A Federal High Court, Abuja, yesterday, adjourned a fresh N1 billion suit filed by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), against the federal government till March 4, 2024 for hearing.

In the originating motion dated and filed December 4, the applicant sued the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN), attorney-general of the federation (AGF), the Department of State Services (DSS) and its director-general as 1st to 4th respondents respectively.

The suit was filed pursuant to Order II, Rules 1 & 2 of the Fundamental Rights Enforcement Procedure Rules 2009, among others.

In the motion, the detained IPOB leader prayed for eight reliefs.

Justice Omotosho, who adjourned the matter until March 4 for hearing, ordered that a hearing notice be issued and served on the applicant.
