Suspended The Nigerian Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, has pleaded not guilty to the accusation of drug trafficking.
He made his plea when he appeared in the Federal High Court in Abuja, where his trial on drug trafficking happened.
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, arraigns the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police before the Federal High Court.
Abba Kyari and four other police officers are facing allegations of involvement in drug trafficking.
But there was a twist: two of the four suspects apprehended with Abba Kyari pleaded guilty to counts 5, 6, and 7, which related to drug importation.
The NDLEA had said that Abba Kyari, the former Police Intelligence Response Team, or IRT, and his men, unlawfully tampered with 21.25kg of cocaine, which they had seized from two drug traffickers who were arrested.
After he pleaded not guilty, the prosecution counsel, the NDLEA lawyer, John Sunday, said they are ready for trial and they are expecting the announcement of the trial date.
He also told the court that they would get their proof of evidence by tomorrow at the latest.
He also wants the court to give them a date to review the facts of the case.
Meanwhile, Abba Kyari’s lawyer, Kanu Agabi, argued that they had filed an application for bail for the first and second defendants. He said they filed the application on March 1, 2022, on the 1st.
He argued that they should not review the facts of the case as it is not in the interest of justice when the trial is still going on.
But on Sunday, the prosecution lawyer said nothing was prejudicial against Abba Kyari to review the facts of the case.
