Alleged Cocaine Deal: Abba Kyari’s Co-Defendants Get 2-Yrs Imprisonment
A Federal High Court, Abuja, has jailed two co-defendants charged along side a suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari to two years imprisonment each.
The convicted and sentenced two co-defendants were charged to court with Kyari by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency over alleged drug offences.
Delivering judgment on Tuesday, Justice Emeka Nwite said having admitted to have committed the offence preferred against them in counts 5, 6 and 7, Chibunna Umeibe and Emeka Ezenwanne, who are 6th and 7th defendants respectively, “are hereby convicted accordingly.”
The judge sentenced them to two years imprisonment on each of counts 5, 6 and 7.
However, the court held that the jail terms shall run concurrently, with effect from the day they were arrested.
Umeibe and Ezenwanne are the two alleged drug traffickers arrested at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu by the Nigerian police and handed over to the NDLEA.
They had pleaded guilty to five, six and seven counts preferred against them by the NDLEA.υ
