BREAKING: IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu Floors Buhari Government In Court

Nnamdi Kanu on Wednesday defeated the Nigerian government at the Abia State High Court.

Infoexpert24 reports that Justice Ben Anya of the High Court sitting in Abia State rejected the Nigerian government’s challenge of its jurisdiction to hear Kanu’s fundamental rights suit.

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, through his special counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, had initiated the fundamental human rights suit against the Nigerian government.

In the suit, Ejimakor had urged the court to declare the invasion of the residence of the IPOB leader in Abia State in 2017 as unlawful and an infringement of his constitutional right.

He urged the court to declare Nnamdi Kanu‘s rearrest and torture in Kenya last year as unlawful.

The suit, which Ejimakor filed in August, further sought the court to stop the Nigerian government from prosecuting Kanu, mandating it to release the IPOB leader and tender an apology to Kanu, among others.

But, during today’s proceedings, the Nigerian government challenged the jurisdiction of the court to hear the suit.

This was disclosed by Ejimakor in a tweet.

“Breaking: MNK wins as Abia High Court rejects Nigerian government’s challenge to its jurisdiction to hear Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s fundamental rights suit. Judgment on other issues still in progress,” Ejimakor wrote.
