The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, SAN, on Monday, stated that the federal government (FG) will extradite suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari to the United States (US) if it is required.
Recall Abba Kyari was indicted in a cyberfraud scheme orchestrated by Instagram big boy, Ramon ‘Hushpuppi‘ Abbas.
Speaking during a Channels TV programme on Monday, AGF Malami said that “reasonable ground for suspicion” was established against DCP Kyari in the report of a police panel that investigated corruption allegations that were levelled against him by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI.
He also noted that “it is a work in progress, nationally and internationally”, he stated, adding “we will ensure that justice is done regardless of personalities involved”.
“What I am saying is that locally and internationally, all hands are on deck. Nigeria is indeed doing the needful by way of supporting what America is doing, for the purpose of ensuring that the cases are tried accordingly, within the context of American aspect of it. And eventually, if there is need for local prosecution, nothing will stop it”.
Speaking further, Malami, said: “There could be a need for making request for extradition. Parties are discussing and collaborating, with exchange of correspondences for the extradition and associated issues”.
