The wife of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, on Monday, collapsed at the Federal High Court in Abuja. His wife Ramatu Kyari slumped to the floor while men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency were guiding her husband and others away from the court compound.
The mother of four was hurriedly bundled into one of the offices in the court by NDLEA officials and lawyers for medical administration. The development followed the deferment of the ruling on her husband’s bail application by the presiding judge, Justice Emeka.
The judge postponed the ruling on applications filed by Kyari and six other persons facing drug trafficking charges that they are released on bail pending the determination of the case against them. The judge adjourned the bail applications until March 28.
Justice Emeka adjourned the bail application after Kyari’s lawyers and the prosecution counsel argued their positions for and against the request. The judge also ordered that Kyari and the six others should be remanded in the NDLEA custody pending the determination of the matter.
Ramatu later came out of the office and was assisted by some close friends and family members.
While she was being attended to, the NDLEA officers waited for Kyari outside the court for several minutes. Kyari was arraigned on eight counts bordering on conspiracy, obstruction, dealing in cocaine, among others.
