Again, Court Denies Suspended DCP Kyari Bail

On Wednesday, the Federal High Court in Abuja once again denied bail to suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari.

Justice Emeka Nwite, who is presiding over the case, cited Section 161 (2) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA), which gives the court discretion in bail decisions.

The judge determined that Mr. Kyari’s arguments for bail did not meet the necessary criteria.

Under Section 162 of the ACJA, bail is generally allowed for offenses carrying a maximum sentence of two years. However, the charges against Mr. Kyari carry a potential maximum sentence of 25 years, making bail less likely.

Justice Nwite noted that Mr. Kyari had previously been granted temporary bail on May 22nd to attend his mother’s funeral. After meeting the bail conditions, Mr. Kyari was released on June 1st.

At Wednesday’s hearing, Justice Nwite declined to extend the bail order but offered to expedite the trial.

The court also denied bail requests for suspended Assistant Commissioner of Police Sunday Ubua and Assistant Superintendent of Police James Bawa. All defendants, including Mr. Kyari, will return to the Kuje Correctional Center.
