The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) said it requested to detain Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, and six others under investigation for their alleged involvement in a 25-kilogramme cocaine deal for 14 days because there are complicated dimensions to the case.

Spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi, in a statement on Tuesday, said these dimensions would require follow-up and unravelling as the investigation is likely to extend to foreign countries where some people are linked to transnational drug trafficking activities reside.

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja and presided over by Justice Zainab Dimka Abubakar on Tuesday granted an application by the agency to detain Abba Kyari and six others.
