A Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday granted permission to the detained Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari to file more evidence against a suit by the Federal Government seeking to extradite him to the United States of America for trial on criminal charges.

Justice Inyang Ekwo granted the request of Kyari made through his lead counsel, Nureni Jimoh, in a motion on notice.

Jimoh while arguing the motion on notice prayed the court to allow his Kyari to bring additional documentary exhibits to establish his innocence in the charges against him.

The Federal Government counsel, Pius Akuta, however vehemently opposed the granting of the request.

Akuta predicated his opposition on the ground that it was an attempt to cure deficiencies in the earlier documentary evidence adduced by the detained DCP Kyari.

Justice Ekwo, delivering a brief ruling, rejected the objection of the Federal Government and granted permission to Kyari to adduce further documentary exhibits to his own defense.

Meanwhile, Justice Ekwo has fixed June 3 for a definite hearing in the extradition suit instituted by the Attorney General of the Federation on behalf of the Federal Government against Kyari.
