Latest UPDATE On Nnamdi Kanu’s Case

The Federal High Court in Abuja has adjourned the hearing of a fresh N1 billion suit filed by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), against the Federal Government. The hearing is now scheduled for March 18, 2024, to allow the plaintiff to serve the defence in the suit.

Kanu’s claims include the forcible seizure and photocopying of confidential legal documents related to his defence, the denial of his rights to be defended by legal practitioners of his choice, and infringement on his right to a fair hearing. He is seeking an official letter of apology, as well as N1 billion in damages for mental, emotional, psychological, and other damages resulting from the alleged breach of his rights.

The respondents in the suit include the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Attorney-General of the Federation, the Department of State Service (DSS), and its Director-General.

In other news, Nigeria’s Supreme Court has reinstated terrorism charges against Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), despite a lower court ruling that dropped the charges.

The Supreme Court overturned the lower court’s decision, stating that the violation of Kanu’s rights during his arrest and extradition from Kenya in 2021 did not justify the dismissal of the charges.
