on Nnamdi Kanu Suit 

A suit filed on behalf of Nnamdi Kanu, the outlawed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), against the Federal for infringement of human rights has been adjourned until December 10th.

The case was adjourned for adoption of processes and a hearing on the substantive application seeking Kanu’s release from detention and repatriation to the United Kingdom, which was heard at the Federal High Court in Abia State on Friday.

Kanu’s lawyer, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, insisted on the early date, arguing that fundamental rights cases are unique and must be resolved quickly, especially in this case, where Kanu has been detained since June of this year.

The High Court of Abia State, sitting in Umuahia, issued an order today prohibiting security agencies from dispatching personnel to the court premises whenever Kanu’s case is heard there.

They were also prohibited from abusing anyone who came to the court to witness Kanu’s proceedings, according to the court.

The order was prompted by a large number of security agents cordoning off the Abia State High Court in Umuahia during the resumed hearing of Kanu’s human rights suit against the Federal and seven others, which was filed on September 7, 2021 by his special counsel, Barrister Ejimakor. Kanu’s arrest in Kenya and subsequent transfer to Nigeria are the main targets of the lawsuit.

The case was rescheduled for today’s hearing before Justice Benson Anya. Security agents were out in force, blocking all entry points to the Courthouse and allowing only court employees, judges, lawyers, and a few members of the media to pass through.

It should be remembered that during the two previous hearings on the matter, a large number of security agents, including soldiers, were stationed at the Court’s premises.

The judge stated in his order that he did not see the need for such a large number of security agents to be deployed to the court, and that in the future, if security agents felt the need to deploy to the court, they should apply to the court for permission to do so.

Ejimakor was in court with several lawyers, including Alaigbo Development Foundation Barristers Patrick Agazie and Max Ozoaka.
