The suit by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), has been dismissed by the Economic Community of West African State, ECOWAS, Court of Justice sitting in Abuja.
Kanu had dragged the Nigerian Government to court following the alleged assault and subjection of inhuman treatment by the security opretuves in 2015.
However, ECOWAS regional court yesterday held that Kanu failed to prove his allegations against the Federal Government.
In a judgment read by Justice Dupe Atoki on Wednesday, the court said Kanu had no reason to conclude that his arrest and detention were unlawful and arbitrary as claimed.
The three member panel of the Court also dismissed Kanu’s request for monetary compensation.
