The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), however, avoided questions on the reason for Sowore’s rearrest, just as he also explained that, he was on a courtesy call, to congratulate the judge on his confirmation by the Senate as the substantive Chief Judge of the Federal High and not over Sowore’s case.

Hear him, “It is about tradition and not a coincidence but then the truth of the matter is, I’m not here about Sowore’s case. I’m here to visit his lordship to congratulate him over his appointment but one thing about the judicial process; I think it is not the only case that the federal government is involved’.

“As you rightly know, we have multiple cases and more serious cases than that of Sowore pending before the court generally, so the case of Sowore is certainly not an exception, so I cannot be here for an exclusive case’.

Penpushing further reports that, Malami  when questioned on his view about the court invasion by the security operatives  said, “Whatever affects the integrity of the court is a worrisome issue for us. I can never be preemptive of an incident over which I was not a live witness to.”

“But one thing I am certain of is that the government has put in place mechanism for investigation of the reported incident. So, I would not like to be preemptive in terms of a conclusion, one way or the other, without allowing the consummation and conclusion of the investigation process.”
