Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Defeats Federal Government in ECOWAS Court

Members of the indigenous People of Biafra are in jubilant mood following the latest victory by Nnamdi Kanu against the Federal Government.

IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu

 

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has defeated the Federal Government at the ECOWAS court today.

 

The ECOWAS court sitting in Abuja today dismissed the application filed by the federal government asking that the suit filed by the Nnamdi Kanu be quashed.

 

According to Channels TV, the suit by the IPOB leader is seeking his unconditional release and 800 million U.S dollars in damages.

 

The Federal Government in its application had asked the court to dismiss the case because it is a subject matter before the Federal High Court and the Appeal court and as such, it constitutes an abuse of court process.

 

Presiding judge, Justice Micah Wright-Williams, in his ruling, however dismissed the application for lacking in merit, because according to him, the ECOWAS court has the jurisdiction to hear cases of infringement of human rights.
