Detained Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has filled a fresh suit at a Federal High Court sitting in Umuahia, Abia State, seeking the enforcement of his fundamental human rights violated by the Federal Government following his extra ordinary rendition from Kenya in June 2021.

Kanu in the suit filed by his Special Counsel, Mr Aloy Ejimakor, “seeks an order of the court to declare that the arrest of the Applicant in Kenya by the Respondents’ agents without due process of law is arbitrary, and the Respondents’ enforced disappearance of the Applicant for eight days and their refusal to produce the Applicant before a Kenyan Court for the purpose of Applicant’s extradition is illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional and amount to infringement of the Applicant’s fundamental right against arbitrary arrest, to his personal liberty and to fair hearing as enshrined and guaranteed under the pertinent provisions of CFRN and the Charter.”

The suit marked: FHC/UM/CS/30/2022/, also seeks ” a declaration that the detention of the Applicant in a non-official secret facility in Kenya and the torture of the Applicant in Kenya by the Respondents’ agents is illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional and amount to infringement of the Applicant’s fundamental right against unlawful detention, torture and to fair hearing, as enshrined and guaranteed under the pertinent provisions of CFRN and the Charter”.

Respondents to the suit include the Federal Government, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and the Attorney General of the Federation.
