EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has said that the legal advice by his office recommended further investigation of suspended DCP Abba Kyari.
The report of the office of the AGF in a legal advice no: DPPA/LA/814/21, written on behalf of the AGF by the Director of Public Prosecutions of the ministry, Mohammed Abubakar, stated that the evidence contained in the case diary had no link between DCP Abba Kyari and fraudster, Ramon Abass, also known as Hushpuppi, in the $1.1million Internet fraud.
Malami had, in a recent TV interview, admitted there were prima facie evidence against Kyari, adding that extradition moves are ongoing in the matter.
However, in a statement by his media aide, Umar Gwandu on Sunday, Malami said media reports about a contradiction in his stance on the matter show a misunderstanding and misconception of the issue.
“The office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice’s stance is that no conclusion has been reached in the direction of absence of evidence relating to the first report,” he said.
“The issues were raised for further investigation with a view to cover the field in investigation with a view to arrive at an informed decision.”
Based on an indictment by the FBI, the police set up a panel to probe Kyari.
The suspended DCP was also implicated in drug-related offences and alleged to be a key member of a transnational drug cartel.
