An Enugu High Court has ordered the Southeast governors to pay Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, N8 billion as compensation.
Justice A.O. Onovo ruled that the sum was compensation for infringing on Kanu’s fundamental human rights.
The judge gave the order while passing judgement on Kanu’s appeal against IPOB’s proscription.
Kanu, through his Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, had dragged the Southeast governors and the Federal Government before the Enugu High Court over IPOB’s proscription and violation of his fundamental rights in 2017.
The presiding judge ordered the Southeast governor to apologize to Kanu and publish their apology in three national dailies.
This was disclosed in a statement by Ejimakor tagged: ‘Mazi Nnamdi Kanu/IPOB wins landmark victory against proscription of IPOB’.
