A federal high court in Abuja has again refused to release suspended Deputy Police Commissioner (DCP) Abba Kyari on bail.

The controversial former head of the police’s Intelligence Response Team (IRT) is being prosecuted by the federal government on charges bordering on drug trafficking.

Following the denial of bail, Kyari has to remain in Kuje Prison pending trial on the charges filed against him.

The examining magistrate, Judge Emeka Nwite, while ruling on Kyari’s bail request, said the grounds for the bail request had been addressed in the earlier request, which was denied.

The judge then set 19, 20 and 21 October for resumption of the trial.
