He (Falana) spoke during a Twitter Spaces conversation hosted by one of the EndSARS activists, Rinu Oduala.

According to Falana: “Whether Abba Kyari likes it or not, the Americans are going to get him to stand trial.

“We want to make the government responsible and accountable, anybody who has been kidnapped, the family members who have paid ransom to have them freed.”

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria wondered that the Nigerian government which engaged in “gangsterism while dealing with secessionists, wants to follow due process in Kyari’s case.”

The FBI wants Kyari over his links with an international cyber fraudster, Ramon Abass, popularly known as Hushpuppi.

Reports said the FBI claimed that Hushuppi bribed Kyari to jail an errant gang member, Vicent Chibuzor, over a deal worth over $1.1 million.
