Court dismisses Nnamdi Kanu’s N1bn suit against FG



Court dismisses Nnamdi Kanu’s N1bn suit against FG

A federal high court in Abuja dismissed a N1bn suit filed by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), against the Nigerian government and the Department of State Services (DSS).

The suit, delivered on Monday, by Justice James Omotosho, alleged violations of Kanu’s fundamental rights while in detention.

However, Judge Omotosho ruled that Kanu failed to present sufficient evidence to support his claims.

Kanu’s lawyers had argued that the DSS denied him access to his legal counsel and engaged in illegal eavesdropping on their conversations.

Justice Omotosho found these claims unsubstantiated by credible evidence.
