Cocaine Saga: Court Declines Abba Kyari’s Bail Application

Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja has declined to grant the bail application of suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari.

 

Justice Ekwo in a ruling, on Monday, said the application had been overtaken by events following an order of a sister court (Justice Zainab Abubakar), granting the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency’s (NDLEA) prayers to detain Kyari for another 14 days to enable it to conclude its investigation.

Justice Ekwo held that the sister court, which gave the order in favour of on February 22, was a court of coordinate jurisdiction.

The judge, however, said he was inclined to hear Kyari’s fundamental enforcement rights suit with the urgency it deserves after the expiration of the 14-day court order.

He subsequently adjourned until March 15 to hear his application on his fundamental right enforcement.

Kyari, last week, approached the court praying that the Federal Government be ordered to pay him N500million and also tender a written apology to him in two national dailies for the unlawful violation of his fundamental human rights.

He is further praying the court for, “a declaration that arrest and continued detention of the Applicant by the Agent of the Respondent without bringing him before a court of competent jurisdiction from 12th of February till date, is Illegal, unlawful and a gross violation of his fundamental right.

Among other demands, he also prayed the court to order his release on bail to enable him to take care of his deteriorating health condition.

Kyari told the court that he is suffering from “diabetes; high blood pressure and severe heart disease that may cause death.”

Efe Irele – People Told Me To Quit Movie Industry, That Couldn’t Act

Efe Irele, the Nigerian actress and filmmaker, has recounted some of the challenges she encountered in her early days as an actress.

She told Saturday Beats, “There have been many low points and cannot say which one in particular is the lowest. There were instances when people told me that could not act, that should quit the movie industry.

0;There was also a time someone told me that if did not suck up to certain people, would not grow. That saddened me. A lot of things happened but count them as part of the journey. I don’t need anyone’s sympathy because I never thought it would be easy and secondly, I chose to be an actor. I had other options but I chose this.”

Shedding light on why she set up a production company, Irele said, “Quite a few reasons. am a hands-on kind person and love to oversee projects. am also entrepreneurial, so the combination of both in this industry can only mean one thing— becoming a producer. It has been absolutely worthwhile so far.”

On the notion held by some that Nollywood is not lucrative, Irele said, “It depends on what angle you are looking at it from and also what you define as ‘lucrative’. Lucrative is relative. To some people, N500,000 is a lot of money, while some people would consider it to be peanuts.

0;However, we can always agree on the fact that we are still scratching the surface. There is a lot to be done in the industry from production to distribution. Let us say the industry is potentially lucrative.
