The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has sued NIG DG. This is as a result of the NIG DG imprisoning him in Kenya for eight days. This was done before he was extradited to Nigeria.
This information was disclosed by the special counsel of the IPOB leader. Alloy Ejimakor took to his twitter handle to disclose this on Wednesday. He posted a picture of the suit filed. In the picture he described Nmamdi Kanu’s detention in Kenya as “false imprisonment”
Alloy mentioned that the suit was prompted by new evidence gathered implicating the DG beyond the “infamous extraordinary rendition”
Ejimakor said, “Yesterday (Wednesday) I filed a suit against Ahmed Abubakar, the DG of National Intelligence Agency (NIA) for his eight days ‘false imprisonment’ of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in discovereed evidence that implicated the DG/NIA beyond the infamous extraordinary rendition.”
According to the suit, the court gave NIA DG 14 days to appear or be represented in court. Adding that failure to show up will imply that judgment will be given in the DG’s absence.
The suit filed in the High Court of Abia State reads in part, “You are hereby commanded that within 14 days after the service of this Writ on you inclusive of the day of such service, you do cause an appearance to be entered for you in the Umuahia Judicial Division of the High Court in Abia State in an action at this suit of Mazi Nnnamdi Kanu….and take notice that in default of your so doing, the claimant may proceed therein and judgment may be given in your absence.
Nnamdi Kanu, The claimant’s claim is for:
(i) A declaration of this Honourable Court that the defandant’s arrest of the claimant and his imprisonment of the claimant at said location in Nairobi, Kenya amounted to false arrest and false imprisonment.
“(ii) A declaration that the defendant acted in bad faith and/or abused his public office in falsely imprisoning the claimant at the said location in Kenya. (iii) An order of this Honourable Court directing the defendant to pay the claimant the sum of N20,000,000,000.00 (Twenty Billion Naira only) being general and exemplary damages…”
