Court Declares Nnamdi Kanu’s Arrest As Illegal, Orders Nigerian Government To Pay Him N1billion

The judge on Wednesday also ruled that his abduction and forceful return to Nigeria was “illegal” under local and international laws.

Justice Benson Anya of the Abia State High Court has ruled that the invasion of the security agents to the residence of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, in 2017 was unlawful and an infringement on his human rights.

The judge on Wednesday also ruled that his abduction and forceful return to Nigeria was “illegal” under local and international laws.

Anya also ruled that the Nigerian government should pay Kanu a sum of N1billion as a compensation for the violation of his fundamental human rights.

Recall that Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor filed the lawsuit against the Nigerian government on August 27, 2021 before the Abia court.
