The Federal High Court in Abuja has adjourned the bail application of Abba Kyari and others accused of drug trafficking.
In a ruling by Justice Emeka Nwite, the bail application was deferred till March 28 for Kyari along with six others facing drug trafficking charges.
Abba Kyari’s lawyers and the prosecution counsel argued their position for and against the bail, but the judge declined and requested they remain in NDLEA custody pending the determination of the matter.
Following the ruling, Ramatu Yakubu Kyari, wife of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police slumped in court, while men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency were leading Kyari and others out of the court premises.

Ramatu was quickly carried and rushed inside one of the offices of the court by NDLEA officials and lawyers for medical attention. She was later seen leaving the office with friends and family members.
Recall that Kyari was arraigned on eight counts bordering on conspiracy, obstruction, dealing in cocaine, and other related offences.
Other defendants arraigned with Kyari are four members of the Police Intelligence Response Team, Sunday J. Ubia, Bawa James, Simon Agirigba and John Nuhu.
