Kyari was declared wanted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on February 14, “over his involvement in a 25kg cocaine deal”. Some few hours later, the police reported his arrest and subsequent transfer to the NDLEA’s custody.

He applied for bail at the Abuja Federal High Court in February, citing his health as a reason.
