Malami Said FG Will Allow Ohanaeze Monitor Nnamdi Kanu’s Trial

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami has stated that the federal government will allow Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo, to fully witness and monitor the alleged terrorism trial of Biafran leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Malami claimed that the federal government has nothing to hide in the trial and will let the law take its course in the upcoming trial.

The Federal Government, on the other hand, is putting up a sorry face, despite openly failing to comply with several court rulings to release Kanu when he was arrested in 2015, and keeping him in detention for two years.

Dr Jibrin Umar Gwandu, the AGF’s Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, issued a statement on Monday outlining the federal government’s position.

Malami statement reads in part, “The Attorney General of the Federation welcomed the formation of Legal team by Ohanaeze Ndigbo to monitor the proceedings at the trial of the self-acclaimed IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu which is in line with the doctrine of the right of fair hearing rooted in Section 36 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

“Inherent in the position of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo on the matter was the demonstration of their recognition of belonging to Nigeria and succumbing to the rule of law while maintaining their stance that they were not averse to the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.

“In a similar vein, the group showed a mature departure from the mindset of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra when Ohanaeze said they “do not support the use of any form of violence” while channelling concerns and presenting demands.

“By urging the youths to be law-abiding and sheath their sword as well as asking them to try to obtain voter’s card to enable them contribute to national development, the position of Ohanaeze becomes glaringly constitutional and commendable.

“Let it be made abundantly clear that President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government respects the rule of law and does not advocate for the breach of law. Hence, with or without the so-called monitoring group, justice will be adequately served to Nnamdi Kanu in compliance with the enshrined provisions of the law.

“It is hoped that the unnecessary legal monitoring group will come with open-mind and be guided by nothing but the rule of law in the process so as to convey the judgment of the Court as may eventually be delivered to their people in various languages and dialects of the members of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo communities and the entire Nigerians.”
