Nnamdi Kanu was legally rearrested – Malami insists

Published

on

Nigeria’s attorney-general and minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, has insisted that a bench warrant for rearrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, was lawfully was issued by a competent court of law.

Malami, who spoke through his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, maintained that there was no illegality in the process that led to the rearrest and extradition of the IPOB leader from an unnamed country.

Malami, who said he was reacting to the ideas attributed to the minister of justice and solicitor-general of the government of Alberta, Canada, Kelechi Madu, described the ideal as outrageously ignoramus opinions that are eccentric and weird to the legal profession.

“It is unfortunate for someone who claims to be a lawyer of a status of a Solicitor General of a provincial State of Alberta in Canada to fault the internationally recognized manner through which Nnamdi Kanu who jumped bail was re-arrested and brought back to face trial,” Gwandu said in a statement on behalf of his boss.

“It is a common principle of the law that he who comes to equity must come with clean hands.

“The self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed group of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has enjoyed representation by counsel of his choice all through the judicial process and was never denied a right of choice of counsel or recourse to one, even when he symbolizes a proscribed association (IPOB) in law, and in fact his association has been legally proscribed.

“Where was the so-called Madu when Nnamdi Kanu was inciting violence against the country? Why, as a lawyer, would Madu support a fugitive who jumped bail and accused of terrorism and a treasonable felony? What stopped Madu from voicing out dissent on the atrocities of Kanu and their group?

“It is important to educate the likes of Keleche Madu that both Nigeria (his country of birth) and Canada (where he claims to be practising law) are signatories to the Multinational Treaty Agreement where, among others, fugitive fleeing justice in nations with similar agreement could be brought back to face justice.

“It is a pity that as a Solicitor General of a province, Madu failed to keep himself acquainted with the provisions of general laws of the country where he stays as well as international laws.”
