Abba Kyari has reportedly been rejecting food given him by the Nigerian Correctional Service after being remanded in prison custody on Monday, March 27.
The suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, who is being prosecuted for drug trafficking, was denied bail by the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
The trial judge, Justice Emeka Nwike, then ordered NDLEA to transfer Kyari and the four other policemen on trial with him to prison custody.
Since his remand, Kyari has refused to eat prison food, opting instead for food prepared by his wife or other family members.
Kyari and his co-defendants have been settling down in the custodial centre but sources said the DCP has largely kept to himself since his arrival on Monday, according to Punch.
