BREAKING: Nnamdi Kanu Sues National Intelligence Agency Director-General, Ahmed Abubakar Over Treatment In Kenya, Seeks N20Billion Compensation
The detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has dragged the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Rufai Abubakar over his role in the eight days of his ‘false imprisonment’ in Kenya.
Kanu filed the suit at the Abia State High Court in Umuahia.
Kanu is seeking among others N20 billion in compensation for general and exemplary damages for the violation of his rights.
Kanu’s special counsel, Alloy Ejimakor who filed the suit on Wednesday, November 23, told SaharaReporters that newly discovered evidence implicating Mr. Abubakar beyond the infamous extraordinary rendition prompted the legal action.
Of all the several suits that have emanated from the rendition of Kanu, Ejimakor said “this is the first against Ahmed Abubakar, either in his personal or official capacity.”
In the suit, a copy of which was made available , Ejimakor stated that the false imprisonment of the Claimant (Kanu) was without his consent; adding that the Kenyan government has publicly and categorically denied any role in the arrest and imprisonment of the Claimant in Kenya.
