The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, says he is not happy with the reaction of South-west governors to the Magodo land dispute.
The Minister, in a statement, said that the Southwest Governors’ comments were unjustifiable insults against the office of the Attorney General over the execution of a judgment of the Supreme Court.
He added that the role of the executive is, in this respect, simply to aid the maintenance of law and order in due compliance with rule of law arising from giving effect to the judgment of the Supreme Court.
It would be recalled that the southwest governors had earlier in a statement condemned the action of a Chief Superintendent of Police, who publicly defied the order of the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to vacate the Magodo Phase II Estate along with his men.
The governors gave the condemnation in a statement, which was signed by Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.
