Stop blackmailing me, go to court – AGF, Malami tells judges

It was gathered that the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, has challenged two judges of the Federal High Court to go to court and prove any case they have against him, instead of resorting to blackmail and falsehood in the media.

Justices Ademola Adeniyi and Namdi Dimgba are accusing Malami of being the brain behind the recent raid of homes and arrest of judges.

The judges are seeking leave of the Chief Justice of Nigeria to raise legal issues against the DSS and the AGF over the raids on their home and infringement on their fundamental rights.

But Malami, who spoke to Newsmen through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Comrade Salihu Isah, said that the claims by the embattled justices were untrue.

Malami wondered why the affected judges did not bring up the cases against him when he appeared before the Senate for confirmation but threw them up only after being confronted with corruption allegations by the DSS.

“The Minister of Justice does not do a personal job to warrant taking vengeance on anyone. The issue is clear and unambiguous. If you have any case against him, proceed to court to prove it or stop whipping up sentiments to score cheap points.

“From all indications, what they are trying desperately to do after the DSS raids is an afterthought, which cannot avail them of any advantage in law, as the AGF has nothing personal against any of them or any other Nigerian in the discharge of his duties,” Salihu said.

The two judges claimed in separate letters sent to the CJN that their travails in the hands of Malami stemmed from recent verdicts they entered against the Federal Government, which the minister was uncomfortable with.

While Justice Ademola ordered release of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, and also granted bail to the detained former National Security Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Col. Sambo Dasuki, retd, on self recognition, Justice Dimgba on the other hand, granted bail to a former member of the arms probe panel set up by the Federal Government, Air Commodore Umar Mohammed (retd).
