Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu has posited that embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari should accept responsibility for what he has been accused of doing.
Yesufu, tweeting via her verified handle on Wednesday disagreed with Mike Ozekhome, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), who said Kyari cannot be extradited from Nigeria to the US, even though there is an extradition treaty between both countries.
Speaking on Kyari’s matter on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme, on Tuesday, Ozekhome had said under section 36 of the constitution, Kyari’s fundamental human rights are protected, and that the officer cannot be treated like a common criminal by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
“The FBI cannot come into Nigeria and pick Abba Kyari like a common criminal and take him away to America, it is not going to happen, it has never happened before. I do not believe it will ever happen. Nigeria is a sovereign state and that must be respected within the boundaries of Nigeria,” he had said.
Reacting to Ozekhome’s stance, Yesufu opposed the legal luminary.
“Protect country’s image? Protecting the country’s image would have been not shooting protesters, the President not going for medical tourism. Governors not caught on cameras pocketing dollars. N/A not being rubber stamp. Abba Kyari is accused criminal that should face the music!” Yesufu wrote.
