Abubakar Malami, Attorney General of the Federal has explained how DCP Abba Kyari will be extradited to the United States of America.
NEWS MAIL NG reports that Abubakar Malami said though Nigeria and USA have bilateral agreement, there are laid down guidelines for extraditions .
Malami said this while speaking to Voice Of America, VOA. You would recall that the US court ordered Abba Kyari’s arrest over his involvement with disgraced fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abass popularly known as ‘Hushpuppi’.
“Yes, we have bilateral agreement between Nigeria and USA on extraditing anyone who commits any offence in any of the countries, be it Nigeria or 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 extradition of any one 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.
