Hushpuppi: Why Abba Kyari Maybe Extradited To US For Trial

NewsBreak observed that suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Abba Kyari, maybe extradited to the United States of America for trial, after two lawyers who were meant to stop the process before the law court failed to appear.

The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, on Wednesday, ordered the service of fresh hearing notice in the suit seeking to stop the Nigeria Police Force and the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, SAN, from arresting and extraditing Abba Kyari, to the United States of America, USA, for trial.

Justice Donatus Okorowo made the order after lawyers involved in the matter failed to appear in court.

When the matter was called up for hearing, no lawyer, either for the Applicant or the Respondent, was in court.

Justice Okorowo, thereafter, observed that though the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/854/2021, was instituted on Augustine 9, 2021, there was no proof in the court’s file that any of the Respondents (Police and the AGF), were served with the relevant processes.

“It is either the Applicant has lost interest in the case or the case is abandoned,” the judge added.

However, the court said it would, in the interest of justice, further adjourn the matter till February 10, even as it ordered service of fresh hearing notices on all the parties.
