The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, who was fingered by one of the suspects arrested in the illegal raid on the residence of Supreme Court judge, Mary Odili, has reacted to the allegations.
Malami said it was only evil minds that would assume that he engaged quack or fake police officer to serve as his consultant.
He described the allegation of his accuser as a case of a drowning man scavenging for a dying partner.
AGF made this known while reacting to the confession of a suspect arrested for the invasion of the residence of Supreme Court Justice, Mary Peter Odili.
Malami speaking on Thursday through his spokesman, Umar Gwandu, explained that with all the competent professionals at Malami’s disposal, it is only evil minds that will assume the AGF engaged “a quack or fake police officer to serve as his consultant”.
The Minister noted that investigation had commenced to unravel the circumstances, personalities behind the invasion and the sponsored campaign of calumny against him.
“This is an orchestrated attempt to stir unnecessary controversies and public apprehension.
“We asked the suspect to present documents of engagements where he worked as a consultant to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, whether in past or now.
“Consultant for what? Which activity or assignment? When was he engaged? What were the terms of references for the alleged consultancy service? When was he engaged?
“Where was he engaged? Which worked has he executed for the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and the Ministry of Justice? For what duration? And for how much?
“We boldly and unequivocally challenge the fake consultant/police officer to come out with answers or responses to these questions to the general public.”
