The Federal government of Nigeria is in dialogue with the US government about the possibility of extraditing suspended Policeman Abba Kyari for his involvement in Ramon Abbas’ aka Hushpuppi’s multi-million dollar fraud.
In a recent interview with Channel Television, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) had disclosed this.
He stated: “It is an issue that has international and national dimensions.
Actions have been taken, it is a work-in-process locally and internationally and we are doing whatever it takes to ensure justice is done within the context of the law regardless of the personalities that are involved.
When criminality is involved, Nigeria and US naturally work together when there are elements of the offenses that have taken place in the diverse jurisdictions.
And then, eventually, if there is a need for local prosecution, nothing stops it. There are a lot of issues that are ongoing inclusive of the possibility of consideration for extradition. That is where the collaboration element of it comes into play.
Reasonable grounds for suspicion have been established and that will eventually translate to the possibility of prosecution and conviction if indeed one is adjudged guilty by the law.”
