Suit To Extradite Abba Kyari to US Stalled


The suit seeking to extradite suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari has been stalled.

The case was stalled on Wednesday following commencement of the suit. Recall that the extradition was filed by the Attorney General of the Federal (AGF) at the Federal High Court in Abuja by the AGF. At the mention of the case on Wednesday, lawyer to Kyari, Nureini Jimoh (SAN), told the court that his client was not yet served with the extradition application filed by the AGF. AGF’s lawyer, Pius Akutah, the Head of the Central Authority Unit (CAU) at the Federal Ministry of Justice, confirmed that the applicant was yet to effect service on the respondent. Akutah said the applicant could not serve before now because of Kyari’s involvement with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA). He assured the court that the applicant would effect service on the respondent (Kyari) by March 24 and prayed the court for an adjournment. Jimoh, who did not object to the application for adjournment, said he was entitled, under the court’s rules to, 14 days from the date of service, file a response. Justice Inyang Ekwo has adjourned till April 27 for hearing.
