Anambra poll: Court orders service of processes on Kanu, IPOB

A Federal High Court in Abuja has directed that processes (court documents) be served on Nnamdi Kanu and his group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in relation to a suit seeking to restrain them from disrupting the forthcoming Anambra State governorship election.

Justice Babatunde Quadri gave the order for service of processes on the respondents after listening to arguments by plaintiff’s lawyer, Smart Iheazor, for leave to serve the processes on Kanu and IPOB outside Abuja.

Other respondents in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/756/2017 are the Inspector General of Police (IGP), the Commandant General of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).

The plaintiff, Dr. Richard Ndubuaku, who described himself as businessman based in Awka, with properties in Onitsha and other parts of Anambra State, wants the court to restrain Kanu, IPOB, their agents and members from making utterances or taking actions inimical to the conduct of the election slated for November 18 this year.

He also wants the court to restrain Kanu and IPOB from further harassing or intimidating eligible voters in Anambra State.
