Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a judgment, described the extradition request as “an abuse of court process” on the grounds that Mr Kyari was already standing a criminal trial before another court.

The attorney-general of the federation, Abubakar Malami, had filed the extradition suit, praying the court to grant the plea for Mr Kyari to face a criminal charge levelled against him by the U.S. government.
