Abba Kyari wife slumps in court
THE Wife of suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, slumped at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday.
Ramatu Kyari collapsed to the ground as men from the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency led her husband and others away from the courtroom.
NDLEA officials and lawyers rushed her into one of the court’s offices for medical attention.
The development came after the presiding judge, Justice Emeka Nwite, postponed ruling on her husband’s bail application.
The judge postponed ruling on bail applications filed by Kyari and six other people facing drug trafficking charges, pending the outcome of the case against them.
The bail applications were postponed until March by the judge.
Justice Nwite 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 be held in NDLEA custody pending the outcome of the case.
Ramatu later emerged from the office, aided by some close friends and family members.
The NDLEA officers waited for Kyari outside the court for several minutes while she was being treated.
Kyari was charged with eight counts, including conspiracy, obstruction, and cocaine dealing, among others.
