28 October 2021. Daily Post, Nigeria: The High Court sitting in Abia State has set a date for the suit by pro-Biafra agitator, Nnamdi Kanu challenging his rearrest and rendition by the Nigerian government.

The court set 2nd November 2021 for hearing of the pending suit.

Kanu’s Special Counsel, Aloy Ejimakor, disclosed this in a statement he signed and issued on Thursday.

Ejimakor disclosed that the Nigerian government is expected to move their extant application for extension of time to file their defense to the suit.

The statement reads: “For the information of the general public, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s Fundamental Rights suit pending before the High Court of Abia State has been assigned and set down for hearing on 2nd November, 2021.

“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.

“Fundamental Rights suits are intended to be concluded quickly, especially in situations such as this where my Client, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (the Applicant) is currently incarcerated.”
