Breaking: Court denies Abba Kyari bail

The Federal High Court sitting Abuja has refused to grant bail to suspended Deputy commissioner of police Abba Kyari.

Justice Emeka Nwite while ruling on the bail application, said the NDLEA has placed sufficient evidence before the court.

The NDLEA in its counter affidavits to Mr Kyari’s bail application, held that it was inappropriate to grant bail to the applicant because of the facts and circumstances of the case.

The 2nd applicant who is an Assistant Superintendent of police is under investigation for money laundering and may face charges on same.

Kyari, an highly decorated police officer, was arrested following accusations, that he belongs to an international drug cartel.

Abba Kyari, already suspended for allegedly helping self-avowed fraudster, Hushpuppi to launder his money in the US, is now accused in a cocaine plot.

Officials say Mr Kyari asked a colleague to help him siphon off part of a proceeds from cocaine haul.
