The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said the Federal Government was right in detaining Omoyele Sowore and Sambo Dasuki, former National Security Adviser, despite court orders.
Malami said the Federal Government has the right to detain Sowore and Dasuki despite court orders for their release because there was a pending appeal at the Supreme Court.
Featuring on NTA, Malami insisted that the Federal Government never erred as the Supreme Court was yet to determine an appeal against the orders.
The Department of State Services, DSS, had held Sowore and Dasuki in custody despite several court orders for their release.
However, a few weeks ago, Malami had ordered the DSS to hands-off the prosecution of Sowore.
