Court Sentences Abba Kyari Co-Defendants To Prison

A Federal High Court, Abuja, has convicted and sentenced two co-defendants in the alleged drug trafficking trial of suspended DCP Abba Kyari and others, to two years imprisonment.

They are the two alleged drug traffickers arrested at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu, who pleaded guilty to five, six, and seven counts preferred against them by the anti-narcotic agency.

They pleaded guilty when they were arraigned earlier this year

Justice Emeka Nwite, in a judgement on Tuesday, held that having pleaded guilty to the offence of unlawful dealing in drugs, as contained in counts 5, 6 and 7 of the charge, Chibunna Umeibe and Emeka Ezenwanne (who are 6th and 7th defendants), are convicted accordingly.

Justice Nwite proceeded to sentence the two years on each of the three counts.

The terms, which shall run concurrently, would commence from the day the defendants were arrested by the NDLEA.

Earlier, they had prayed the Court for a plea bargain agreement.

At the resumed hearing, counsel for the NDLEA, Sunday Joseph, told Justice Emeka Nwite that two motions seeking a plea bargain in respect of Umeibe and Ezenwanne had been filed.

Joseph said the motions, dated June 13, were filed on June 14. Lawyer to the two defendants, E. U. Okenyi also concurred with Joseph’s submission

Also, counsel for other defendants, including Kyari, did not oppose the motions
