The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, dismissed a fresh bial application filed by suspended DCP Abba Kyari, on Tuesday.

Abba Kyari and four others are standing trial over allegations of drug trafficking preferred against them by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

“The court, in a ruling that was delivered by Justice Emeka Nwite, held that the suspended DCP, failed to establish why its previous decision that ordered his remand at Kuje prison pending the determination of the case against him, should be set-aside.

“It held that the fact that Kyari and four other police officers that are facing trial with him, did not escape when Kuje prison was recently attacked by insurgents, was not enough to prove that they would not jump bail once they are released from custody.

“The judge said the detained police officer failed to raise new facts in his latest application after being denied the earlier bail request.

Nwite consequently adjourned the matter until October 19, October 20 and 21 for trial continuation,” NAN.
