According to reports, the international fraud case which involves embattled police officer, Abba Kyari will last 6 days in a United States court.
It should be recalled that no fewer than six persons were indicted for different roles in the $1.1 million fraud case allegedly coordinated by Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi.
It was reliably gathered that 3 of the defendants; Bolatito Agbabiaka (also known as Bolamide), Rukayat Fashola (also known as Morayo), and Yusuf Anifowoshe (also known as AJ) were arrested in the United States and were later released on bail. They have however requested that their trial be postponed to May 2022.
The other defendants which according to the prosecutors are outside the United States are Abba Kyari, Kelly Chibuzo Vincent and Abdulrahman Juma.
Prosecutors and the three available defendants applied to postpone the trial from October 2021 to May 17, 2022 recently.
According to Premium Times’ report, it was stated in the application filed that parties estimated that six days would be needed to conclude the trial of the three defendants.
It read: “The parties estimate that the trial in this matter will last approximately 6 days.”
Also, there is speculation that the trial of the available defendants may be different from that of Kyari and others still at large.
It is expected that Justice Otis Wright will grant the request to schedule May 17, 2022 for commencement of trial as nobody objected to this.
