The Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has resolved to go to court, over a series of allegations against him, on Monday.
He made the announcement on Monday, through his Media Aide, Umar Gwandu.
Malami said that the publications have subjected him to “considerable distress, psychological trauma, anxiety, and greatly injured his character and reputation”.
The AGF disclosed that his person is suffering from “what appears like a coordinated attack”.
He insisted that the publications are untrue, fabrications, and a figment of the imagination of the authors.
Malami noted that he has been receiving telephone calls and visits “from well-meaning Nigerians, his friends, well-wishers, and associates, from all over the world”.
The Minister said that the publications against him are contrary to the Nigerian Criminal and Penal Laws, and a gross violation of his rights.
“A Senior Lawyer has already been briefed to deal with the matter as may be appropriate, in the event of failure to retract the publication in question, and offer the requested apology within seven days”, the statement said.
