A Federal High Court in Abuja refused the new bail plea made by suspended DCP Abba Kyari on Tuesday.
In a verdict, Justice Emeka Nwite determined that the suspended DCP had failed to provide sufficient evidence to overturn the prior decision that had ordered his detention at Kuje Prison until the outcome of the prosecution against him.
“The defendants have still not presented sufficient materials before me to warrant the grant of the fresh applications. Consequently, the applications are refused and my former order for accelerated trial is hereby sustained”, the trial Judge held.
Following the terrorist attack on Kuje Correctional Centre, which resulted in the release of numerous of their inmates, Kyari appealed to the court for another bail.
However, the case was adjourned for trial on October 19, October 20, and October 21.
