Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, on Monday, said disgraced policeman, Abba Kyari, fingered in the Ramon ‘Hushpupi’ Abbas multimillion-dollar internet fraud, may be extradited to the United States to face charges.
In an interview with Channels TV on Monday, Mr Malami disclosed that the Nigerian government was collaborating with the U.S. government on the case of Mr Kyari’s involvement with Hushpupi.
“There is a lot of issues that are ongoing, inclusive of the possibility and consideration for extradition and associated things.
“That is where the collaboration element of it comes to play. There could be a possibility or perhaps a need for making such request,” Mr Malami said.
Probed further if the U.S. had requested for Mr Kyari’s extradition, Mr Malami said “As far as I am concerned, the parties are discussing and collaborating and there are exchange of correspondence from the perspective of investigation, from the perspective of extradition and associated things.”
Last week, Peoples Gazette reported that the Police Service Commission (PSC) was calling for an immediate dismissal and prosecution of Mr Kyari.
Two sources and internal memos outlined how the police regulatory body placed the interest of the Nigeria Police Force as an institution over Mr Kyari’s career trajectory and medals.
The PSC had maintained that, if not appropriately and firmly decided, the case could leave an enduring blight on Nigeria’s law enforcement.
