IPOB leader insists on getting $800M compensation from FG
Kanu has said that despite being granted bail, he is still entitled to the $800m compensation for his alleged unlawful arrest and detention in 2015.
Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, is insisting on getting the sum of $800million from the Federal Government over his ‘unlawful detention.’
In a report by Punch, Kanu, through his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has said that despite being granted bail by the Federal High Court in Abuja, he is still entitled to the $800m compensation for his alleged unlawful arrest and detention in 2015.
Kanu is currently being prosecuted alongside others on charges of treasonable felony after declaring a state of Biafra in some south eastern states of Nigeria.
Ejiofor, on behalf of Kanu, made this known while responding to the motion filed by the Federal Government asking the Community Court of the Economic Community of West African States sitting in Abuja to dismiss a fundamental human rights enforcement suit filed by the IPOB leader.
On March 3, 2016, Kanu had filed the suit demanding $800m as compensation from the Federal Government for his alleged unlawful arrest in 2015 and detention.
