DCP Abba Kyari, along with two of his siblings, were charged with failing to disclose assets to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), and the Federal High Court in Abuja has granted suspended DCP Abba Kyari N50 million bail in the case.
Kyari and his brothers Mohammed Baba and Ali were the targets of the 24-count complaint that the NDLEA had brought.
Justice James Omotosho issued a decision today, Thursday, granting Abba Kyari conditional bail in the amount of N50 million with two sureties in the same amount.
Among other requirements, Justice Omotosho said that the sureties must own property worth N25 million within the court’s territorial jurisdiction.
However, the judge ruled that even if Kyari satisfies the requirements, the approval of his release warrant is contingent on what happens in a related case in which he is being tried alongside four other people for allegedly being involved in narcotics trafficking.
Justice Omotosho had already granted bail to his two siblings.
