A Federal High Court in Abuja, has dismissed the fundamental enforcement rights suit filed by suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, against the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
Justice Inyang Ekwo dismissed the suit on Thursday after counsel for the NDLEA, Joseph Sunday, prayed the court that the matter be struck out.
When the matter was called, lawyer to Kyari, Cynthia Ikena was absent; as such, NDLEA’s Director of Prosecution and Legal Services, urged the court to strike out the suit.
The judge said he was aware that Kyari’s lawyer had sent a letter praying the court for an adjournment.
However, the said letter was not filed by the lawyer in compliance with the court rule.
