President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and the Nigeria police have been asked to extradite suspended police officer, Abba Kyari to the US.
Abba Kyari was suspended by the police commission to allow a thorough investigation in the case involving him with Hushpuppi.
The United States Department of Justice had said an ongoing investigations showed that Hushpuppi allegedly bribed Kyari to arrest one Kelly Chibuzo Vincent, one of his accomplices in Nigeria.
Kyari had since denied the allegations, but admitted helping the fraudster purchase some native clothes in which Hushpuppi allegedly made payments.
Nigerians have taken to their social media page demanding that Abba Kyari be extradited to the US as his case will be abandoned and not probed in Nigeria.
Some described his suspension as lenient, calling on the police to dismiss Abba Kyari from the force.
Below are reactions from Nigerians;
