Aloy Ejimakor, lawyer to the embattled leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu says he is saddened after a Federal High Court in Abia State adjourned a suit he filed on behalf of his client against the Federal Government for the enforcement of his human rights.
Recall that Kanu through his lawyers had filed a lawsuit against the Nigerian government and the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF Abubakar Malami, SAN.
The suit is regarding matters relating to the IPOB leader’s extradition, alleged maltreatment by security operatives and his release.
The court had assigned the suit for hearing on November 2, 2021, but Ejimakor told journalists on Tuesday that the case has been adjourned to November 19, 2021.
Ejimakor said, “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s human rights suit which was slated for November 2, 2021, has been adjourned to November 19, 2021, by the Federal High Court in Abia.
“We are saddened by this development which primarily seeks the unconditional release of Kanu from his illegal detentions.”
Kanu is being held in the facilities of the Department of State Services as he awaits trial by the Nigerian government.
