Canadian Minister of Justice, Kelechi Madu, calls Nigerian Minister of Justice, Malami a disgrace – Ladun Liadi’s Blog
The Minister of Justice and Solicitor-General of the Government of Alberta, Canada, Kelechi Madu, has slammed the Nigerian Minister of Justice and Attorney-General, Abubakar Malami, over the re-arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
Madu, in a post on his LinkedIn page, said if reports that Kanu was abducted from Kenya were true, Malami was not only a disgrace to the rule of law but also not worthy to be a public officer.
The Canadian official, who is also the Deputy Government House Leader, said Nigeria and Kenya violated international law in the manner Kanu was extradited and called on world leaders to apply appropriate sanctions.
Madu, who demanded the release of Kanu, urged the Nigerian government to ensure his safety.
“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,” he wrote.
He also called on the international community and leaders of nations to use all their power to ensure “real consequences for these arbitrary violations of internationally accepted democratic norms and rules that govern civilized people.”
Madu added that “Nigeria is burning, and the people of Nigeria, except those who are holding the country down, want out.
“You cannot destroy the hope and aspirations of a people destined for greatness and expect them to bow down in servitude.
“You cannot destroy a generation of people and expect them not to fight for their freedom. The power of guns, state-sponsored terrorism will not achieve peace or the preservation of Nigeria.
