Why Nigeria should not handover Abba Kyari to FBI, Gen. Gololo

 

 

Nigerian based security adept, Major General Garus Gololo, has opined that the Federal Government of Nigeria must not  handover the embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari to the American security agency for trial.

 

DCP Kyari is currently standing trial in an American court, over an allegation of bribery, as revealed in the report of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) who is currently prosecuting a Nigerian suspect, Ramoni Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi for advance fraud.

 

FBI agents reportedly arrived Nigeria and meeting heads of security agencies, ahead of the arrest and extradition of DCP Kyari to America, for continuation of trial.

 

But Gen. Gololo, while interacting with newsmen in Abuja on Friday, said it would be totally wrong for the Nigerian government to release such a global class super Cop, who is an envy of the whole world.

 

He said, “The International Criminal Law allows any country to carry out an in-house investigation or trial of any suspected citizen of the nation, such as the allegation against Kyari, since it is not an act of terrorism against a foreign country”.

 

Gololo wondered why the American court would order the extradition of DCP Kyari, who is the smartest and most proactive Cop Nigeria would never want to lose.

 

“Let Kyari be tried in Nigeria according to our own law. What they are accusing him of is not an act of terrorism or money laundering. They said he allegedly received bribe and I think that is the duty of ICPC to investigate and if it is found to be true, Kyari should be prosecuted and jailed according to our law.

 

“Nigeria is a sovereign state and we are not under any country’s law, we have our own law, we have our own court and the international criminal court also allows him to be tried in Nigeria, even if the offence was committed  in America, since it is not terrorism or money laundering. We are independent nation.

 

“That is why you see that the Beninese government refused to extradite Sunday Igboho to Nigeria to be tried, even though he was declared wanted by Nigeria’s government”, he added.

 

Gen. Gololo advised Nigeria’s government, to, however, do proper investigation of the allegation and also make the process public to avoid sweeping facts under the carpets or crucifying Kyari unjustly.
