Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, Special Counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), has emphasized the importance of his client’s case being heard as soon as possible before the High Court of Abia State.
Barrister Ejimakor noted that Nnamdi Kanu’s basic rights action pending before the High Court of Abia State had been assigned and put down for hearing on November 2, 2021, in a statement made accessible to newsmen over the weekend.
Ejimakor said: “On this date, the Nigerian government and its Attorney-General will be expected to move their extant application for extension of time to file their defense to the suit and my opposition to the application.
“It is my intention to, on the spot, move for a ruling on their application for extension of time, so that the case can proceed quickly to the next level, which is expected to be a definitive hearing on the substantive matter.”
Ejimakor stressed that fundamental rights suits were intended to be concluded quickly, especially in situations such as the one in which his client, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (the applicant) had been currently incarcerated.
