The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), on Wednesday, said it is premature to pardon Nnamdi Kanu. He stated that the IPOB leader is still standing trial for terrorism-related charges.

He explained this while speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today and said a political solution is not on the table at the moment. Malami also said the idea of a pardon for Kanu is premature because he is still standing trial before a court of law. He noted that he is not ruling out any possibility but that is not immediately on the table.

AGF MalamiHe said, “Pardon is a function of conviction in the Nigerian context and as far as I know, Nnamdi Kanu has not been convicted yet so the idea of pardoning him is premature against the backdrop that the trials associated with him have not been concluded but one thing I can tell you is that he is standing trial and the trial continues as at today.”
