HURIWA accuses Northern coalition of blocking Kyari’s extradition

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has claimed that the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami; and some other political forces in the north are blocking the extradition of Abba Kyari to the United States.

HURIWA made this claim on Saturday, March 5, in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko.

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation had requested that Kyari; a Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, be tried in the United States for his involvement with internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas aka Ray Hushpuppi.

“The AGF and some northern political forces must be on a conspiratorial mission; because as long as Kyari is facing charges in Nigeria, he cannot be extradited to the US based on the Extradition Treaty between Nigeria and the United States,” HURIWA said.

HURIWA said that it is either that the AGF is not even aware that NDLEA had filed charges or he knew; but still authorised the filing of an extradition application even when aspects of the Extradition Treaty between Nigeria and the USA says no extradition will happen; if the accused person is facing same or another charge or charges at the time of filing the extradition application.

Meanwhile, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Friday in Akure said that his presidential ambition, come 2023, is neither a threat nor to brag but a reality.

Tinubu stated this at the palace of Deji of Akure.

The APC stalwart was in Akure to seek the support of traditional rulers in Ondo State for his ambition. Tinubu had earlier met with traditional rulers from the southern part of the state in Okitipupa. In addition, he also had a meeting with traditional rulers from the northern part of the state in Owo; before the Akure meeting with traditional rulers in the Ondo Central Senatorial District.

He explained that a presidential candidate should have wisdom on how to govern a large crowd; saying he has what it requires to rule Nigeria.

Further, Tinubu said he had passion for the country; citing many struggles he had fought during the nascent democracy and those that benefitted from his political stance. According to him, he is fit and bold to win the political contest.
