Detained Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, has filed a suit against the Federal Government at a High Court in Abuja to challenge his continued detention in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.
An under-fire Kyari appealed that he has a chronic health condition, diabetes that needs urgent medical attention.
Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces.
His prayer was, however, turned down on Monday by Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court, who ordered that the disgraced police boss should put the Federal Government on notice of the existence of the suit he instituted against it.
In the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/182/22, Kyari, who is being held by the NDLEA over his alleged involvement in a drug deal, sought an order of the court to immediately release him and asked to be admitted to bail in liberal conditions.
His counsel, Cynthia Ikena, claimed Kyari is suffering from chronic diabetes threatening his life and, therefore, needed urgent medical attention.
But the judge ordered him to go and serve all processes he filed on the Federal Government.
Justice Ekwo held that all the averments and allegations made against the Federal Government were so weighty that the court must give the government the opportunity to hear from it before taking any step.
A new hearing has been fixed for Thursday where all the parties are expected to appear before him.
