Unic Press UK: A former Attorney General of Nigeria, Abubakar Malami, has been summoned by the Disciplinary Panel of the Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee over the comments he made in relation to the detained former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, during an interview he granted to the Voice of America (Hausa service) on July 13, 2018, the Premium Times reports.
The Hearing Notice reference No: PET/LPPC/23/2018 of the Disciplinary Committee of the Legal Practitioners’ Privilege Committee reads:
“Take notice that the above matter is fixed for hearing by the Disciplinary Committee of the Legal Practitioner Privileged Committee of the Office of Registrar Supreme Court of Nigeria Abuja on June 14, 2019, at 11.00 o’clock in the forenoon.”
Malami is alleged by the Dasuki family to have implied during the interview that the Nigerian government is not bound by a series of court orders for the release of the former NSA, Dasuki, who the former AGF claims to be responsible for numerous death when he allegedly said:
“Remember, we are talking about a person who was instrumental to the deaths of over 100,000 people. Are you saying that the rights of one person are more important than that of 100,000 who lost their lives?”
