The ECOWAS Court has adjourned the case involving the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and the Federal Government.
The self-acclaimed IPOB leader had filed a suit requesting $800,000 as compensation from the government for allegedly infriging on his human rights.
At the resumed sitting of the case on Tuesday, the Federal Government filed a motion seeking to quash the suit.
The counsel to Nnamdi Kanu informed the ECOWAS Court that the motion was filed as a deliberate attempt to frustrate the trial, because the government had more than one month to file the motion, but failed to do so.
When he insisted on replying to the motion on points of law, the Court tubed it down, noting that they do not have the said motion and that it cannot be replied on points of law.
The hearing of the suit was subsequently adjourned till February 8, 2018.
