JUST IN!!! Nnamdi Kanu set to get victory as Abia Court resumes hearing today

Published

As the High Court of Abia State begins hearings on the case today, Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel for Nnamdi Kanu, the incarcerated leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, expressed confidence that his client would prevail against the Federal Government, Ecocitytv News reports.

In an interview with The PUNCH on Monday, the lawyer said Kanu’s case was comparable to that of Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

Ejimakor stated that the September 17 judgment of an Oyo State High Court, which awarded N20 billion in damages against the Department of State Services for the invasion of Igboho’s Ibadan residence and destruction of his property, was instructive that his client would win today before Justice K. C. J. Okereke of the Abia State High Court.

The case which was adjourned to September 21 would come up today in the Abia State capital, Umuahia, by 9am.

Barrister Ejimakor while speaking to newsmen said, “I have confidence that the Abia Court will uphold the law. The Oyo State High Court judgment in Igboho’s case (which is similar to Kanu) is instructive and underscores the wide powers of State High Courts when it comes to enforcement of fundamental rights.”

The lawyer also said, “The Court will check in its file whether proof of service on each of the eight respondents have been filed in the Court’s file.

“Given that the Suit was filed on 7th September, it is expected that service of process must have been completed by now. And if service was accomplished, the Respondents have five days to file their counter affidavit from the date of completion of service.

“Where a respondent fails to respond within five days, such respondent shall be deemed to have admitted the facts averred in the affidavit and judgment shall be entered in favor Nnamdi Kanu.”

According to the PUNCH, Kanu asked the court on September 7 to award him N5 billion in damages for the violation of his fundamental human rights, which began with the 2017 extrajudicial assassination attempt in Abia, his involuntary flight to safety/exile, his kidnapping in Kenya, and his extradition to Nigeria.

Demand For Nnamdi Kanu’s Immediate Release — Metuh Tells South East Governors

Published

By

Chief Olisa Metuh, former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party has urged Governors of the South East to demand for the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Metuh gave the advice in a statement titled, “Use Enugu Meeting to Demand Nnamdi Kanu’s Release, Metuh Urges S/E Governors,” which he signed and made available via email, on Monday.

He enjoined the governors to use their proposed Enugu meeting to make the demand.

Metuh said, “As governors and leaders of the southeast zone converge in Enugu to find solutions to the security challenges in the zone, one sure step towards achieving answers is for our leaders to use the opportunity to demand for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention.

“It is a considered submission that the release of Nnamdi Kanu will not only douse tension in the region but also put an end to allegations and counter-allegations regarding those behind the escalated insecurity in the zone and give our security agencies a clearer cue to track down the perpetrators.”

His appeal is coming against the backdrop of denials by IPOB that it was not involved in the series of senseless killings and arson in the zone.

The former PDP spokesperson further said, “authorities should therefore use the release of Nnamdi Kanu to eliminate the current puzzlement and complications as well as a political solution for situations that constitute unrest in the South East.

“It is therefore imperative for our governors and leaders to use this meeting to impress upon the Federal Government to adopt a political approach by releasing Nnamdi Kanu.”
