Kanu has not been acquitted – Malami
ATTORNEY-GENERAL of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), clarified last night that Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was not acquitted by the Court of Appeal.
He said the appellate court only decided a single issue that borders on rendition.
The AGF said Kanu has other pre-rendition cases to answer.
Malami made the clarifications in a statement through his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.
The statement said: “The Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has received the news of the decision of the Court of Appeal concerning the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.
“For the avoidance of doubt and by the verdict of the court, Kanu was only discharged and not acquitted.
“Consequently, the appropriate legal options before the authorities will be exploited and communicated accordingly to the public.
“The decision handed down by the Court of Appeal was on a single issue that borders on rendition. Nation
