The Federal High Court’s Abuja division has dismissed a lawsuit that Nnamdi Kanu had brought against Abubakar Malami, the AGF, and others.
Aloy Ejimakor, Kanu’s special attorney, revealed this on Thursday in a tweet.
Kanu’s arrest in Kenya was challenged in the lawsuit, which was heard by Justice Inyang Ekwo.
Ejimakor informed Nairametrics that the lawsuit was dropped due to strategic considerations that it would be improper and unprofessional to openly reveal.

Recall that Kanu filed the lawsuit through Ejimakor on September 23. Among other things, he asked the court to issue an order ordering the defendants to pay him N20 billion in general and exemplary damages.
The director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Rufai Abubakar, is the second defendant in the case, with the AGF serving as the first.
The matter’s hearing was scheduled for Friday, November 18, according to Justice Inyang Ekwo. However, Kanu’s attorney declared today that the case has been dropped.
