Any Decision To Deny Abba Kyari Bail Should Be Met With Resistance – Arewa Youths




I Didn't Operate Killer Squad, Never Received Money From Hushpuppi - Kyari

The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has raised an alarm over alleged attempts to tamper with the bail recently granted to suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.

Naija News reports that Kyari is on trial for  alleged drug trafficking.

The group condemned any actions by some individuals trying to undermine the concept of bail in the accused’s trial.

Speaking in a statement released by the President General, Yerima Shettima, the group argued that bail is the fundamental right that allows individuals accused of crime to maintain their liberty while awaiting trial.

Shettima maintained that Kyari was granted bail within the bounds of the law, and there was no evidence of him violating the terms of his release or obstructing the course of justice.

The group subsequently called for the preservation of the rule of law and the safeguarding of individuals’ rights to fair treatment within the legal system

The statement read in part, “Bail, when granted in cases of bailable offenses, enables the accused to resume their daily activities under specified court-imposed conditions.

“In light of recent events regarding the bail of Abba Kyari, it is crucial to emphasize that tampering with an accused’s bail should only be considered in exceptional circumstances.

“The interests of justice and the protection of the community must be key considerations when contemplating the restriction of an individual’s liberty.

“Courts must act in accordance with principles of fairness, transparency, and the rule of law to ensure that the rights of all individuals, including the presumption of innocence and the right to liberty, are respected.

“Any decision to deny Abba Kyari the full freedom to enjoy his bail should be met with resistance and challenge if it is believed to infringe upon his fundamental rights.

“The principles of justice and the rule of law are fundamental pillars of a democratic society. It is imperative that these principles are upheld and protected at all times.

“The right to bail is not a privilege to be granted or revoked at the whim of those in power, but a fundamental right that must be respected and safeguarded.”
