~ Abba Kyari’s Extradition Case ~
A Federal High Court in Abuja has set a date to give judgement on Abba Kyari’s extradition suit.
The court set August 29 for ruling on the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP)’s case.
Justice Inyang Ekwo announced the date on Friday after lawyers to parties made their final submissions.
Lawyer to Kyari, Nureini Jimoh (SAN) faulted the extradition application filed by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and prayed the court to reject it.
Lawyer to the AGF, Pius Akutah argued otherwise, insisting that the AGF has complied with all necessary requirements for an extradition process.
Akutah prayed the court to allow the application and order the AGF to surrender Kyari as requested by the United States (US).
The US requested the Nigerian authorities to surrender Kyari in view of his alleged link with international fraud suspect, Abbas Ramon (a.k.a Hushpuppi).
