The case between the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and the Federal Government took another twist on Wednesday as a cost was awarded in Kanu’s favour.
The Federal Government was ordered by a High Court in Abia State to pay the sum of N1 billion to the IPOB leader and issue a letter of apology to him.
Kanu had approached the Court demanding N5 billion over the invasion of his father’s house by the military on September 10, 2017.
According to his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, the Court presided over by Justice Benson Anya in a ruling on Wednesday, stated that the Federal Government violated the Kanu’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 took to his Twitter page to make this known, 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.”
