A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN) and ex-presidential candidate, Kingsley Moghalu, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to follow due process with respect to the ongoing controversy over Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari.
Moghalu reacted in a post on his Facebook page on Friday titled “This is not a movie: DCP Kyari and the long arm of justice”,
Kyari had on Thursday denied demanding or receiving a bribe from alleged internet fraudster Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, alias Hushpuppi, from a $1.1million loot.
In a post on his Facebook page, Kyari said those celebrating the allegations against him would be disappointed.
Reacting, Moghalu said: “President Muhammadu Buhari has frequently opted for subjective loyalties over real political will on national security and fighting corruption.
“The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) request for the extradition of accused Nigerian police chief Abba Kyari in the Hushpuppi case will put him and Nigeria in the global spotlight.
“It’s one thing to go to great lengths in seeking to extradite Sunday Igboho from Benin Republic and the apparent extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from God-knows-where.
“It’s another to respect international law in black and white when it comes to certain Nigerians.
“Nigeria and the United States have an extradition treaty and it has been used in a number of cases.
“Is this a bone in the throat? What leadership calls for is obvious, President Buhari should respect laws and follow due process. We are watching.”
