Malami to IPOB: Agitation for Kanu’s Release, Not an Option

Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, asserted that the agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is no solution for the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

He, however, pointed out that the Federal Government cannot pardon Kanu at the moment since no competent court of law has commenced with his conviction process.

The Attorney-General also hinted that, so far, there is no politicalsolution, for the time being, one that would guarantee the release of the proscribed leader of the separatist group.
