NDLEA accuses Abba Kyari’s co-defendants of unruly behaviour in detention

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) charged three co-defendants in the alleged drug trafficking case against suspended DCP Abba Kyari and others with being rowdy while in its custody on Monday.

Joseph Sunday, an NDLEA lawyer and director of Prosecution and Legal Services, brought the charge before Justice Emeka Nwite of a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The occurrence occurred immediately after Justice Nwite set March 28 as the date for decision on the defendants’ bail applications, including Kyari, according to NAN.

Sunday, who informed Justice Nwite that ASP Bawa James, Insp. Simon Agirigba, and Insp. John Nuhu did not behave properly in their custody, requested that the court issue an order sending them to a correctional facility.

“The 3rd to 5th defendants were very unruly while in our custody,” he said, urging the court to make an order for their transfer.

He said if they were ready to undertake to be of good conduct, the agency would be ready to admit them back in its custody.

But counsel for the 3rd defendant (ASP Bawa James), Michael Mbanefo, expressed surprise at Sunday’s remark.

N. Y. Chiwar, lawyer to Insp. Simon Agirigba and Insp. John Nuhu (4th and 5th defendants), informed that the allegation was due to the difficulty of members of their families having access to them.

Chiwar, who undertook that the defendants would be of good behaviour, prayed the court to allow them to continue to be kept in NDLEA custody.

Ruling, the judge held that in view of the undertaking by their counsel to the effect that they would be of good behaviour while in custody, “I am minded to grant the prayer.”
