Nigerian Attorney General Denies Buying House For Newly Wedded Son



The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) on Saturday rubbished news of him buying a multimillion naira house for his newly wedded son, Abdulazeez, in Abuja.

In a statement issued by his media aide, Umar Gwandu, Mr. Malami also dissociated himself and his son from claims on social media that COVID-19 guidelines were flouted during Abdulazeez’s wedding held in Kano.

“God knows that I did not purchase any house for him in Abuja. Not even a rented house was secured for my son in Abuja, because he has no plan to live in Abuja,” the AG was quoted as saying in the statement.

“The allegation of hiring private jets for the marriage was preposterous. It is common knowledge that the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice had neither a father nor mother anywhere in Nigeria to be conveyed to Kano for the wedding,” he added.

“Who then is the Attorney-General using the chartered flight to convey? Which jets are chartered? Who paid for the charter? Through which means was the money paid?”

He said the wedding fatiha took place “under strict observance of the protocols and guidelines of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19.”

“It is important to note that the wedding fatiha took place in Kano on Saturday 11th July, 2020 in the morning.

“Any other activity before or after the wedding fatiha is not connected with the marriage and we therefore disassociate ourselves from it in its entirety.”
