A Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia State, on Tuesday, reserved October 27, 2022 for ruling on Nnamdi Kanu ’s 8-point application over the alleged Federal Government’s attack on his country home and extraordinary rendition from Kenya.
The suit is sui generis (of a special class) and it is primarily aimed at redressing the infamous unlawful expulsion or extraordinary rendition of Nnamdi Kanu, which is said to be a violation of his fundamental rights under Article 12(4) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, as well as Chapter IV of the Nigerian Constitution.
In addition to the rendition, the special counsel for Nnamdi Kanu/IPOB, Aloy Ejimakor, is asking the court to redress the myriad violations that came with the rendition, such as the torture, the unlawful detention and the denial of the right to fair hearing which is required by law before anybody can be expelled from one country to the other.
“I am also seeking to halt his prosecution and restore him to the status quo before his rendition on 19th June, 2021”, Ejimakor said.
In her decision, Justice Evelyn Anyadike, reserved judgment till October 27.
