- The embattled former DCP is at it again and this time at the Defence Headquarters, Abba Kyari has refused to respond to questions being asked by the Force
- His reason was that he was not in a better place to write and answer questions regarding his involvement in drug deals
- Meanwhile, at the resumed proceedings in the matter, on Tuesday, March 15, the NDLEA, through its director, prosecution and legal services, Mr. Joseph Sunday, told the court that he was just served a further affidavit by Kyari’s lawyer
The suspended commander of the intelligence response team (IRT), DCP Abba Kyari, who is remanded in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), over his involvement in a 25kg illicit drug deal, has refused to officially respond to the query issued him by Force Headquarters.
This is even as the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday, March 15, threatened to strike out the N500 million fundamental right enforcement suit Kyari filed against the Federal Government.
It was gathered that the embattled detective was handed the query while in NDLEA’s custody, close to a month ago, Vanguard reports.
Rather than answer the query, sources disclosed that Kyari said he could not write from where he was.

The source said:
“That alone is a reply to the query. He stated that he could not write from where he was. He said when he gets out, he would officially answer the query, as he was not in the right frame of mind to answer officially."
