We Are Negotiating With US Govt Over Extradition Of Abba Kyari – Malami

On Monday, Abubakar Malami, the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, said that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and the US government are considering the probable extradition of DCP Abba Kyari, the suspended chief of the Intelligence Response Team.

Abba Kyari is being investigated for his suspected participation in a $1 million scam reportedly carried out by Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi, and five others.

According to Malami, there are some plausible reasons for suspicion against Kyari.

This was revealed by the minister during a Channels TV interview on Monday.


“It is an issue with international and national dimensions,” Malami added. Actions have been taken; it is still a work-in-progress on a local and international level, and we are doing everything we can to guarantee that justice is served in accordance with the law, regardless of the individuals involved.

“When criminality is involved, Nigeria and US naturally work together when there are elements of the offences that have taken place in the diverse jurisdictions. So, Nigeria is doing the needful by way of supporting what America is doing for the purpose of ensuring that the cases are tried accordingly within the context of the American context of it. And then, eventually, if there is need for local prosecution, nothing stops it.”

“There are a number of problems that are happening, including the possibility of consideration for extradition,” the Minister remarked when questioned about the Kyari investigation. That’s when the notion of teamwork comes into play.”

When asked if the US Federal Bureau of Investigation had issued a request for Kyari’s extradition, he stated, “There may be a necessity or even the prospect of making such a request.”

“As far as I am concerned, the parties are discussing, the parties are collaborating, there are exchanges of correspondence from the perspective of investigation, from the perspective of extradition, and associated things.

“Reasonable grounds for suspicion have been established and that will eventually translate to the possibility of prosecution and conviction if indeed one is adjudged guilty by the law.”
