The Federal Government (FG) tried to transfer the case concerning Nnamdi Kanu’s extraordinary rendition from Umuahia to Abuja on Wednesday, but it was unsuccessful.

The Federal High Court contended that it had the power to hear the matter in Umuahia, Abia State, and make a ruling.

This information was provided in a tweet by Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu’s Special Counsel, who also reiterated that the case was still ongoing.

He wrote: “Breaking: Federal High Court, Umuahia denies the Federal Government’s application to transfer the ‘extraordinary rendition’ suit to Abuja, and rules that Umuahia has the jurisdiction to hear and determine the suit”. Reading of the rest of the judgment continues.”

The kidnapping of Kanu and his unusual rendition from Kenya were disputed by the Special Counsel.

He is requesting, among other things, that the court order his return to either Kenya, where he was kidnapped, or the UK, where he is presently residing.
