Court extends Abba Kyari’s detention by 14 days
Abba Kyari can be detained for 14 more days, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday.
Justice Zainab Abubakar on Tuesday granted on an application by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, for extended detention of suspended police officer Abba Kyari.
NDLEA’s counsel, Mike Kassa urged the court to grant the extension on the ground that drug pushing allegations against the suspect were complex and require that the NDLEA travel outside Nigeria to make some clarifications.
Kassa said the NDLEA’s request should be granted in the interest of justice, fairness, and for diligent investigation to be done.
The judge granted the order counting from February 22.
