The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has been accused of terrorism.

The accusation was made today by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lead Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.

Ejiofor, in a statement on Wednesday, said the AGF and his accomplices had flagrantly violated both Nigerian and international laws for the manner in which the extradition and rendition of his client, Nnamdi Kanu, was handled thus, committing an act of terrorism under the same law they had violated.

The statement read, “The Honourable Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), is aware of the existence of this Nigerian Extradition Act, Cap E25, Laws of the Federation 2004, particularly the compelling provision of Section 15 of this Extradition Act.

 

“Yet, he proceeded on a gross violation of this law, to participate in the criminal abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, from Kenya, and extraordinarily renditioned him to Nigeria, instead of subjecting him to this extradition proceedings as also mutually provided under Kenyan laws.”

 

Ejiofor further questioned why Kanu’s extradition process was different from that of the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, saying Kanu was not afforded the same treatment Kyari received, having been subjected to extradiction proceedings before a court of law.

“Pertinent to note that this same AGF also subjected the disgraced and suspended ACP Abba Kyari, to the same extradition proceedings before the Nigerian Court.

 

“So why was Nnamdi Kanu not afforded the same opportunity before he was forcefully renditioned to Nigeria?

 

“The law is now settled that the Attorney General of the Federation and his accomplices, committed an act of terrorism under their own very law, for the manner in which they violated international laws with impunity in the forceful abduction and rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to Nigeria.

 

“It is to be noted also that, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is by virtue of the provisions of another Nigerian Law under Section 2(3)(f) of the Terrorism Prevention (Amendment and Prohibition) Act, 2022, a victim of terrorism. Abubakar Malami SAN is equally aware of the provisions of this law.

 

“In a saner and civil society, the Attorney General of the Federation and his accomplices would be in the prison cooling off, for their flagrant violation of the Nigerian laws which constitute an act of terrorism. However, and most unfortunately, we are in a country of ‘anyhowness,’ where anything goes.

 

“Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s freedom is sacrosanct and the hour has come, no going back,” he added.
