The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has again won a major victory against the federal government

The ECOWAS court, sitting in Abuja, has  dismissed the application filed by the  government asking that the suit filed by Kanu be quashed.

Kanu’s suit seeks the court to grant him an unconditional release from detention as well as damages to the tune of $800 million.

The Federal Government had asked the court to dismiss the case because it was a subject matter before the Federal High Court and the appeal court.

The government said as a result, Kanu’s application constitutes an abuse of court process.

The presiding judge, Micah Wright-Williams, dismissed the application for lacking in merit.

The court said it has the jurisdiction to hear cases of infringement of human rights.
