Unlawful Expulsion: Court to hear Nnamdi Kanu’s fundamental rights suit today


A Federal High Court sitting in Umuahia, Abia State is set to hear the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Justice Evelyn Anyadike will preside over the first hearing of the case on Friday, Kanu’s lawyer Aloy Ejimakor said in a statement. The IPOB leader, in the suit, is seeking four declarations and orders of the court respectively, over his arrest in Kenya and extradition back to the country.

In one of the declarations, he wants the court to hold that his arrest in Kenya ‘without due process of law’ is illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional.

Kanu also sought an order of injunction restraining and prohibiting the Federal Government from taking any further step in any criminal prosecution against him.
