Why Nnamdi Kanu will appear in Court today.

The Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia state is set to hear an extraordinary rendition suit filed by the leader of the proscribed group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, today.


The suit was filed before the court by Kanu’s lawyers in March 2022 to redress the “‘infamous unlawful expulsion or extraordinary rendition of Nnamdi Kanu” which was described as violation of fundamental rights.


Kanu is seeking, among others, for the Court to give an order of injunction restraining and prohibiting the respondents from taking any further step in any criminal prosecution against him as well as an order to make the respondents pay a sum of twenty five billion naira to him as damages.


Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, in his statement noted that the incident in Kenya was a clear violation of Kanu’s fundamental rights under Article 12(4) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, as well as Chapter IV of the Nigerian Constitution.


Ejimakor added that the Court should redress the several violations that came with the rendition, such as torture, unlawful detention and denial of right to fair hearing required by law before anybody can be expelled from one country to another.


He also seeks to stop Kanu’s prosecution and restore him to his status quo before his rendition on 19th June, 2021.
