FCT, Abuja - A former presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), Kingsley Moghalu, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to respect the extradition treaty between Nigeria and the United States on the issue involving the deputy commissioner of police, Abba Kyari.
The FBI has been asked by a US court to produce Kyari over his alleged role in a multi-million dollar fraud orchestrated by Hushpuppi and other members of his ring.
Reacting to the issue, Moghalu in a statement on Friday, July 30, said the international law must be made to take its due course, Channels TV reported.
The ex-deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) stated that the federal government should follow due process in the case against Kyari the same way it arrested Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and is also seeking to extradite Yoruba Nation Agitator, Sunday Igboho, from the Benin Republic.
Moghalu insisted the way Buhari handles the FBI’s request for the extradition of Kyari in the Hushpuppi case will put Nigeria in the global spotlight.
According to him, Nigeria and the United States have an extradition treaty which has been used in a number of cases.
