Nigerians will determine Nnamdi Kanu’s release – Malami

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), on Tuesday, said Nigerians will determine President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision on the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

Malami who spoke on NTA’s Good Morning Nigeria Show, said, “By way of general statements to the two issues presented: the issue relating to Kanu and by extension, IPOB, what I can tell you for certain is that the decision of the President is based fundamentally and at all times on public interest consideration.

“In the art of governance and what I have come to learn about the mind and heart of the President, Muhammadu Buhari, is to consider the 200 million as against the limited people.

“By extension, the issue of Kanu, what would as well govern the decision of the President in terms of whatever request is presented is the public interest as against the limited sectional interest of it.”

some Igbo leaders had urged Buhari to release Nnamdi Kanu from detention.

The elders, led by former Minister of Aviation in the First Republic, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, had made the call during a meeting with Buhari at the State House, Abuja.

The IPOB leader is facing trial before Justice Binta Nyako-led court for charges based on terrorism.
