Breaking: Nnamdi breaks silence, demands $800m compensation

Breaking: Nnamdi breaks silence, demands $800m compensation

The leader of the proscribed people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has spoken from his hiding place, stating that he is still entitled to the $800m compensation for his alleged unlawful arrest and detention in 2015.

Nnamdi Kanu is facing a treasonable felony charge the Federal Government preferred against him and four other pro-Biafra agitators.

Justice Nyako had in a ruling on April 25th, released Kanu on bail after he had spent a year and seven months in detention, though the court okayed his co-defendants to remain in prison custody.

The Federal Government through its lawyer, Mrs Maimuna Shiru, filed its motion on November 13, stating that Kanu having been granted bail by the Federal Government, jumped bail, the judgement on the ECOWAS Court on the suit would serve no purpose.

Kanu through his lawyer, Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor objected to the Federal Government’s motion contending that granting bail to the IPOB leader was just a partial satisfaction of prayers sought in the suit.

Ejiofor maintained that the ECOWAS Court had the power to grant his client the $800m compensation sought since the IPOB leader’s right has been violated.

This was stated in a written statement which reads: “we submit therefore that the court has powers to order for payment of compensatory damages when found that the plantiff’s right has been violated.”
