Home Court dismisses NDLEA’s objection to take Abba Kyari’s bail application

Court dismisses NDLEA’s objection to take Abba Kyari’s bail application

A Federal High Court, Abuja, on Thursday, rejected the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)’s objection to take the bail application of suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari.

NAN reports that Justice Inyang Ekwo declined the objection after counsel for the agency, Mike Kassa, informed the court that the respondent (NDLEA) was yet to be served with the bail application.

Justice Ekwo, who refused to grant Kassa’s request not to take the bail application, ordered lawyer to Kyari, Cynthia Ikena, to serve Kassa in the open court and stood down the matter for an hour.

Earlier, when the matter was called, Ikena told the court that the applicant (Kyari) had complied with the court order made on Feb. 21 to put the respondent on notice after the lawyer said she had a motion ex-parte seeking for bail for Kyari.

“Having complied with the order made on 21st of February, 2022, we are ready to move our motion,” she said.

Ikena told the court that the respondent had been duly served.

But Kassa said though the applicant counsel served him with a motion on notice, he was yet to be served with the bail application.

Ikena, who insisted that the application had been served, prayed the judge to confirm the proof in the court file.

After going through the court file, Ekwo directed Ikena to serve Kassa in open court and stood down the matter for an hour.

Recall that Kyari, through his lawyer, had, on Feb. 21, approached the court seeking for a bail and asking the court to enforce his fundamental human rights which he alleged had been breached by unlawful arrest and detention.
