The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has turned down the bail application filed by the detained and suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari.
Kyari is being held in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, over his alleged involvement in illicit drugs.
The Judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo said the bail application had been overtaken by the order of the court given on the 22nd of this month which permitted the NDLEA to detain Kyari for another 14 days.
Justice Ekwo declined to grant DCP Kyari to bail application and added that he would only grant an order to allow the applicant access to any medical personnel of his choice.
Justice Ekwo held that the court would wait for the expiration of the duration of the February 22 order and therefore adjourned untill the 15th of next month for hearing of the fundamental human rights enforcement suit filed by DCP Abba Kyari.
Kyari had on the 21st of this month, approached the court with an ex-parte motion and originating summons seeking bail and asking the court to enforce his fundamental human rights which he alleged had been breached by his unlawful arrest and detention.
He urged the court in the main suit, to make an order directing the NDLEA to pay him the sum of N500 million for infringing on his rights and to direct the Agency to tender a public apology in national dailies.
