A Moment of shame as suspended DCP Abba Kyari and co-defendants in the cocaine offences trial going on at the Federal High Court in Abuja have pleaded guilty and begged the court for bail.
- Counsel to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Joseph Sunday, a Director of Prosecution and Legal Services has opposed the bail application for Abba Kyari and others.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, and his co-defendant, ACP Sunday Ubia, on Monday, pleaded guilty and asked a Federal High Court, Abuja, to admit them to bail.
Kyari and Ubia, through their lawyer, Mahmud Magaji, told Justice Emeka Nwite while arguing the bail application.
Magaji, who said the offences with which Kyari and Ubia are being charged are bailable ones, also said that the constitution gave the court the discretionary power to do so.
However, counsel to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Joseph Sunday, a director of Prosecution and Legal Services, opposed the bail application.
Also, counsel to other police officers in the matter also urged the court to grant their clients bail.
The matter is still ongoing as of the time of filing the report.
Meanwhile, a lady, identified as the wife of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, slumped and fainted on the ground shortly after trial Justice Emeka Nwite deferred ruling on applications that DCP Kyari and six other persons facing drug trafficking charge with him, filed to be released on bail pending the determination of the case against them.
She fell on the floor while armed operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, were leading Kyari and the others away from the court premises.
