New Hope As Attorney-General Of Nigeria Makes Fresh Declaration About Nnamdi Kanu’s Case

Published by admin on

Will the people ever see Nnamdi Kanu released from prison? No one can answer that for now as everything about his case in court keeps getting complicated.

According to a report posted by Daily Nigerian, The Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, Lateef Fagbemi, SAN says the offence of the detained leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu is a very difficult one and that only the court is competent to determine the charge.

While responding to questions at the Sectoral Ministerial Briefing on the first anniversary of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration on Friday, Fagbemi made some declarations concerning Kanu’s case.

He stated that since the mater was already in court, it should be allowed to remain in court where the law can have its way.

He further revealed that there was a remarkable difference between Kanu’s case and that of the convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, and stated the difference shortly after.

This is what he said, “Sowore and Kanu are not the same, when it comes to the first one I didn’t have difficulty to say go, but I have difficulty with the second one”. – According to Daily Nigerian.

Furthermore, The AGF pointed out that Kanu is being held in accordance with the Constitution, and since it’s still in court, it should be left there.

Recall that Sowore was arrested in 2019 and prosecuted for allegedly calling for the forceful take over of the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari. With Buhari no longer in power, the federal government through the office of the AGF in February this year filed a notice of discontinuation of the case.

Sowore is currently a free man.
