Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, has asked an Abia State High Court to rule on his fundamental human rights complaint on January 19.

Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu's Special Counsel, revealed this in a statement posted Tuesday night.

Remember that the case was heard and decided on the merits on December 10, 2021, before Justice Benson Anya of the Abia State High Court in Umuahia.

The action, filed on Kanu's behalf by Ejimakor, asked the court to declare the military invasion of the IPOB leader in September 2017 as illegal.

The counsel requested the court in the petition to declare Kanu's re-arrest and alleged torture in Kenya unconstitutional.

The statement reads: "For the information of the media and the general public, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s Fundamental Rights suit pending before the High Court of Abia State has been set down for judgment on January 19, 2022."

It is seeking: "A DECLARATION that the military invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s home in Abia State in September 2017 by the Nigerian government is illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional and amounts to infringement of his fundamental rights to life, dignity of his person, his personal liberty and fair hearing as guaranteed under the Nigerian Constitution and the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights.

"A declaration that the arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya by agents of the Nigerian government without due process of law is arbitrary, illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional and amounts to infringement of his fundamental rights against arbitrary arrest, to his personal liberty and to fair hearing as guaranteed under the Nigerian Constitution and the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights.

"A declaration that the torture and detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya by agents of the Nigerian government is illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional and amounts to infringement of the his fundamental rights against torture and to fair hearing, as guaranteed under the Nigerian Constitution and the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights.

"A declaration that the expulsion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya to Nigeria by the Nigerian government and his consequent detention and planned prosecution in Charge No: FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015 (Federal Republic of Nigeria v. Nnamdi Kanu) is illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional and amount to infringement of his fundamental rights against unlawful expulsion and detention, and to fair hearing, as guaranteed under the Nigerian Constitution and the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights."

The court was also asked to persuade the Nigerian government to release the IPOB leader, restore his liberty, and "repatriate him to Britain, his country of abode and citizenship."

He asked the court to require the Nigerian government to send an official letter of apology to Kanu for the violation of his fundamental rights, as well as to publish the letter of apology in three major dailies.
