Hushpuppi: Court dismisses suit to extradite Abba Kyari to U.S.

Hushpuppi: Court dismisses suit to extradite Abba Kyari to U.S.


The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, on Monday, refused to grant the extradition application filed by the Federal Government for permission to extradite the suspended DCP Abba Kyari to the United States.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a judgment, described the extradition request as “an abuse of court process” on the grounds that Mr Kyari was already standing a criminal trial before another court.


The attorney-general of the federation, Abubakar Malami, had filed the extradition suit, praying the court to grant the plea for Mr Kyari to face a criminal charge levelled against him by the U.S. government.

The U.S. authorities had applied to the federal government for Mr Kyari’s extradition about his alleged link with the international fraudster, Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi.

The suspended DCP is also facing a criminal trial on allegations of drug deals filed against him and others by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).


The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, Los Angeles, had recently confirmed that Hushpuppi would be sentenced on September 21.
