The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Thursday adjourned the hearing in the extradition suit against suspended Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Abba Kyari to Friday, June 3.
Newsbreak reports that at the Thursday’s court session, the judge, Inyang Ekwo, granted the request of Abba Kyari made through his lead counsel, Nureni Jimoh, in a motion on notice.
Jimoh, while arguing the application, asked the court to allow Abba Kyari to bring additional documentary exhibits to establish his innocence in the charges against him.
But, the federal government’s lawyer, Pius Akuta, opposed the request.
Akuta based his opposition on the grounds that it was an attempt to cure deficiencies in the earlier documentary evidence presented by Abba Kyari.
However, in a short ruling, Ekwo rejected the objection and granted Abba Kyari permission to furnish the court with further documentary exhibits to strengthen his defence.
The judge said that the court would have ample opportunity to determine the probate value to be attached to the additional evidence.
Subsequently, the suit was adjourned until June 3 for a definite hearing in the extradition suit.
