Nnamdi Kanu Drops N20bn Suit Against FG
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has discontinued the N20bn suit field against the Attorney-General of the Federation Abubakar Malami and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency Ahmed Abubaka9r.
In the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1702/222, dated and filed on September 23, Kanu listed Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation and Ahmed Abubakar, director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) as the first and second defendants, respectively.
Kanu had sought a declaration that the defendant’s arrest, imprisonment of the plaintiff (Kanu) in Kenya and the subsequent imprisonment of the plaintiff in the aircraft that conveyed him to Nigeria, amounted to false arrest and false imprisonment.
“A declaration of this honourable court that the defendants acted in bad faith and/or abused their public offices in falsely arresting and falsely imprisoning the plaintiff at the said location in Kenya and said aircraft;
“An order of this honourable court directing the defendants to, jointly and severally, pay to the plaintiff the sum of N20,000,000,000.00 being general and exemplary damages;
“An order of this honourable court directing the defendants to separately write and deliver to the plaintiff an unreserved personal letter of apology.”
The suit was brought before Justice Inyan Ekwo of the Federal high court, Abuja. Justice Inyang Ekwo had fixed November 18 for the hearing of the suit.
However, in a tweet on Thursday, Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu’s special counsel said the suit, has been “discontinued”.
“Update on #MNK outstanding cases in which I’m directly involved. “The UK case is awaiting a decision,” he said.
“Federal high court case for November 18 is discontinued.
“The AU (African Union) case is awaiting a decision.
“United Nations Opinion has been escalated to other tribunals.
“The Kenyan case is set for February 2023, (sad).”
