Abba Kyari News: Why Buhari Govt may not release Kyari to FBI

Published

 

on

There are strong indications that the IGP Intelligence Response and Monitoring Team Commander, Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, will not be handed over to the US for criminal prosecution.

It was reported that the legal battle to extradite Kyari to the United States for trial for his suspected role in a $1.1 million Internet fraud would be fierce.

The DCP has already been told to form a strong legal team to contest and, potentially, obstruct the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s extradition request in court.

Ramoni Abass, alias Hushpuppi, and Kyari were among six individuals indicted in a $1.1 million international fraud scheme, according to an FBI criminal complaint filed in California’s United States District Court.

Abdulrahman Juma (Abdul); Vincent Kelly Chibuzo (Kelly); Rukayat Motunrayo Fashola (Morayo); and Bolatito Tawakalitu Agbabiaka are the other suspects (Bolamide).

Kyari, dubbed “Super Cop,” has been under fire after the FBI revealed a 69-page court record on Wednesday stating that he was under investigation for his apparent connection to Hushpuppi, who had pleaded guilty to fraud.

The FBI petitioned a US District Court in California to order Kyari’s detention for ten days in the case 2:21-cr-00203, USA VS Abba Alhaji Kyari, dated April 29, 2021.

According to a statement released by the US Department of Justice, Hushpuppi acknowledged paying bribes to Kyari to have one of his rivals arrested and imprisoned in Nigeria following a dispute over a $1.1 million fraud involving a Qatari businessman.

Hushpuppi urged Kyari to arrest “co-conspirator” Kelly Chibuzor Vincent after the two got into a fight over the $1.1 million swindles, according to the FBI.

According to the court filing, Kyari travelled to Dubai in September 2019 and was picked up by Hushpuppi’s driver.

On Saturday,  Ejes Gist News learned that Kyari, who had previously refuted the charges in social media posts on Instagram and Facebook, had been instructed to respond to the FBI indictment in writing.

Kyari was given a few days to present his defence, according to our source.

According to sources, the DCP was also encouraged to hire a powerful legal defence team to help him with the case.

“The battle promises to be long and full of legal fireworks,” a source said, “but it’s not clear that the Police authorities will willingly hand over Kyari to the US for trial.”

“Will the FBI allow any of its agents to be extradited to Nigeria to face criminal charges?

“Kyari has been urged to assemble a strong legal team to contest the extradition request, and the team is expected to begin working right away.”

Recall that Usman Baba, the Inspector-General of Police, had ordered an investigation into the charges levelled against the IRT commander.

The Police Service Commission had also stated that it, not the Police leadership, will decide Kyari’s destiny.

If found guilty of the claims, Kyari might face dismissal or demotion, as well as prosecution, according to the panel.
