DCP Abba Kyari has been granted bail by the Federal High Court in Abuja on money laundering accusations.

In addition to money laundering accusations, Kyari faces a principal charge of cocaine trafficking, for which he has been denied bail.

On Thursday, one of his lawyers, Hamza N. Dantani, said on his Facebook page that the court had granted Kyari bail on the money laundering accusations.

He stated:

”Alhamudullhi! Today, the Federal High Court in Abuja granted bail to Abba Kyari.”

mismob remembers that Kyari’s trial revolves around the $61,400 cash and 25kg packet of cocaine obtained as evidence and suspected of being used as a bribe to sway National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) operatives.

According to the NDLEA, Kyari allegedly attempted to bribe a senior agency officer with $61,400 in an Abuja restaurant to prevent testing of a portion of the confiscated cocaine linked to two people arrested for drug pushing.

He is also being investigated after the FBI of the United States of America indicted him in the case of fraud involving Instagram celebrity Ramon Abbas, nicknamed Hushpuppi.

Kyari was arrested and has been detained since February 14, 2022, after the NDLEA designated him sought for alleged narcotics connections.

Kyari’s bail plea was denied by Justice Nwite of the Federal High Court on allegations of cocaine trafficking.

The Court of Appeal also denied the bail motion.
