Ipaye noted that the government had in deed studied the two judgments delivered by the Appeal Court very closely and concluded that there were grounds for appeal.
The Attorney General said this step the government was taken would also ensure that all issues were fully articulated and that the victim’s family, the defendants and the society were not deprived of the last window of opportunity provided by the constitution for the resolution of the case.
Ipaye said government was committed to ensuring that law abiding residents and visitors continued to live, work and pursue their various aspirations in a safe and secured environment.
