Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG), a non-governmental organisation, has consulted three US-based law firms to defend Abba Kyari, the former Head of Police Intelligence Response Team.

Olusegun Bamgbose, the National Coordinator of the organisation, said this in Owerri on Wednesday.

Bamgbose said Kyari remains innocent of the allegations leveled against him until he is proven guilty in the court of law.

He also said consulting the law firms would ensure justice for the embattled ‘supercop’.

“We have diligently consulted with about three notable law firms in the United States to give us their legal opinions on what can be done to formidably defend Abba Kyari,” he said.

“One of the leading firms has replied to us and gone ahead to send us the indictment against Abba Kyari and other details, which is about 26 pages.

“The reputable law firm, well-grounded on extradition issues, has assured us of their readiness to represent Kyari’s interest before and after his possible extradition to the U.S.”

The United States District Court for the Central District of California had ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to track Kyari down for participating in a multi-million dollar fraud.

The Attorney’s Office had alleged that Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi, paid Kyari up to N8 million to arrest and jail a certain Chibuzo Vincent.

Although he denied a hand in the fraud, the supercop has been under fire since the allegations were made against him, and has already lost his position as head of the IRT.
