Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says the Federal
government will not teleguide the judiciary on what to do or what not to
do with the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Nnamdi
Kanu.
Recall that two weeks ago, the Federal government through the
Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, filed an
application at the Federal High court Abuja seeking for the revocation
of Kanu’s bail. The Federal government drew the attention of the court
to Kanu’s open disregard for his bail conditions.

Lai Mohammed while speaking to some editors who visited him in his
office in Abuja yesterday, said the government will not in anyway
dictate to the court what action to take regarding Kanu’s disobedience.

‘‘The matter is purely a judicial matter. Once a matter is in the
court, it is for the court to say these condition I set for you, you
have respected them or not. We would not tele-guide the court on what to
do or what not to do.  As a government, we have a right to go to court
and lodge a complaint that you  gave a condition and the accused has
obeyed or disobeyed the terms of the bail, then the decision will be
left to court to decide. This is simple judicial overture which has no
political overtone.’’
