Abba Kyari: Extradition fate revealed August 29

A Federal High Court in Abuja has scheduled August 29 as judgment day for the extradition proceedings involving suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari.

Justice Inyang Ekwo announced the date yesterday 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).

John claimed that the AGF did not comply with the requirements for extradition under the Extradition Act, and as such the application was incompetent.

He argued that there is no sufficient cause to warrant the extradition of his client, adding that the three offenses, including wire and mail frauds, for which Kyari was to be extradited to the United States (US) were not extraditable.

John urged the court to dismiss the application seeking to extradite his client.

Lawyer to the AGF, Pius Akutah, argued otherwise, insisting that the AGF has complied with all requirements for an extradition process.
