Heavily armed combined security personnel early this morning barricaded all the routes leading to the premise of the Abia State High Court located at Ikot Ekpene Road Umuahia, as the suit filed by the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB comes up for hearing today.
Human and vehicular movements around the area have been stressful as traffic is being diverted by the stern-looking but non hostile security personnel.
Kanu had through his special counsel, Mr. Aloy Ejimakor, sued the Federal Government of Nigeria for his “extra-ordinary rendition from Kenya”.
He demands among other things that he be returned to Kenya where he was “abuducted”, and then to Britain where he resides; and paid N5 billion for the gross violation of his fundamental rights.
The presiding Judge, Hon. Justice K. C. J Okereke, had during the first hearing, granted Kanu leave to serve by substituted means, an application for enforcement of his Fundamental Rights.
The matter was then adjurned till today for hearing.
