Court fines FG N500m over Nnamdi Kanu’s illegal extradition

The Federal High Court sitting in Umuahia, Wednesday, instructed the Federal Government to pay N500 million damages to the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for his forcible extradition and incredible rendition from Kenya.

Presiding Judge, Justice Evelyn Anyadike, who gave the judgment said that the Federal Government and its agencies grossly violated Kanu’s fundamental human rights by illegally renditioning him back to Nigeria without due process.

The court ordered the Federal Government to return the IPOB Leader to Kenya where he was before the June 19 2021 fierce disappearance from the East African country.

The ruling is coming barely one week after the Court of Appeal in Abuja declared Kanu’s rendition to Nigeria illegal, saying it did not follow due process, and infringed all known International treaties signed by Nigeria.

The appellate court proclaimed that the Federal Government had lost the legality to put the IPOB leader on trial.
