Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer of the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has filed a lawsuit against the Nigerian police over an alleged invasion of his house and alleged killing of four occupants by operatives of the force.
Ejiofor who filed the lawsuit through his lawyer Maxwell Okpara, demanded N2bn as compensation for burning of his house and alleged shooting of his aged mother by the police at his home town in Anambra State on December 2.
Channels Television reported that Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer also asked the court to stop the police from further harassing, intimidating, threatening his life and destroying his properties.
He asked the court to compel the police to retract a public notice issued on December 3, which declared him wanted. Ejiofor demanded for an apology from the Nigerian police which will be published in five major newspapers.
