•Embattled DCP ordered to respond to allegationsThere are strong indications that the police authorities may not hand over the Commander, IGP Intelligence Response and Monitoring Team, Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, to the United States for criminal prosecution.

It was gathered that the battle to extradite Kyari to the US for trial for alleged involvement in a $1.1m Internet fraud would be fought hard at the courts.Already, the DCP has been advised to constitute a strong legal team to challenge and possibly frustrate the extradition request of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in court.

A Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal complaint lodged at the United States District Court in California had listed Ramoni Abass, alias Hushpuppi, and Kyari among six suspects indicted in a $1.1m international fraud conspiracy.The other suspects include AbdulRahman Juma (Abdul); Vincent Kelly Chibuzo (Kelly); Rukayat Motunrayo Fashola (Morayo); and Bolatito Tawakalitu Agbabiaka (Bolamide).

Kyari, who is popularly known as ‘super cop,’ had been under fire since the FBI Wednesday released a 69-page court document showing that he had been under investigation by the FBI for his alleged link to Hushpuppi, who had pleaded guilty to fraud.In the case marked 2:21-cr-00203, USA VS Abba Alhaji Kyari dated April 29, 2021, the FBI asked a US District Court in California to order the arrest of Kyari for 10 days.

The US Department of Justice in a statement said Hushpuppi admitted during interrogation that he paid bribes to Kyari, to have one of his rivals arrested and jailed in Nigeria following a dispute over a $1.1m fraud involving a Qatari businessman.According to the FBI, Hushpuppi asked Kyari to arrest fellow fraudster, Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, after both were involved in a dispute over the $1.1m loot.

It was stated in the court document that in September 2019, Kyari travelled to Dubai and was picked by Hushpuppi’s driver.Sunday PUNCHgathered on Saturday that Kyari, who had earlier denied the allegations in a hastily written post on Instagram and Facebook, had been ordered to respond officially to the FBI indictment.

Our correspondent gathered that Kyari was given a few days to tender his defence.Sources explained that the DCP was also advised to get a strong legal defence team to assist him in fending off the FBI.A source said, “The battle promises to be long and full of legal fireworks but it is not certain that the police authorities would readily hand over Kyari to the US for trial. Will the FBI allow any of their officers to be extradited to Nigeria for criminal prosecution?

“Kyari has been advised to get a vibrant legal team to fight the extradition request and the team is expected to start working immediately.”Recall that the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba had ordered a review of the allegations against the IRT commander.

The Police Service Commission had also said that it would determine Kyari’s fate and not the police leadership.The commission noted that Kyari may face dismissal or demotion, and prosecution if found culpable in the fraud.Copyright PUNCH.All rights reserved.

'Will the FBI allow any of their officers be extradited to Nigeria to face corruption trial'? This case goes way beyond the NPF vs FBI. The outcome of this saga will have far reaching diplomatic ramifications than meet the eye A leader of the police force is alleged to have covered and shared the spoils of internet fraud and they want to defend him with currupt SANs?

He should be tried and jail here. Make efcc give him plank to start with. Kirikiri go make sense pay California! These people have destroyed what is left of a DEAD contraption called Nigeria.. If Nigeria will not extradite a criminal like Abba Kyari, because is a northerner and a cop.Why do they expect Benin Republic to extradite Igboho a righteous man, who confronted killers,rapist, kidnappers, bandits and terrorists from the North?

These people are full of shits! FreeNnamdiKanuNow & leave Sunday Igboho alone. Nigger area will soon go down, no Jupiter can stop it. Let the Fulani's enjoy it while it last. They can be British first son but soon the song will change.

A police officer that abetted a crime. He should go and claim his innocence that's how it should be.

We know the reason they won't release him jare, because he will rat out many of his co-conspirators. Criminals They should release Hushpuppi to come face judgement in Nigeria. When the time will Court will give oder/Judgement dey will disobey but when dey get into trouble dey will start looking for d best lawyers.

1) Now tell me how the policeman on the street will comport himself against extortion & intimidation of the civilians because they believed that their master is the bigger criminal among them. MBuhari is not fighting corruption, he's only fighting his perceived enemies........ Why Kyari wouldn't be able to step his foot in America & Europe again... 😅😅

U all criminals parading southwest or south south at easy but your turn now una papa deh hide am..well him small sha if Yankee want am una never reach to stop them

Nothing surprise Nigerians again. We were expecting them to be their usual self as always. After all, he is not a southern. Even if it is twenty years to come, Kyari must answer for his devilish act. You can only shield him for a while. They Wana see Crazy We all know why. The Police Force and PSC as legally recognized institutions will surely not want to arrest and handover Abba Kyari to FBI, for the simple reason that DCP Abba Kyari has been doing his underworld criminal activities, in conjunction with the top hierarchy of the institutions QED.
