BREAKING: Court Refuses to Grant FG’s Request to Extradite DCP Abba Kyari to US for Trial

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday, excused an application the Federal Government petitioned for consent to remove the kept Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, to the United States of America, USA, to confront preliminary over his supposed contribution with a famous web fraudster, Ramon Abbas, prominently known as Hushpuppi.

The court, in a judgment that Justice Inyang Ekwo conveyed, held that the removal application FG documented through the workplace of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, SAN, was “uncouth and dispossessed of legitimacy”.

Equity Ekwo held that the AGF, Malami, SAN, being the Chief Law Officer of the nation, should know that the Extradition Act, precluded the giving up of a respondent that is as of now confronting preliminary under the steady gaze of an equipped court in the country.

The court asked why the AGF moved toward the court with the removal application when he was similarly the one that gave FIAT to the National Drug Law Enforcement, NDLEA, to arraign DCP Kyari on drug-related charges.

“The AGF couldn’t say that he didn’t know about the forthcoming procedure against the litigant which was placed against him by the NDLEA”, Justice Ekwo added.

He said the law was certain that Kyari, having been docked under the steady gaze of a court of skilled ward in the nation, “will not be given up until such case has been released either by his conviction or exoneration”.

Thusly, the court held that the removal demand was awkward and merited being excused.

It will be reviewed that the court had on June 3 held the matter for judgment, in the wake of hearing from FG’s legal advisor, Mr. Pius Akutah, and that of the troubled DCP, Mr. Nureni Jimoh, SAN.

While FG kept up with that it had met every one of the circumstances point of reference for the suspended DCP to be shipped off the US to answer a forthcoming lawbreaker accusation against him, then again, Kyari tested the legitimate skill of the removal demand against him.

Kyari, who is at present in jail care for drug-related charges, let the court know that as opposed to the claim against him, he had, a few months before Hushpuppi was captured, sent a letter to both the Attorney-General of the Federation and the Inspector General of Police, IGP, telling them that he had opened a channel of correspondence with the thought web fraudster, in encouragement of a continuous examination.

Kyari is needed in the U.S. to stand preliminary for scheme to commit wire extortion, tax evasion, and wholesale fraud.

A stupendous jury had, on April 29, 2021, recorded a prosecution against him with the endorsement of the U.S. Region Court for the Central District of California, after which a warrant was given for his capture.

Hushpuppi had before confessed to the claimed $1.1 million misrepresentation charge against him, even as the US Attorney’s Office for Central District of California, Los Angeles, uncovered that he would be condemned on September 21.
