BREAKING: COURT ORDERS SECURITY AGENTS TO PAY NNAMDI KANU’S LAWYER N100M

The Federal High Court Sitting in Awka, Anambra State on Friday awarded N100 million as compensation against the police, the Department of State Services (DSS), the Nigerian Army and four others for violating the rights of Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lead counsel for the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, when they invaded his home last year.

It was gathered that the Nigerian security operatives had carried out a raid on Ejiofor’s home at Oraifite in Anambra State, on June 6, 2021.

During the raid, one of Ejiofor’s aides, Samuel Okoro, was allegedly killed and his body set ablaze inside the lawyer’s car.
