Renowned lawyer Professor Itse Sagay (SAN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to order the immediate probe of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami.
Sagay said Malami’s role in the return of former Chairman of the Presidential Task Team on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, was disappointing.
The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), however, agreed with Malami that the Senate was being overzealous by probing his role in the Maina scandal.
“As the Attorney General, you met a fugitive who is wanted for a very heinous crime of depriving thousands of elderly people of their rights.
“You don’t, for any reason, go to hold discussions with such a person.
“Your job should be to extradite and try him. He compromised himself by meeting with him.
“He says he didn’t write any letter regarding the reinstatement of Maina but the letter emanated from his ministry. So, let the President investigate the Attorney General.” he told Punch.
