I didn’t clear Abba Kyari of money laundering – Malami

Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, has debunked media reports saying he had recanted his approval of the extradition request for detained police officer Abba Kyari.
Kyari is wanted in the United States for  money laundering offence.
The latest legal advice issued from Malami’s office and signed on his behalf by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mohammed Abubakar, stated that the evidence contained in the case diary had no link between DCP Abba Kyari and fraudster, Ramon Abass, also known as Hushpuppi, in the $1.1million internet.
Malami’s volte-face came after saying recently that there was a prima facie linking Kyari to the crime.
In a fresh statement issued on Sunday, Malami’s media aide, Dr Umar Gwandu, said the legal advice was misunderstood.“The office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice’s stance is that no conclusion has been reached in the direction of absence of evidence relating to the first report,” he said.“The issues were raised for further investigation with a view to cover the field in investigation with a view to arrived at informed decision.”
