The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has sued the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Abubakar, over his illegal detention.

In a suit filed by the special counsel to the IPOB leader, Alloy Ejimakor, Kanu dragged Abubakar to court for imprisoning him in Kenya for eight days, before his extradition to Nigeria.

In a post via his Twitter handle on Thursday morning, Ejimakor said the suit was prompted by new evidence gathered implicating the NIA DG beyond the infamous extraordinary rendition.

In the suit, the IPOB leader asked the court to direct Abubakar to pay him N20bn as compensation.

Ejimakor said, “Yesterday (Wednesday) I filed a suit against Ahmed Abubakar, the DG of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) for his eight days ‘false imprisonment’ of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in discovered evidence that implicated the DG/NIA beyond the infamous extraordinary rendition.”

According to the suit, the court gave Abubakar 14 days to appear or be represented in court, adding that failure to show up would mean that judgment would be given in the DG’s absence.

The suit filed in the High Court of Abia State reads in part, “You are hereby commanded that within 14 days after the service of this Writ on you inclusive of the day of such service, you do cause an appearance to be entered for you in the Umuahia Judicial Division of the High Court in Abia State in an action at this suit of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu….and take notice that in default of your so doing, the claimant may proceed therein and judgment may be given in your absence.

“The claimant’s claim is for (i) A declaration of this Honourable Court that the defendant’s arrest of the claimant and his imprisonment of the claimant at the said location in Nairobi, Kenya amounted to false arrest and false imprisonment.

“(ii) A declaration that the defendant acted in bad faith and/or abused his public office in falsely imprisoning the claimant at the said location in Kenya. (iii) An order of this Honourable Court directing the defendant to pay the claimant the sum of N20,000,000,000.00 (Twenty Billion Naira only) being general and exemplary damages…”

This comes just a few days after Kanu’s N20bn suit against the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami was thrown was thrown out by the Federal High Court in Abuja.
