The last may not have been heard of the trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, as Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, disclosed that Kanu was only discharged but not acquitted.  

Malami stated this in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.

The AGF’s reaction followed a Court of Appeal judgment that set aside the terrorism charges brought against Kanu, stating that his rendition from Kenya was unlawful.  

The statement read, “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.

“Let it be made clear to the general public that other issues that predate rendition on the basis of which Kanu jumped bail remain valid issues for judicial determination.

“The Federal Government will consider all available options open to us on the judgment on rendition while pursuing determination of pre-rendition issues.
