RE: Courtroom to listen to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s extraordinary rendition case on 4th October

On 4th October 2022, the Federal Excessive Courtroom, Umuahia will hear Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s extraordinary rendition swimsuit which I had filed earlier than the courtroom in March this 12 months.

The Swimsuit is sui generis (of a particular class) and it’s primarily aimed toward redressing the notorious illegal expulsion or extraordinary rendition of Nnamdi Kanu, which is a transparent violation of his elementary rights below Article 12(4) of the African Constitution on Human and Peoples Rights, in addition to Chapter IV of the Nigerian Structure.

Along with the rendition, I’m asking the Courtroom to redress the myriad violations that got here with the rendition, such because the torture, the illegal detention and the denial of the appropriate to truthful listening to which is required by legislation earlier than anyone will be expelled from one nation to the opposite.
