Whether Kyari Likes It Or Not, US Will Get Him To Face Trial — Falana SAN

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana says the US government will get Abba Kyari, the deputy commissioner of police, to face trial whether he likes it or not.

Falana spoke on Sunday during a Twitter Spaces conversation hosted by Rinu Oduala, the rights advocate and community organizer.

Few days ago, a US court had issued a warrant of arrest for Kyari over his alleged involvement in the $1.1 million fraud committed by Hushpuppi, self-confessed international fraudster.

According to a US court document, Kyari was allegedly bribed by Hushpuppi to arrest one Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, a co-fraudster, to stop him from hindering a scam deal.

The development has stirred public criticism, which has led to the suspension of Kyari while a panel has been set up to investigate the allegations.

However, the suspended senior police officer has since denied the allegations.

Speaking on the development, Falana said Kyari will be made to stand trial no matter how long it takes.

He said Kyari has been above the law in Nigeria for a very long time, adding that a government that engaged in “gangsterism” while dealing with secessionists wants to follow due process in Kyari’s case.

“Whether Abba Kyari likes it or not, the Americans are going to get him to stand trial,” he said.
