Suspended Cop, Kyari, Released from Prison After 27 Months



Suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, has been released from the Kuje Custodial Centre in Abuja after spending 27 months in custody.

Kyari’s release comes after a Federal High Court in Abuja granted him two weeks bail to allow him to conclude his mother’s burial rites.

The court had earlier set May 31 for the determination of his bail application in the trial over drug-related charges filed by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). Kyari was arrested on February 14, 2022, and has been in custody since then.

The spokesperson of the FCT Command of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), Adamu Duza, confirmed that Kyari was released after meeting his bail conditions. “DCP Kyari has perfected his bail conditions and has since been released today,” Duza said.

The former police officer is facing trial for drug-related charges and is expected to return to court for the continuation of his trial.
