Court has ordered the FG to pay Nnamdi Kanu N1 billion damages.
Glamtush reports that Justice Benson Anya of the Abia State High Court has ordered the federal government to pay the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, the sum of N1 Billion over infringement of his fundamental rights and issue a letter of apology to him.
The court said the damages to be paid to Kanu were for the invasion of his house.
Kanu had approached the Court demanding N5 billion over the invasion of his father’s house by the military on September 10, 2017.
In a ruling on Wednesday, according to his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, the Court presided over by Justice Benson Anya stated that the Federal Government violated the IPOB leader’s fundamental rights.
The Court also recommended political solution to the agitation for the restoration of the defunct Biafra Republic championed by IPOB.
Kanu’s lawyer made this known in a tweet, saying, “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu WINS as Abia High Court rules that the Federal Government violated his fundamental rights. Orders the Federal government to pay N1b to him and issue a letter of apology to him.
“Most importantly, the Court recommended political solution to the #Biafran agitation.”
