When the news about the release of former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, and the owner of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore broke out on Tuesday – many wondered why Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky was left out.
The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has explained why the Buhari government didn’t order the release of Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky.
The AGF spoke in an interview with the Hausa Service of the BBC on Thursday.
According to Malami, the case was being prosecuted by the Kaduna State government and as such, the federal government would not interfere.
”The Federal Government won’t interfere in a judicial process that is solely responsible for the state government to take charge of”, the AGF stated.
