Nnamdi Kanu: Abia High Court Awards N1billion in Damages, As Federal High Court Adjourns Case to February

BoomRadioNG | January 20, 2022

A high court in Abia state court has ordered the federal government to pay the sum of N1billion in damages to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu over the infringement of his fundamental human rights.

The judgement was given by Justice Benson Anya, who said the damages to be paid to Kanu were for the invasion of his house.

The court also ruled that the Umuahia High Court has jurisdiction to rule on extradition cases as one of the applications was solely on the status.

Subsequently, the Federal High Court in Abuja has also adjourned the trial of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), until February, after he was re-arraigned on fresh charges filed against him by the federal government of Nigeria as he pleaded not guilty to all charges.

He was initially scheduled to be re-arraigned before the court on Tuesday, but the judge, Binta Nyako, had to adjourn the case after the defense team complained about the late service of the amended charges on them.
