Court grants Abba Kyari bail after two years detention

A Federal High Court in Abuja has granted the former commander of the Force Intelligence Response Team, DCP Abba Kyari, two weeks’ bail after 27 months in detention.

The bail granted by the court is to allow Kyari attend his mother, Yachilla, burial rites.

Aside from that, the court on Wednesday fixed Friday, May 31, for the determination of his bail application in the trial over drug-related charges filed by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

This came barely two years after his arrest over alleged drugs engagement and other Sundry allegations.

It will be recall that his mother died in the early hours of Sunday, May 5, 2024, and was survived by 10 children (five males and five females), including Abba, who is the eldest son.

While Abba Kyari was not able to attend his mother’s burial, residents of Borno State turned out in large numbers to pay their respects to Yachilla, who was buried according to Islamic rites the same day.

The Police Service Commission had in 2022 suspended Kyari and two other senior police officers, Sunday Ubua and James Bawa, who were also linked to a cocaine deal involving the suspended deputy commissioner of police.
