On Monday, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, said that suspended Deputy Police Commissioner, DCP, Abba Kyari, is planning to flee Nigeria.
According to the NDLEA, Kyari planned to depart Nigeria to avoid being prosecuted for his crimes.
While urging an Abuja Federal High Court not to give Kyari bail, the agency sounded the alarm.

The agency claimed in a 21-paragraph counter-affidavit that Kyari would “escape and has the ability to influence with witnesses.”
On Monday, Joseph Sunday, the Director of Prosecution and Legal Services, revealed this when adopting the counter-affidavit before Justice Emeka Nwite.
Kyari and four former members of the Police Intelligence Response Team, IRT, were linked to an international narcotics gang by the NDLEA.
After attempting to bribe an NDLEA agent with $61,000 to enable the release of confiscated cocaine, the former IRT head and the four cops were apprehended.
