Suspended super cop Abba Kyari, allegedly charged for drug related offenses, has denied the allegations against him by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA.
Kyari, who also claimed he is diabetic and hypertensive, lamented he has not been allowed access to his medications and restricted diet.
The embattled cop therefore, through his lawyer, Cynthia Ikena, in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/182/22, appealed to the Federal High Court, in Abuja, to give NDLEA directives for his release from custody on health grounds.
In reaction to Abba Kyari’s appeals, Justice Inyang Ekwo said, the “suit contained some averments that would require the response of the Federal Government (FG),” and that, he is of the opinion that, the “respondent should be put on notice.”
Justice Ekwo, thereafter, adjourned the case to February 24, 2022.
Recall that, on February 14, 2022, NDLEA accused Abba Kyari of his involvement in drug trafficking, to the extent of being a part of a drug cartel.
Before the February 14 incident, the senior police officer had also been accused of money laundering, involving the alleged fraudster, Abbas Ramon alias Hushpuppi, Hush, or Ray Hushpuppi.
