Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja has adjourned a suit by Nnamdi Kanu against the Federal Government, to February 8th, 2024.
In the suit, Kanu accused the FG of kidnapping him from Kenya and bringing him to Nigeria for trial. He also wants an order for his release from the Department of State Services’ custody.
Kanu asked the court to order the FG to pay him N50bn as damages.
In a preliminary objection filed by the Federal Government and Attorney General of Federation (AGF), they described the suit as an abuse of the court process, urging the court to dismiss its process.
The defendants held that Kanu had filed an earlier suit with similar facts before a Federal High Court in Umuahia.
The judge ordered that a hearing notice be issued and served on the defendants who were absent at the proceedings.
