A N50 billion suit filed by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has been adjourned.
The Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday adjourned the suit filed by Kanu against the Nigerian Government, until April 27 for further mention.
Justice Inyang Ekwo adjourned the matter after Aloy Ejimakor, the lawyer who appeared for Kanu, informed the court that he had just filed a notice for a change of counsel.
Ejimakor told the court that he would be taking over the case from Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, who filed the suit on April 7, 2022.
Justice Ekwo directed the lawyer to find out if a similar matter was not pending before any sister court or other courts, or if a judgment had not been delivered in a similar suit.
The judge, who observed that no counsel appeared for the defendants, ordered that a hearing notice be issued and served on them against the next adjourned date.
Recall that Kanu had sued the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF as 1st and 2nd defendants, in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/462/2022.
Kanu, who sued the defendants over allegations bordering on violation of his rights, alleged that he was kidnapped from Kenya and brought back to Nigeria to stand trial.
