The Lead Counsel for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has accused the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, of terrorism.
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.
