A suit filed on behalf of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, against the Federal Government for infringement of human rights has been adjourned by a Federal High Court in Abia State.
A member of Kanu’s legal counsel, Aloy Ejimakor disclosed this in an interview with our correspondent on Tuesday.
Kanu had sued the Nigerian government and the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF Abubakar Malami, SAN, through his lawyers.
The suit involves the IPOB leader’s extradition, alleged maltreatment by security operatives, and eventual release.
The lawsuit was set for hearing on November 2, 2021, by the court.
However, Ejimakor told our correspondent that the case had been postponed.
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s human rights suit, which was scheduled for November 2, 2021, has been delayed by the Federal High Court in Abia until November 19, 2021,” he said.
