Drug trafficking: Court denies Abba Kyari bail




A FEDERAL High Court in Abuja on Monday refused to grant the bail application filed by suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari and his accomplice Sunday Ubuah.

Ruling on the bail application, Justice Emeka Nwite held that the prosecution had placed sufficient materials before the court to warrant the refusal of bail to both senior police officers.
