In a recent statement, he revealed that he was in not in any way linked to Sanusi’s problems and he will not speak further on the matter because it is already in court.
According to him, the issue of who does what over the dethronement saga has been effectively submitted for judicial determination, so we can only wait for the court’s verdict.
He added that it is a saga that should end soon.
His words, “Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN was not in any way connected with the dethronement of the former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II and his subsequent banishment to Nassarawa State.
“The issue of who does what over the dethronement saga has been effectively submitted for judicial determination. The matter is consequently sub judice.”
“Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice will not comment one way or the other over a matter that is pending before the court.”
