Court dismisses application for Kyari’s extradition to US
Abba Kyari

The Abuja Federal High Court, on Monday, rejected an application filed by the Federal Government to extradite the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, to the United States of America to face trial over his alleged involvement with a notorious internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, who delivered the judgement, noted that the extradition application FG filed through the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, SAN, was incompetent and unmerited.
