On March 3rd, the Nigerian Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, filed an application to the Federal High Court for the extradition of former Nigerian “supercop” Abba Kyari to the United States for his alleged link to suspected money launderer Ramon Abbas.  Three weeks prior, Kyari and four other police officers were arrested for their alleged involvement in a cocaine smuggling cartel.  Now, he faces likely extradition to the United States for previous charges wherein he is suspected of taking bribes from alleged Instagram fraudster, Ramon Abbas.
