New troubles might be in the offing for the Biafra nation agitator, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, explained that Kanu was just discharged and not acquitted.

Malami dropped a clue on Thursday in his first response to the Court of Appeal verdict, which around the same time quashed the terrorism charges against Kanu on grounds of his unlawful abduction from Kenya to Nigeria.

A statement from Malami’s office read, “The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has received the news of the decision of the Court of Appeal concerning the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.

“For the avoidance of doubt and by the verdict of the court, Kanu was only discharged and not acquitted.

“Consequently, the appropriate legal options before the authorities will be exploited and communicated accordingly to the public.

“The decision handed down by the court of appeal was on a single issue that borders on rendition.

“Let it be made clear to the general public that other issues that predate rendition on the basis of which Kanu jumped bail remain valid issues for judicial determination.

“The Federal Government will consider all available options open to us on the judgment on rendition while pursuing determination of pre-rendition issues.

The statement was released by Malami’s Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.
