A Federal High Court in Abuja has rejected an ex-parte application for an order restraining the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) from arresting and possibly extraditing the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari.

In a ruling on Thursday, Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the federal high court Abuja explained that he was not inclined to granting the relief sought in the ex-parte motion.

Justice Mohammed ordered that the ex-parte motion should be converted to a motion on notice and served same, along with the originating processes, on the respondents – the NPF and AGF.

The motion ex-parte was filed by a group, the Incorporated Trustees of the Northern Peace Foundation through their lawyer, Kayode Ajulo.

Ajulo, while moving the motion on Thursday, stated that his client has also filed originating processes in relation to substantive suit.

The plaintiff is, in the substantive suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/854/2021, querying the propriety of the alleged threat to arrest and extradite Kyari in relation to his indictment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the United States.

The Police Service Commission (PSC) has since suspended Abba Kyari from office and as head of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT).

His suspension followed the recommendation of Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, as a temporary measure while the police investigate Kyari’s relationship with a suspected fraudster, Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi.

Arica Daily News, New York recalls that Kyari was indicted by a U.S. court as a conspirator in a $1.1 million fraudulent deal against a Qatari businessman.

According to a statement by the PSC, the suspension took effect on Saturday, July 31, the day the IGP wrote to the commission, and will continue until the conclusion of the investigation.
