The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami of destroying criminal justice system over his disobedience to court order that discharged its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The group, in statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, also accused Malami of making mockery of his legal training and Judiciary.
It argued that the era of filing frivolous charges against Kanu was over.
The separatist group insisted that the only available option to Malami and Federal Government remained obedience to court order by releasing its leader.
The statement partly reads: “We condemn the rumored new amended charge filed by Malami and his cohorts against our indefatigable Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, even after the Court of Appeal has discharged and acquitted him of all criminal allegations.
“This is a clear indication that Malami is really quota system SAN who have no business or knowledge to near the legal profession.
“Our simple understanding and knowledge is that the judgement of the court is a problem to Malami and APC Government including their cohorts, no wonder, under Malami reign as the Chief law officer of the Federation, he has been rated among the most corrupt legal officer and his Ministry is presently entangled in plethora of corruption allegations that bothers on embezzlement of public fund.
“If Malami the Attorney General likes let him go to his native Kebbi State and file fresh charges in a Sharia Court against our indefatigable leader Mazi NnamdiKANU, he is not only wasting his time, he is making a mockery of purported legal training and the Judiciary of Nigeria.
“Does Malami think that the civilised world will be deceived or compelled to ignore his flagrant disobedience of a subsisting court order made by a competent court of Appeal? The world is monitoring his flagrant violation of laws and orders of courts.
“Every primary school pupil at least from elementary five in Nigeria knows that the Court of Appeal judgement is binding on High Court. Let Malami know that the way the judiciary works in any civilised society that practices Common Law as Nigeria claims it does, the decision of an appellate court is binding on the High Court.”
