A Federal High Court in Abuja will on August 29 deliver judgment in the extradition suit filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) against the suspended DCP Abba Kyari, over his alleged link with Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, an alleged internet fraudster held in the United States.
Justice Inyang Ekwo fixed the date after counsel for the parties in the suit adopted their processes and presented their arguments in the matter.

The Federal Government had sought Kyari’s extradition to the U.S. to answer a case over his alleged link with Hushpuppi.
The Federal Government, through the Office of the AGF, 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 March 1 and filed on March 2.
While the AGF is the applicant, Kyari is the respondent in the application.
Kyari formerly headed the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT).
The application was filed under the Extradition Act as part of the Nigerian government’s approval of the request by the U. S. for Kyari’s extradition.
Kyari and six others are currently facing a separate trial on allegations bordering on drug trafficking before a sister court presided over by Justice Emeka Nwite. (NAN)
