
