Bad news for Abba Kyari as court gives unfavourable verdict

During the sitting presided over by Justice Inyang Ekwo, on Monday, February 28, the court ruled that Kyari's bail application had been overtaken by events.

IPOB and ESN responsible for my ordeal, Kyari claims
Meanwhile, Kyari had alleged that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) were behind his travails.
The embattled senior police officer made this claim when he appeared before a probe panel led by Joseph Egbunike, a Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) at the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
Kyari's claim was contained in a report submitted by the panel to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, which was in turn forwarded to the Police Service Commission (PSC).
According to Kyari, IPOB and its armed wing were after him due to the onslaught launched against them in the southeast.
He was quoted to have said:
“It is a campaign to smear his reputation by members of IPOB/ESN who vowed to destroy him, due to his onslaught against them in the South East."
