“I Am Still Entitled To $800m Compensation” – Nnamdi Kanu Claims
The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra , Nnamdi Kanu , has said that despite being granted bail by the Federal High Court in Abuja where he is being prosecuted alongside others on charges of treasonable felony , he is still entitled to the $ 800 m compensation for his alleged unlawful arrest and detention in 2015.
But Kanu , through his lawyer , Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor , objected to the Federal Government ’ s motion contending that granting bail to the IPOB leader was just a partial satisfaction of prayers sought in the suit .
He maintained that the ECOWAS Court had the power to grant his client the $ 800 m compensation sought since the IPOB leader’ s rights had been violated .
Ejiofor stated in his written address , “We submit therefore that the court has powers to order for payment of compensatory damages when found that the plaintiff ’ s right has been violated . ”
