Alleged drug deal: Court bars lawyers, journalists from covering Abba Kyari’s trial
Journalists covering the ongoing trial of suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari and other co-defendants were denied access to Court 10 of the Federal High Court in Abuja, where the proceedings were taking place.
