The immediate-past Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, says he will appear before the disciplinary panel of the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee on Friday to face the petitioners seeking the stripping of his Senior Advocate of Nigeria rank for alleged misconduct.
Malami, who confirmed this to The PUNCH on Monday, said apart from the petition filed against him by some family members of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, another one was filed against him by ‘Interstellar’.
