A High Court in Umuahia has on Wednesday ordered the federal government and the Nigerian Army to pay N1bn to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
This is following a suit by Nnamdi Kanu that FG breached his fundamental human rights when operatives of the Nigerian Army invaded his house in September 2017.
The presiding judge, Justice Benson Anya also ordered the federal government and the Army to apologise to Kanu for the violation of his Fundamental Rights.
Elated by the ruling, Kanu’s lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, tweeted; “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.”
