UPDATE: Nnamdi Kanu Files N20bn Defamation Suit Against Malami

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, has sued the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, for allegedly defamatory publishing.

Kanu, through his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, claimed that the AGF defamed the IPOB leader when he claimed the latter jumped bail and sought N20 billion in damages.

Ejimakor, who uploaded copies of the complaint on his Twitter page Wednesday, stated that Malami’s defamatory posting was detrimental to Kanu’s ongoing legal proceedings.

The lawyer tweeted:“Last week, I filed a suit against AGF Malami to stop him from making any further defamatory publication that Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kalu jumped bail. Such publication is highly prejudicial and injurious to MNK’s other cases pending in various courts. It has to stop!”


In the suit, dated January 13, Kanu demanded compensation following alleged defamatory and libelous claims against him.

The claimant (Kanu) in the suit demanded, “a declaration of this Honorable Court that, given the said Judgment of Abia State High Court, the Defendant’s published statements or utterances to the effect that Claimant jumped bail, as published in the said Vanguard newspaper publication, are libelous and defamatory;
