Court grants Abba Kyari bail after 27 months in detention

Abba Kyari

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday, May 22, granted the former commander of the IGP Intelligence Response Team (IGP-IRT), DCP Abba Kyari, a two-week bail. This comes after he spent a cumulative of 27 months in detention.

Kyari lost his mother, Mama Yachilla Kyari, early this month while in detention.

The court subsequently set 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), following his arrest over two years ago on February 14, 2022.

Recall that Kyari’s mother died in the early hours of Sunday, May 5, 2024, and is survived by 10 children, including Abba Kyari, who is the eldest son.
