The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, says despite the court ruling asking Nigeria to return the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu to Kenya and pay him 500 million Naira as compensation, the Federal Government is not inclined to free him based on several factors.

Malami in an interview yesterday said that the rendition of Kanu could not be used as the only basis to free him of other offenses allegedly committed by him against the Federal Government of Nigeria, explaining that the government was holding on to him on account of four major issues, which were preceded by the rendition matter for which the court cleared him.

He said to release him or not is a function of law and the rule of law, the public and the national interest, the security situation, and international diplomacy.

It would be recalled that the Appeal Court in Abuja and a Federal High Court in Abia State have all freed Kanu on the basis of the fact that he was arrested without explanation in Kenya and returned to Nigeria to face charges after fleeing the country several years ago.
