Nnamdi Kanu: Malami’s Assignment Is Not Regime’s Protection – Ejimakor Attacks AGF
One of the counsels of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, Aloy Ejimakor, has charged the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami to upload the law and see that justice is done to every Nigerian citizen and even foreigners in the country.
Ejimakor in his statement noted that Malami’s work is not to protect the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The lawyer to the IPOB leader charged the AGF to bring any evidence he has against Kanu to the court, rather than hold press conferences against the IPOB leader.
Ejimakor said there was no Panel of Enquiry inaugurated after the #EndSARS protests that indicted Kanu or IPOB for causing violence during the protest.
Ejimakor stated this during an interview with BBC Pidgin at the weekend.
According to the lawyer, the legal team of the IPOB leader is studying the contents of the press conference to decide if to take legal actions against Malami.
He said, “You have asked me about the press conference done by the Attorney-General on Friday. It’s quite surprising that a day after this hearing, the Attorney-General saw the occasion to address the conference. The Attorney-General should be reminded that despite his duality of role under the Nigerian constitution, he is the attorney-general of everybody.
“His job is not regime protection, his job is to uphold the law and see that justice is done to every Nigerian citizen and even foreigners who happen to find themselves in Nigeria. What he appears to be saying on Friday is akin to saying a witch cries at night and the baby dies in the morning, therefore the witch kills the baby.
“The real arguments of these allegations are without substance and he never presented any evidence. And we have this particular one concerning the EndSARS protest. We had commissions of enquiry across the country, particularly in Lagos, and they had one in Imo State as well that I peow about. And there was nothing from any of these commissions of enquiry that returned an indictment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or IPOB in the aftermath of the EndSARS protest.
“So, that accusation was made in bad faith and is intended to poison the mind of the public and also to prejudice the minds of the quarters. It is a highly prejudicial interview and we are studying the content to see if there is going to be legal reactions that will come from our side.
“If he has any evidence that our client was caught in any wrongdoing or criminality, he should know better than anybody else that the platform to present such evidence is the court of law. Not calling press conferences.”
