BREAKING: Don’t Transfer Me To Prison, Suspended DCP Kyari, Beg court

Disgraced Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari, who is facing a drug trafficking charge, on Monday, begged the Federal High Court Abuja not to remand him in prison.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Kyari, through his lawyer, Kanu Agabi (SAN), asked the court to allow him to remain in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), pending the hearing and determination of his fresh application for bail.

Kyari made the request after he pleaded innocent to an eight-count charge the NDLEA levelled against him and six others.

He was docked before trial Justice Emeka Nwike, alongside four other police officers- ACP Sunday J. Ubia, ASP Bawa James, Insp. Simon Agirigba and Insp. John Nuhu, as well as two alleged drug traffickers who were arrested at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu, Chibunna Patrick Umeibe and Emeka Alphonsus Ezenwanne.

After listening to the arguments from both sides, Justice Nwike requested that the parties should formally address the court regarding the case next Monday.
