Kyari Refuses To Eat Prison Fod, Asks For Meal Cooked By Wife Instead


The former Commander, Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari, has refused food given him by the Nigerian Correctional Service after being remanded in prison custody on Monday, aso Naija reports.

The embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police was instead asked for the food prepared by his wife or other family members.

Kyari, who is under prosecution for drug trafficking alongside four other policemen, was denied bail by the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency had in the charge before the court, accused Kyari and the other four officers of conspiracy, obstruction and dealing in cocaine worth 17.55kg.

The trial judge, Justice Emeka Nwike, ordered the drug agency to transfer the defendants to prison custody, shortly after he denied them bail.

The court held that the NDLEA placed sufficient materials before it to warrant the refusal of bail to Kyari and his co-defendants -Sunday Ubia, Simon Agirgba, and John Nuhu, who are former IRT members.

Findings on Wednesday showed that Kyari and his co-defendants have been settling down in the custodial centre but sources said the DCP has largely kept to himself since his arrival on Monday.
