The Nigerian Government on Wednesday lost its bid to transfer the suit of the extraordinary rendition of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, from Umuahia to Abuja.

The Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia State, insisted that it has the jurisdiction to hear and determine the suit.

The court presided over by Justice Evelyn Anyadike awarded N500 million cost against the federal government.

He wrote: “Breaking: Federal High Court, Umuahia denies the Federal Government’s application to transfer the ‘extraordinary rendition’ suit to Abuja, and rules that Umuahia has the jurisdiction to hear and determine the suit”. Reading of the rest of the judgment continues.”

The Special Counsel was challenging Kanu’s abduction and extraordinary rendition from Kenya.

He is, among other things, praying for the court to order his return to Kenya, where he was abducted, or UK, his country of abode.
