Kanu only discharged, not acquitted – Malami 




Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami said few hours after yesterday’s Appeal Court judgement  that Nnamdi Kanu  was only discharged by the court but not acquitted.

Malami, who conveyed the FG’s position in a statement by his spokesman, Umar Jibril Gwandu, said the Appeal Court only discharged Kanu and did not acquit him.

 “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.”
