The Attorney General and Minister of Justice of the Federation(AGF) Malami Abubakar says the Federal Government is considering a variety of solutions to resolve the pending cases of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Ighoho.
Malami made this proclamation at a press briefing on Wednesday in Abuja. While emphasizing that criminal activities must be punished, he noted that the FG has been implementing the option of amnesty towards battling some security challenges in the country.
‘’The FG does not mind considering political solutions to in the cases of Kanu and Igboho as canvassed by some stakeholders in the country but such considerations is not yet on the table.’’
‘’As far as the security situation is concerned and as far as governance and this administration is concerned, you cannot rule out all possibilities’’ Malami said, adding that ‘’But then, there has to be an approach for government to consider”.
Malami, however, explained that he cannot be preemptive at this stage by stating clearly and outrightly that reconciliation is being considered without an approach being made.
The GF noted that the FG ‘’will look into the purpose of looking at its weight, the authenticity of it, the good faith associated with it and then bring about the considerable factors relating to the negotiations or otherwise.
‘’So, it is not a conclusion that one can outrightly make without juxtaposing associated facts relating to reconciliation. There has to be an approach and then a counter consideration. So, no approach in that respect is on the table for consideration yet. So, we’ll cross the bridge when we eventually get to that; when perhaps a type of request is made, we’ll consider’’, he said
