July 06, (THEWILL) – A Federal High Court in Abuja has admitted the suspended DCP Abba Kyari on a N50 million bail in a case of asset declaration filed against him by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
The NDLEA had filed a 24-count charge, marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/408/2022 against Kyari and his two siblings (Mohammed Baba Kyari and Ali Kyari) for refusing to declare assets as requested by the anti-narcotic agency.
Ruling on the charge on Thursday, Justice James Omotosho admitted Abba Kyari on a N50 million conditional bail with two sureties in like sum.
Justice Omotosho added that the sureties must have property worth N25 million within the jurisdiction, among other conditions.
The Court, however, held that, even when Abba Kyari meets the bail conditions, the endorsement of his release warrant is subject to the outcome of a case in which he is being tried with four others on alleged involvement in dealing illicit drugs.
THEWILL reports that Abba Kyari, along with four others, is facing charges bordering on dealings in illicit drugs before Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
