Nnamdi Kanu will continue trial, Idea of granting him pardon is premature – Malami

Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, says the issue of pardoning the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, is premature as he spoke on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday December 1.

He 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.”

When asked if granting the IPOB leader pardon is an option for peace in the South East, Malami said he is yet to assess the security implications of such a decision.
