Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abu, bakar Malami, (SAN) has described as false the media reports that his office had conclusively exonerated Abba Kyari.
The clarification was made in a statement issued on Sunday by Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, the Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.
According to Gwandu, there appears to be a misunderstanding regarding the issue.
The embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, Kyari, who is wanted in the United States for his alleged involvement in a 1.1 million dollars scam carried out by a notorious Internet fraudster, Ramon Abass, a.k.a Hushpuppi, was suspended by the police in July 2021.
Meanwhile, Kyari who is now facing fresh drug trafficking charges brought against him by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), pleaded not guilty before Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court, Abuja on Monday.
