The human rights lawyer said that rather than wasting time and resources On Kanu’s trial, it should sit down and negotiate with the IPOB leader.

Femi Falana (SAN) has said that the Nigerian government is not competent to continue with the trial of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, on treasonable charges.

The human rights lawyer said that rather than wasting time and resources On Kanu’s trial, it should sit down and negotiate with the IPOB leader.

This is as the Attorney-General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, after the Appeal Court ruling that discharged and acquitted Kanu, contended that the IPOB was merely discharged but not acquitted.

Malami had in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations Officer, Dr Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, insisted that “for the avoidance of doubt and by the verdict of the Court, Kanu was only discharged and not acquitted.”

The AGF has added that “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 border on rendition. Let it be made clear to the general public that other issues that predate rendition based on 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 the determination of pre-rendition issues.”
