A suit has been filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja seeking the investigation and prosecution of certain individuals for allegedly aiding the escape of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, from Nigeria.

The suit was filed earlier on Wednesday by Isiah Ayugu, who described himself as a taxpaying responsible Nigerian and lawyer.

He said in the suit marked, FHC/ABJ/CS/1254/18, that due to Kanu’s escape from Nigeria, the IPOB leader’s trial on charges of treasonable felony had  stalled.

He said as a Nigerian, his image had been damaged “by the character assassination, lies, falsehood, evil propaganda made against the Nigerian Army that the Nigerian Army has abducted, arrested, kidnapped, assassinated and killed Nnamdi Kanu.”

He held that former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, and others as those responsible for the spreading of the alleged propaganda and the eventual escape of the IPOB leader from Nigeria.

Apart from Fani-Kayode, others being sought to be prosecuted include: those who stood sureties for the bail granted Kanu by the Federal High Court in Abuja in April last year – Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, Tochukwu Uchendu and Emmanuel Shallom Ben.

They also include; Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, and the IPOB leader’s relatives – Emmanuel Kanu and Uchechi Kanu.

The rest, according to the plaintiffs,  are “all those who worked together to propagate and spread the inciting lies and falsehood that Nnamdi Kanu had been abducted, arrested, kidnapped, detained, killed and assassinated by the Nigerian Army when indeed they were well aware of Nnamdi Kanu’s whereabouts because they played roles in helping Nnamdi Kanu to disappear from Nigeria.”
