Hi, what are you looking for?



The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has again, filed a ₦‎20 billion suit against the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami over alleged defamation.

In a notice signed by Kanu’s lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, it was stated that the AGF defamed the IPOB leader when he claimed that the latter jumped bail, and had asked for N20bn for damages.

In the first suit filed in September, Kanu had sought a declaration that his arrest and imprisonment at a location in Kenya and the subsequent imprisonment in the aircraft that conveyed him from Kenya to Nigeria amounted to false arrest and false imprisonment.

This was eventually discounted by the Court barely four days ago.

However, in the latest suit dated November 21, Kanu demanded compensation following alleged defamatory and libelous claims against him.

The suit was contained in a letter sent to Malami titled, “RE: Pre-action notice and formal demand for settlement of the claim of defamation/libel of the character of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu grounded on your false, defamatory and libelous publications that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu jumped bail.”

Ejimakor wrote in the letter, “In view of the said judgment of the Abia State High Court, your above utterances were false, malicious and reckless and they were read and heard worldwide and portrayed our Client in light.”

Alongside the sum of ₦‎20 billion, Kanu demanded an unreserved personal letter of apology, to be prominently and boldly published full-page in two Nigerian Newspapers of national circulation, namely: Guardian Newspaper and Sun Newspaper.
