Justice Inyang Ekwo, Judge from a Federal high Court in Abuja on Monday refused to order the Federal Government to release the detained DCP Abba Kyari from the case of NDLEA.

The Judge rather ordered that the embattled cop put the Federal Government on notice of the existence of the suit he instituted against it.

Abba Kyari is being held by the NDLEA over his alleged involvement in drug trafficking. He claimed to be suffering from Chronic diabetes threatening his life and therefore needs urgent medical attention.

Justice Ekwo inclined to order his immediate release but ordered him to put the respondent on notice. The judge ordered him to go and serve all processes he filed on the Federal Government.

He held that all the avertments and allegations made against the government are so weighty that court must give the government the opportunity to hear from it before taking any steps.

he fixed February 24 for the parties to appear before him thereafter
