Abba Kyari has lamented the fact that her life could be in risk in the prison.
According Kyari, being held in the custody of individuals belonging to Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) who Kyari described as criminals, put his life in danger.
Kyari made this known through his lawyer Nureini Jimoh, when he asked to the Federal High Court in Abuja to consider his bail application initially denied.
In the document, that included the specifics of the suspended police officer’s arguments his life could be in danger by sharing the same prison with criminals he has put in jail, such as IPOB/ESN members as well as terrorists.
“At the heart of the matter candidates who are the head and deputy heads of the Intelligence Response Team of the Nigeria Police Force met stiff opposition, attacks and explicit threat to their lives applicants by the series heads (sic) of the criminal gang they had busted.
“There are no prisons or correctional center where the criminals who were detained in IRT under the direction of IRT under the supervision of the applicant as a result the constitutional as well as legal obligations as police officers can be located, in, and they have a significant probability of risk to their lives and the individuals.”
This isn’t the only Kyari to be criticized by IPOB for his petty squabbles.
He testified before an investigation panel headed by Joseph Egbunike, the late Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) He claimed the group as well as its security branch, ESN, were after him because of the savage attack directed at them from the South-East.
The Abuja court in March ruled that Kyari be held in a Kuje correctional center until the end of the case.
He was detained in police from National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on February 12, and was charged on March 7 for alleged charges of trafficking in drugs.
