The Minister of Justice and Solicitor-General of the Government of Alberta, Canada, Kelechi Madu, has slammed the Nigerian Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, over the re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB).
Through a post on his LinkedIn page, the Canadian Justice Minister, stated that if reports that Kanu was abducted from Kenya were indeed true, then Abubakar Malami was not only a disgrace to the rule of law but also not worthy to be in public service. According to Madu,
“The Attorney-General of Nigeria, Abubakar Malami, is a disgrace to the rule of law and not worthy to be an officer of the court.
“He has shown himself to be a bigot who does not understand what it means to live in a pluralistic society governed by the dictates of the rule of law.”
The Canadian Minister went on to call on the international community and leaders of nations to use all their power to ensure “real consequences for these arbitrary violations of internationally accepted democratic norms and rules that govern civilized people.”
He wrote; “Nigeria is burning, and the people of Nigeria, except those who are holding the country down, want out.
“You cannot destroy the hope and aspirations of a people destined for greatness and expect them to bow down in servitude.

“You cannot destroy a generation of people and expect them not to fight for their freedom. The power of guns, state-sponsored terrorism will not achieve peace or the preservation of Nigeria.
“The Igbo and other ethnic groups in Nigeria who are calling for Nigeria to be renegotiated do not seek violence or war. They seek peace. They seek progress and the advancement of their people. They seek fairness, safety, equity, and justice for their people.
“They seek the opportunity for their children to grow up and achieve their God-given abundant potential.
“They seek the rise of a people with the work ethic, intellect and capacity to be a truly global super power on the continent of Africa. They seek dignity over inhumane treatment. They seek life over death.
“Friends of the black world must unite and liberate the people of Nigeria from this bondage and from the claws of corrupt and inept politicians who have no business being near the corridor of Nigeria’s political power.”
