The elder statement, Junaid Mohammed has alleged that Minister of Justice and Attorney, Abubakar Malami threatened him with juju when he told him he is a charge and bail lawyer.
In an exclusive interview with PlatinumPost, Mohammed maintained that Malami is unfit for the office of the Attorney General of the federation.
The second republic lawmaker who accused Malami of abuse of office challenged him to explain the sources of his stupendous wealth since he assumed the Justice Minister.
“The appointment of Abubakar Malami the current attorney general and I still maintain that because I just see him as charge and bail lawyer even though he claims that he is SAN and he was even threatening me with juju,” he said.
Continuing, he claimed: “I said that because of the way he handled sensitive matters of national input, aside from that he has been confirming my impression of him and I have heard very senior lawyers that everything I said about him has come to pass and everything I said was also the impression of the overall known majority of senior lawyers in this country. And I have had judges from the supreme court, court of appeal and some of the other courts, judges telling me that they agree with me entirely with my evaluation.
“No matter how competent the attorney general is, if he comes through by way of politics, he is bound to be a politician. We now have evidence, serious evidence of corruption, with mansions in kano that not even only in Kano Malami, has similar mansions in other places.
“A man who came into Kano to start work, living in a rented house, is now telling us that he has always been a very prosperous businessman, he can tell that to the marines they can believe anything but not to the average kano man and certainly not the average Nigerian.
“Kano people have written and spoken. We haven’t heard anything from the president, or the BAR association or anybody else. This is the tragedy of the nature of the appointment. I hope they are going to amend the EFCC act, and not amend it along the lines Malami wants it amended, but along the lines of the national interest.
“This attorney general, is the least competent, the least honest, the most incredible quacked and we want to continue deceiving ourselves that we are fighting corruption.”
