After 18 months in correctional facility in Kuje, Abuja, the former head of the Rapid Response Team, IRT, of the Inspector General of Police, Abba Kyari has been granted bail.
Justice Omotosho of Federal High Court 9, granted Kyari bail on Thursday with a N50 million bail bond and other conditions.
Kyari alongside some members of his team was taken into custody in February 2022 after the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, alleged tampering with drug exhibits.
He ruled that for the fact that DCP Abba Kyari and his team refused to escape when Kuje Prison was attacked on July 5, 2022, where about 90 percent of the inmates escaped, “it has proven that Kyari is ready to face any allegations against him.”
Besides the judge said all the “allegations are all bailable” and he is not “a flight risk”.
