FBI Vs Abba Kyari: CNG Petitions US Govt, Demand Fair Trial

1 min read

The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG has written a petition to the United States Embassy in Nigeria seeking fairness in the matter between the Federal Bureau of Investigation FBI and suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari.

Recall that the FBI had requested for Kyari’s extradition to America so that he woul answer to charges brought against him in connection with a $1.1m scam involving a self-confessed fraudster, Ramon Abbas a.k.a. Hushpuppi.

However, the CNG in the petition signed by its spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, expressed worry over “the trajectory introduced around Kyari’s case.”

CNG said it specifically noted that the FBI might have breached the standard legal and diplomatic practice by neglecting to contact either the Nigerian High Commission in the US or the Nigerian authorities through the FBI liaison offices based in Nigeria before going ahead to file for indictment of a top Nigerian Security Officer.
