Abuja Federal High Court (FHC), yesterday, refused to grant the bail application of suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari.

 

Justice Inyang Ekwo ruled that the application had been overtaken by events following an order of a sister court, granting the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)’s prayers to detain Kyari for another 14 days to enable it conclude its investigation.

 

The judge held that the court, which gave the order in favour of NDLEA on February 22, was a court of coordinate jurisdiction.

He, however, said he was inclined to hear Kyari’s fundamental enforcement rights suit with the urgency it deserves after the expiration of the 14-day court order, and adjourned until March 15.
