A COMMANDER of narcotics attached to National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, (NDLEA)’s forensic unit, Mrs Patricia Afolabi, said the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari gave her 24 wraps of cocaine to keep.

  Afolabi dropped the bombshell in her evidence as NDLEA’s first witness to testify in the hard drug trafficking charges preferred against Kyari before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, today.

  Explaining that part of her job specification involves receiving and conducting forensic analysis on drug exhibits, she told the court that she had on February 7, 2022, received from the forensic liaison officer of the agency, Abubakar Aliyu, one sealed transparent evidence pack containing 24 dispensing packs each.

  According to her, each of the packs contained a white substance measured at 0.5grams and the package also contained a requestform for analysis

  “From the analysis I conducted, which I labelled exhibit A-X, I found out that 21 of the exhibits contained cocaine, while exhibits H to G were found to be negative. I then issued an analysis report of my findings, which I signed and sealed. I repacked them as exhibits in a large envelope and addressed them to O.C. NDLEA Abuja,” she said.

  The court admitted all the exhibits in evidence without objection from the defendants.

  While cross-examining the witness, Kyari’s lawyer, Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu SAN asked her if it was true that every suspect in a drug deal must be present before analysis is conducted, a question the witness answered in the negative.
