A drama played out as a lady, identified as wife of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, on Monday, slumped at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
She slumped on the ground shortly after trial Justice Emeka Nwite deferred ruling on applications that DCP Kyari and six other persons facing drug trafficking charge with him, filed to be released on bail pending the determination of the case against them.
The middle aged woman, who wore a black Hijab, fell on the floor while armed operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, were leading Kyari and the others away from the court premises.
Sympathizers tried to revive her and some of them tried to secure an inhaler for her, even as one of the women that accompanied her to the court, hinted that she was asthmatic.
The NDLEA had on Monday, urged the court to deny Kyari and all the other Defendants bail.
It told the court that Kyari, who hitherto headed the Police Intelligence Response Team, IRT, would jump bail and made himself unavailable for trial, should he be released from custody.
