Nigeria’s Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has finally spoken on the Possible extradition of DCP Abba Kyari after his indictment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI.
News360 Info had earlier reported that Kyari fell from grace to grass after a US court ordered his arrest over his involvement with the disgraced fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abass popularly known as ‘Hushpuppi’.
During an interview with Voice Of America (VOA) on Thursday, Malami disclosed that though there is a bilateral agreement between Nigeria and the US, there are guidelines to be followed.
“Yes, we have a bilateral agreement between Nigeria and USA on extraditing anyone who commits any offense in any of the countries, be it Nigeria or the United States but there are guidelines and the guidelines are when the country writes a letter to the foreign affairs ministry, and the foreign affairs will send to the minister of justice…so the court will give permission for the extradition of anyone to go and answer some questions in United states based on the allegations.”
“I am not saying Abba Kyari will be extradited but the law will be followed judiciously before taking any action”, he said.
United States District Court of California has since issued an arrest warrant for Kyari.
