Mohammed O. Taoheed reports,
Reports reaching Track News Nigeria has it that a Federal High Court in Abuja has rejected the extradition application filed by the Federal Government of Nigeria for the order to extradite Abba Kyari, a suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) to the United States of America (USA).
On the grounds that Kyari was already standing a criminal trial before a Nigerian court, Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a judgment on Monday held that the extradition application was an abuse of court process.
Recall that the US authorities had applied to the Nigerian government for Kyari’s extradition in relation to his alleged link with suspected international fraudster, Ramon Abbas (popularly known as Hushpuppi).
As reported, the United States Attorney’s Office for Central District of California in Los Angeles, confirmed last week, that Hushpuppi will be sentenced on September 21, 2022.
