A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has declined to hear a fundamental human rights application filed by the embattled suspended self-styled “Super Cop” Abba Kyari over his detention.
The court presided by Justice Inang Ekwo, however, ordered Kyari to serve FG for an appearance on the next adjourned date
Abba Kyari who is a Deputy Commissioner of Police as at the time he was suspended from the Nigeria Police, had dragged the Federal Government before the court challenging his continued detention by National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.
NDLEA had detained Kyari over his alleged involvement in hard drug trafficking.
Kyari is asking the court to admit him to bail pending the determination of the substantive suit.
According to the ex-parte application, Counsel to the DCP, Ms Cynthia Ikenna, argued that her client suffered from chronic diabetes that was life-threatening and therefore needed urgent medical attention.
In a short ruling, Justice Ekwo declined to order his immediate release but ordered him to put the respondent on notice.
The Judge ordered him to go and serve all processes he filed on the federal government.
Justice Ekwo held that all the averments and allegations made against the federal government are so weighty that the court must allow the government to hear from it before taking any step.
He, therefore, adjourned until the 24th of this month for the parties to appear before him.
