The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, on Thursday, said he is yet to receive any formal extradition request from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) for the top Police Officer, Abba Kyari, following his indictment by a United States court.
Baba stated this while speaking to journalists at a parley on Thursday.
The IGP confirmed that the panel constituted to investigate the case had submitted its report to the Secretary-General of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha.
He said: “I have not received any extradition request formally. But I have read from other places that there was an extradition request. I’ve not seen it and that is one.
“Two, we took our own action by constituting a panel to look into the allegations that were made against the senior officer.
“The allegations were based on fraternising with Hushpuppi and receiving some series of instructions on extrajudicial torture and so on. We looked into all these allegations via the committee that was set up by the DIG and we submitted our report to the SGF.
“We just received legal advice from the office of the Attorney General on what to do next in terms of asking the officer to account for what we have gathered in the course of our investigation.”
Recall that Kyari has been accused of being a conspirator in a $1.1m fraud deal involving an Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi.
