By Kayode Sanni-Arewa

The of Appeal in has dismissed an appeal by Assistant Commissioner of , Sunday Ubua wherein he sought to be admitted to bail.

Ubua is an associate of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, being prosecuted together by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for unlawful drug dealings and other charges.

In a judgment on Friday, a three-member panel of the appellate court held that the appeal by Ubua was without merit and affirmed the ruling by Justice Nwite, delivered on March 28, 2022.

The March 28 judgement rejected Ubua's application for bail on the grounds that the prosecution placed sufficient materials before the court to warrant its rejection of the bail application.

Justice Stephen Adah, in the lead judgment, held that the appellant did not present any new materials before the court to warrant the court's departure from the earlier decision on the issue by Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal , Abuja.

Ubua is standing trial with Kyari and three other former members of the Intelligence Response Team, Force Investigation and Intelligence Department of the Police Force on charges bordering on unlawful dealing in drugs and attempting to tamper with evidence.
