Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday, confirmed that the Federal High Court at Umuahia, Abia State capital, will, on Tuesday, October 4, 2022, hear the extraordinary rendition suit he filed before the court in March this year on behalf of Kanu.

He told The Guardian that the suit, which he described as sui generis (of special class), “is primarily aimed at redressing the unlawful expulsion or extraordinary rendition of Kanu, which is a violation of his fundamental rights under Article 12(4) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, as well as Chapter IV of the Nigerian Constitution.”

He said that Kanu, in the suit, is asking the court to redress myriad of violations that came with his rendition, such as torture, unlawful detention and denial of the right to fair hearing as required by law before anybody can be expelled from one country to the other.
