Abba Kyari granted bail

Written by on May 23, 2024

The Federal High Court, Abuja Division, has admitted a former Commander of the Intelligence Response Team of the Nigeria police, Abba Kyari, to bail after over two years in detention.


Mr Kyari and his co-defendants face eight charges of conspiracy, illegal dealing in cocaine, importation of cocaine and obstruction.


The trial judge, Emeka Nwite, had on two occasions denied Mr Kyari and his co-defendants bail on the grounds that they failed to provide cogent reasons to warrant bail.


But on Tuesday, reprieve came Mr Kyari’s way when the judge granted him bail to enable him to attend his mother’s funeral rites in Borno State.


In granting Mr Kyari’s temporary release from the Kuje Correctional Centre in Abuja where he is being held, the judge said his bail must not exceed two weeks.
