The President Muhammadu Buhari administration has hailed Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s decision to form a legal team to monitor the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader was extradited late June will return to court on July 26.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami said Ohanaeze’s position is in line with the doctrine of the right of fair hearing rooted in Section 36 of the constitution.

A statement on Monday said the body demonstrated their belonging to Nigeria and succumbed to the rule of law while reiterating that they were not averse to the trial of Nnamdi Kanu.

“The group showed a mature departure from the mindset of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra when Ohanaeze said they “do not support the use of any form of violence” while channeling concerns and presenting demands”, the AGF said.

Malami added that by urging the youths to be law-abiding and asking them to obtain voter’s card to enable them contribute to national development, Ohanaeze deserves commendation.

The minister said the Buhari-led Federal Government respects the rule of law and does not advocate for the breach.

“Hence, with or without the so-called monitoring group, justice will be adequately served to Nnamdi Kanu in compliance with the enshrined provisions of the law.”

Malami expressed hope that the legal monitoring group will be guided by nothing but the rule of law in the process so as to convey the judgment of the court as delivered to their people.
