Assistant Commissioner of Police, Sunday Ubua’s request to be granted to bail was denied by the Court of Appeal in Abuja.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari’s supercop, Ubua, is an associate of Kyari.
Ubua is being prosecuted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for drug-related offenses.
A three-member panel of the appeal court determined on Friday that Ubua’s appeal lacked substance and upheld Justice Nwite’s March 28, 2022 decision.
Ubua’s application for bail was denied in the March 28 ruling because the prosecution had presented enough evidence to the judge to support its denial.
In the lead opinion, Judge Stephen Adah affirmed that the appellant should have provided new evidence to the court in order to support the court’s departure from Justice Emeka Nwite’s earlier ruling from the Federal High Court of Abuja.
Ubua is on trial with Kyari and three other ex-members of the Nigeria Police Force special squad for allegations of attempting to tamper with evidence and selling illegal drugs.
