The Nigerian government has been dragged before the African Union (AU) by the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) over the arrest of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The group filed a complaint before the African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights (ACHPR), a judicial body of the AU tasked with promoting and protecting human rights and collective rights throughout the African continent.
The complaint was filed by IPOB through its lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor.
Ejimakor said the group is urging the federal government to respect the treaty of ‘Extraordinary rendition.’
The lawyer in a tweet on Thursday evening stated: “In addition to the various legal, diplomatic & political battles for His Excellency, I’ve today filed a Complaint with the African Union’s ACHPR, asking it to hold Nigeria to its treaty obligations against Extraordinary Rendition.”
“The trial within trial has started.”
