Fraud: Trial of Abba Kyari’s co-defendants to last six days in U.S - 4 weeks ago
The international fraud case allegedly involving embattled police officer, Abba Kyari will reportedly last 6 days in court.
Recall that six persons were indicted for various roles in a $1.1 million fraud case reportedly cordinated by Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi.
It was gathered that three of the defendants; Rukayat Fashola (aka Morayo), Bolatito Agbabiaka (aka Bolamide), and Yusuf Anifowoshe (aka AJ and Alvin Johnson) arrested in the United States and subsequently released on bail, have asked that their trial be postponed to May 2022.
The other defendants which prosecutors say are outside the U.S. and "at large" are Mr Kyari, Abdulrahman Juma, and Kelly Chibuzo Vincent.
Prosecutors along with the three available defendants filed an application for the postponement of the trial from October 2021 to 17 May, 2022 on Friday.
Premium Times reported that in the application filed at the U.S. District Court of Central California, it was stated that parties estimated that six days would be required to conclude the three defendants’ trial.
“The parties estimate that the trial in this matter will last approximately 6 days."
It is also speculated that the trial of the available defendants may be separated from those of Mr Kyari and others still at large.
Justice Otis Wright is expected to grant the request to fix 17 May, 2022 for commencement of trial as there was no objection to this.
