The judge, in a ruling on an ex parte application, granted leave to the plaintiff, Mr. Isiah Ayugu, to commence the suit naming the DSS, its Director-General, the police and the Inspector-General of Police as the defendants.

The Punch reports that the suit is seeking the arrest and prosecution of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, and Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, Tochukwu Uchendu, and Emmanuel Shallom Ben.

Abaribe, Uchendu and Ben were those who stood sureties for the bail granted the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu by the Federal High Court in Abuja in April, 2017.

Kanu jumped bail and dissapeared from the country several months back but has allegedly resurfaced in Israel.

Speaking in Owerri, Imo state capital, on Monday, October 22, Uwazuruike said that Kanu’s directive to the Igbo to boycott the 2019 elections except there is a referendum, is for his selfish gain.
