The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari has been charged by human rights lawyer, Femi Falana to submit himself to the District Court in the United States if he is not guilty of allegations against him.
Recall that the super cop on Thursday denied the allegation levelled against him after a report of his relationship with Internet fraudster, Ramon Abass popularly known as Hushpuppi emerged.
The court had issued an arrest warrant for the Deputy Commission of Police after Hushpuppi pleaded guilty to cyber fraud in the U.S.
The documents released by the court also revealed how Hushpuppi bribed Kyari to arrest one of his gang members following a dispute presumably over the proceeds of crime.
Kyari while reacting to the allegation in a post on his Facebook account, narrated how Hushpuppi called him two years ago to complain about a person threatening to kill his family.
He said the suspect was released after discovering there was no threat to anyone’s life, “and they are longtime friends who have money issues between them.
“Nobody demanded a kobo from Abbas Hushpuppi,” claiming that he only introduced Mr Abbas, who paid N300,000 to his cloth vendor.
“Later, he saw some of my native clothes and caps on my social media page, and he said he likes them, and he was connected to the person selling the clothes, and he sent about N300k directly to the person’s account,”
Kyari added, “The native clothes and caps (five sets) were brought to our office, and He sent somebody to collect them in our office.”
Falana while reacting to Kyari’s claims said, “The United States and Nigeria have an extradition treaty which covers the offences allegedly committed by CP Abba Kyari.”
“If the police officer insists on his innocence, he may want to submit himself to the jurisdiction of the district court in the United States. Once the request is received by the federal government, the attorney general will commence extradition proceedings in the federal high court.”
