A Nigeria-America treaty entered in 1935 under the British colonial regime is enough reason to extradite a Nigerian suspect to America. This is the argument of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Femi Falana, concerning the case of Abba Kyari, the indicted police officer Falana, a well respected human rights lawyer in Nigeria, advised the federal government to handover Kyari to the US authorities.
FCT, Abuja – Popular human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN has called on the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, to follow and process an extradition request from the United States concerning Abba Kyari.
Kyari, a Borno-born Deputy Commissioner of Police, was recently indicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a law enforcement agency in the United States of America.
Abba Kyari might be handed over to US authorities if Falana’s advice is taken by the federal government.
