Hushpuppi: Kyari can turn himself in if he’s sure of his innocence -SAN
Senior Advocate of Nigeria and former legal adviser of the All Progressives Congress, Muiz Banire has said Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, could turn himself in to Interpol if he is certain that he is innocent of the allegations preferred against him by the United States Attorney’s Office, Central District of California in the case involving Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi.
“In my point of view, morally speaking, in allegation of this nature, there is nothing wrong, particularly if the officer is sure of himself, to even turn himself in; because, so far, there is no complications in the matter, and there is nothing wrong in running there to say, ‘Look, I want to clear my reputation.’
“So, beyond the investigation being done by the government, he can also avail of himself of the opportunity that is already afforded.
“So, as far as law is concerned, what is being done is due process,” the senior lawyer said.
Banire described Kyari’s indictment in the alleged international fraud involving five other persons and running into over $1m, as a dent on Nigeria’s image.
Commenting on Kyari’s suspension by the Police Service Commission in an interview on Channels Television, the former Lagos State ex-Environment commissioner said;
“Certainly, it is a dent on the image of the country, but we are handling the issue very well so far.
“What is going on is an internal investigation of the matter and, until a prima facie case is established against the officer, he is still presumed innocent.”
