The suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Abba Kyari is not getting out of the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) soon.
This is as Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday (today) refused to grant bail application of the embattled DCP.
According to the court, the NDLEA has given sufficient evidence warranting to refuse Kyari bail.
The NDLEA in a counter-affidavits to Mr Kyari’s bail application told the court that it was inappropriate to grant bail to the applicant because of the facts and circumstances of the case.
The NDLEA affidavits read that:
The applicant is already facing extradition on charges of wire fraud.
The 2nd applicant, who is an Assistant Superintendent of Police, is under investigation for money laundering and may face charges on same.
The applicant has had dealings with criminals in line of his duty and may be inclined to engage them in interfering with the evidence.
The medical challenges of the applicant are not beyond the capacity of the NDLEA.
The applicant is a flight risk and might jump bail.
Following these submissions, the court refused the bail application of the 1st and 2nd applicants, Kyari and an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday J. Ubua.
