Attorney-general denies knowing Nnamdi Kanu, stresses legal process



Nnamdi Kanu Detention: AGF Fagbemi clarifies stance

In a notable statement during the Ministerial Sectoral Updates event commemorating President Bola Tinubu’s first year in office, the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Lateef Olasunkanmi Fagbemi, SAN, addressed pressing questions regarding the detention of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Fagbemi made it clear that he has no personal acquaintance with Nnamdi Kanu, indicating a level of detachment from the case.

Moreover, he underscored the disparity between Kanu’s situation and that of other detained figures like Omoyele Sowore, founder of the #RevolutionNow movement.

Refraining from commenting on the recent release of Sunday Igboho, a prominent Yoruba Nation activist, Fagbemi emphasized that Kanu’s detention is being conducted within the boundaries of the law.

Responding to queries about why individuals such as Sowore and Igboho were granted release while Kanu remains in custody, Fagbemi reiterated that each case is unique.

He stressed that Nnamdi Kanu detention adheres to legal processes and judicial oversight, implying that any decisions regarding his status would be made within the confines of the law and through proper judicial channels.

The Attorney-General’s remarks have ignited speculation and debate, particularly regarding the legal framework surrounding Kanu’s detention and the broader implications for civil liberties and the rule of law in Nigeria. As the situation unfolds, stakeholders and observers await further developments and the eventual outcome of Kanu’s legal proceedings.
