The office of the Attorney-General of the Federation is also looking into the request of extraditing the famed super cop to the United States of America.

According to the Daily Trust, the inquiry was issued based on the findings of the Special Investigation Panel (SIP), which investigated Kyari's alleged indictment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

A US court indicted Kyari as a conspirator in Hushpuppi's $1.1 million fraudulent deal against a Qatari businessman.

The Police Service Commission (PSC) suspended him from office as a deputy commissioner of police and head of the IRT based on the recommendation of the IGP.

It was learnt that the DIG Joseph Egbunike-led panel, which submitted its report in August, established that there was communication between Kyari and Hushpuppi.
