AGF Abubakar Malami Trades On Cryptocurrency, Uses VPN To Access Twitter Both Are Banned By FG |RN

By Ike A. Offor

Attorney General of the federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, posted on Facebook yesterday that he deactivated his Twitter, he was unaware that VPN was clearly shown on the screenshot he took to prove his point.

Also revealed was the banned cryptocurrency trading, which was handed down by the Central Bank. His screenshot which he displayed showed that he traded on cryptocurrency using LATOKEN.

Cryptocurrency was banned few months ago by the Central Bank of Nigeria, but to see that the man doubling as Attorney General and Minister of Justice was defying the entire law he was appointed to defend is a new low in Nigeria government.

The question is who are these folks fooling with their shenanigans and why such wicked moves to punish the people they’re supposed to build and support their well-being?

Why is an African leader extremely wicked towards their own people they’re meant to help build their future?

Clearly, Abubakar Malami knew the gains of cryptocurrency trading, which is why he is still engaging in it so, why didn’t he advise his boss not to ban it?

So, it is clear that their ban on these were merely a charade for public stunt and relation. But privately, they engage in those things they banned the public from doing. That is really very sad indeed.

Court Strikes Out Charge Against Ex-Bank MD, Akingbola, 5 Others |The Republican News

From: Lukman Olabiyi

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, on Friday, withdrew a seven-count criminal charge filed against a former Managing Director of Mainstreet Bank Registrars, Mr Oluwadare Akingbola, and five others before a Federal High Court, Lagos.

Others listed as defendants in the suit alongside Akingbola were Chairman of the firm, Sulaiman Adedokun; Adegbami Adegoke Elijah; Patrick Okoh; Dauda Taiwo Oluwasshola and Olufemi Charles Olanihun.

At the resumed hearing of the matter, on Friday, which was fixed for the arraignment of the defendants, the prosecutor, Henry Obiazi, informed Justice Hadizat Rabiu-Shagari, that the Inspector General of Police had instructed the prosecution to return the case file.

Obiazi told the court that the IGP’s decision was a sequel to a letter received from the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), whom he said wanted to re-assign the matter for reinvestigation.

Obiazi also told the court that the decision of the IGP was brought pursuant to section 108(1) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015.

He, therefore, urged the court to strike out the charge against the defendants, pending when IGP will order for the suspects’ prosecution.

In the same vein, lawyer to Akingbola and others, Mr E. Udeh, told the court that prior to the withdrawal of the charge against his clients, he had written a letter to the court to strike out the charge for being defective, since the prosecution failed to attach proof-of-evidence with the charge.

Udeh cited several authorities to support his call for striking out the charge against his clients.

Satisfied with the submissions of the prosecution and defence teams, the judge, Justice Hadizat Rabiu-Shagari, struck out the charge against all the suspects.  (The Sun)
