The ECOWAS court sitting in Abuja, has reportedly dismissed the application filed by the federal government asking that the suit filed by the Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) be quashed.
This is reported to have caused jubilation among members of IPOB and those sympathetic to his plight.
Channels Television reports that the federal government asked the court to dismiss the case because it is a subject matter before the Federal High Court and the appeal court.
The government said as a result,Kanu’s application constitutes an abuse of court process.
The court said it has the jurisdiction to hear cases of infringement of human rights.
The presiding judge, Micah Wright-Williams, dismissed the application of the government for lacking in merit
