The Minister of Justice and Solicitor-General of the Government of Alberta, Canada, Kelechi Madu, has blasted the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation in Nigeria, Abubakar Malami, over the arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
Madu in a post on his LinkedIn page, said if the IPOB leader was truly abducted in Kenya, then the Nigerian minister is a disgrace to the rule of law.
Recall that Malami had last Tuesday announced that Kanu was rearrested through the collaborative efforts of Nigerian intelligence and security services.
The legal team of Kanu after visiting him at DSS detention disclosed that the IPOB leader was detained and tortured until last Sunday when he was flown back to the country.
However, Madu believes that Nigeria and Kenya violated international law in the manner the IPOB leader was extradited.
He wrote, “The Nigerian government led by Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the safety of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra. I urge his immediate release.
“Reports suggest that Mazi Kanu was abducted in Kenya with the active collaboration of the Kenyan government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta. If true, Nigeria and Kenya violated international law and the rule of law that is supreme in their respective countries.
“I call upon the international community, and in particular, @USin Nigeria, @UKinNigeria, @CanHCNigeria, @GERinNigeria, @lsraelin Nigeria and @EUinNigeria to use all their power, including diplomacy, to ensure the safety and release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“The Attorney General of Nigeria, Abubakar Malami is a disgrace to the rule of law, and not worthy to be an officer of the court. He has shown himself to be a bigot who does not understand what it means to live in a pluralistic society governed by the dictates of the rule of law.”
