Meanwhile,  Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has won a court battle against the Nigerian government on Wednesday in Abia State.

The Nigerian government’s challenge to the High Court’s jurisdiction to hear Kanu’s fundamental rights suit was rejected by Justice Ben Anya of the Abia State High Court.

Kanu had filed the fundamental human rights suit against the Nigerian government through his special counsel, Aloy Ejimakor.

In the lawsuit, Ejimakor argued that the invasion of the IPOB leader’s home in Abia State in 2017 was illegal and an infringement of his constitutional rights.

He asked the court to declare his detention and torture in Kenya last year unconstitutional.

The suit, which Ejimakor filed in August, also asked the court to order the Nigerian government to stop prosecuting Kanu and to release him and apologize to him, among other things.

During today’s proceedings, however, the Nigerian government contested the court’s jurisdiction to hear the case.

This was revealed in a tweet by Ejimakor.

“Breaking: MNK wins as the Abia High Court dismisses the Nigerian government’s challenge to the court’s jurisdiction to hear Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s fundamental rights case.” “Judgment on other matters is still pending,” Ejimakor wrote.
