The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Sunday, accused the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami of trying to destroy the criminal justice system and judiciary in Nigeria.
IPOB remarked while stressing that “filing dead charges” against Kanu were an affront against the court judgment ordering Kanu’s release.
Recall that the Federal Government had filed an amended seven-count charge against Kanu.
Condemning the move, IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful, accused Malami of making a mockery of the judicial system.
Powerfully said filing amended charges after the judgment of an Appeal Court was an affront to the ruling of the court.
A statement by Powerful reads partly:” We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU, condemn the rumored new amended charge filed by Malami and his cohorts against our indefatigable Kanu, even after the Court of Appeal has discharged and acquitted him of all criminal allegations.
This is a clear indication that Malami is a quota system SAN who has no business or knowledge of the legal profession.
Our Simple understanding and knowledge are that the judgment of the court is a problem to Malami and the APC Government, no wonder, under Malami’s reign as the Chief law officer of the Federation, he has been rated among the most corrupt legal officer and his Ministry is presently entangled in a plethora of corruption allegations that bothers on embezzlement of public fund.
If Malami the Attorney General likes to let him go to his native Kebbi state and file fresh charges in a sharia court against our indefatigable leader KANU, he is not only wasting his time, he is making a mockery of purported legal training and the Judiciary of Nigeria.
The era of filing frivolous charges against KANU is gone and gone forever.”
The Appeal Court in Abuja had discharged and acquitted Kanu of all terrorism charges against him.
Despite the court order, the Nigerian Government refused to release the IPOB leader.
Kanu has been locked up since last year when he was arrested in Kenya and repatriated to Nigeria.
Following his arrest, the Nigerian Government arraigned him before an Abuja Federal High Court.
