The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday, ordered the transfer of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, and six others that are facing drug trafficking charges with him, to the Kuje Correctional Centre
The court had earlier rejected the application for bail filed by Kyari and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday J. Ubua.
The court also declined the request for bail by two Inspectors of Police – Simon Agirgba and John Nuhu.
They are charged with five others in relation to offences of unlawful drug dealings.
Justice Emeka Nwite, in a ruling on Monday morning, held that the prosecution has placed sufficient materials before the court to warrant the refusal of bail to both senior police officers.
Instead, Justice Nwite granted an accelerated hearing of the case.
