Nnamdi Kanu

The Abia State High Court has fixed November 2 for the hearing of fundamental rights suit filed by leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

This was issued in a statement by Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, on Thursday.

Ejimakor had on August 27, 2021, filed the case, demanding that the Federal Government return the secessionist to Kenya where he was “abducted”.

He also demanded N5 billion from the government over alleged gross violation of Kanu’s fundamental rights.

The statement read, “For the information of the general public, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s Fundamental Rights suit pending before the High Court of Abia State has been assigned and set down for hearing on 2nd November, 2021.

“On this date, the Nigerian government and its Attorney-General will be expected to move their extant application for extension of time to file their defense to the suit and my opposition to the application.

“It is my intention to, on the spot, move for a Ruling on their application for extension of time, so that the case can proceed quickly to the next level, which is expected to be a definitive hearing on the substantive matter.

“Fundamental Rights suits are intended to be concluded quickly, especially in situations such as this where my Client, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (the Applicant) is currently incarcerated.”
