Court Makes Pronouncement On Nnamdi Kanu Vs FG’s Case

Listen to article

In lieu of the underlying case between Nnamdi Kanu and the Federal Government, a Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia State, on Wednesday adjourned Nnamdi Kanu’s rendition suit till May 12, 2022.

The imprisoned IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu had filed the suit on behalf of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) through his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor.

Ther Eastern Updates can recall that on the resumption of the case for hearing before the court on March 25, 2022; the High court had made a directive that the parties should address whether it has its territorial jurisdiction which will not be associated with the alleged violations of the fundamental right’s allegations against the Federal Government of Nigeria which had occurred in Kenya.

The High Court had also adjourned the matter for hearing the parties on their written addresses on the territorial jurisdiction to April 27, 2022, at the last hearing

However, it happened that during the resumed hearing on Wednesday, the respondents, namely the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the President and the Attorney General of the Federation have not actually filed the address on point of law as was directed by the court on March 25, 2022 and for this reason, Barrister Amos Enoch, who led other lawyers from the office of the Attorney General who appeared for the other three respondents, pleaded with the Court to grant the respondents an extension of time to file their written addresses.

And after some consideration, the High Court granted their request and adjourned the matter for hearing on the written addresses of the parties to May 12, 2022.

Barrister Aloy Ejimakor’s suit has shown that he is filing for the enforcement of the Fundamental Rights of Nnamdi Kanu which is against his unlawful arrest, torture, unlawful detention, and his right to a fair hearing, and above all, his right against unlawful expulsion.
