Hushpuppi: Abba Kyari’s extradition suit fixed for June 2



The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Wednesday fixed June 2 to hear the extradition suit filed by the AGF.

The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Wednesday fixed June 2 to hear the extradition suit filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) against suspended police chief Abba Kyari.

Justice Inyang Ekwo fixed the date after counsel for the AGF, Pius Akutah, applied for more time to enable parties to respond to processes served on each other by Mahmud Magaji, lawyer to Mr Kyari.

Mr Akutah informed that though the court fixed Wednesday for hearing in the matter on the last adjourned date, he had a motion for extension of time dated and filed on April 19.

After the application was not opposed by counsel to Mr Kari, the judge granted the order as prayed.

The judge then adjourned the matter until June 2 for a hearing.

The hearing in the suit, on March 23, suffered a setback.

The development occurred when Nureni Jimoh, who appeared for the disgraced police chief, told Mr Ekwo shortly after the matter was called for the mention, but he was yet to be served with the AGF’s processes.

The federal government had sought Mr Kyari’s extradition to the United States to answer a case over his alleged link with the fraudster, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi.

Through the Office of the AGF, the federal government had filed the application marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/249/2022.

The suit, titled: “Application for the Extradition of Abba Kyari to the U.S.,” was dated and filed on March 2.

While the AGF is the applicant, Mr Kyari is the respondent in the application.

Mr Kyari was formerly the head of the Inspector-General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT).
