Police Panel Rules Against Abba Kyari’s Extradition, He Committed No Crime On US.

Abba Kyari may not be extradited as it could not be established that he committed a crime on US soil.

This is according to a report by a panel set up by the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali to look into an indictment on Kyari by the FBI

“The panel discovered that there was communication between Kyari and Hushpuppi, as well as infractions on the part of the cop, which is against the procedure of engagement of the police.”

The panel did not recommend the extradition of Kyari because it could not establish that the police officer committed any crime in the US.

“There is no proof that he committed any crime on the soil of the US to warrant his extradition.

He will be sanctioned by the appropriate authorities here. However, it is for the AGF to advise if there is a ground to extradite him to the US, which is very unlikely, the source said further.

Spokesperson of the Nigerian Police Force, Frank Mba, however, said that the IGP has forwarded the recommendations of the panel to the Police Service Commission (PSC) for appropriate action.

Kyari entered hot water after the indictment was made public.
Kyari was indicted by a US court for being a conspirator in a $1.1 million fraud setup by Hushpuppi against a Qatari businessman.
In response to the development, the IGP set up a special panel to investigate Kyari.
