Court Orders Nigerian Govt To Pay Nnamdi Kanu N1bn And Seek Political Resolution

Kanu had approached the Court demanding N5 billion over the invasion of his father’s house by the military on September 10, 2017.

In a ruling on Wednesday, according to his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, the Court presided over by Justice Benson Anya stated that the Federal Government violated the leader’s fundamental rights.

The Court also recommended a political solution to the agitation for the restoration of the defunct Republic championed by IPOB.

Kanu’s lawyer made this known in a tweet, saying, “Mazi WINS as Abia High Court rules that the Federal Government violated his fundamental rights. Orders the Federal government to pay N1b to him and issue a letter of apology to him.

“Most importantly, the Court recommended political solution to the #Biafran agitation.”
