During the invasion, a sporadic shooting by the operatives of the Nigerian military led to the killing of many including some pets in the IPOB leader's residence at the time.
In his suit, Kanu asked the court to order the Army, FG and other respondents to pay N5 billion as damages and compensation to him and also make a public apology in national dailies over the invasion.
Court rules in favour of the IPOB leader
In his judgement on Wednesday, January 19, Justice Benson Anya, who presided over the matter at the High Court in Umuahia, Abia state ordered the Nigerian Army and the respondents to apologise to Kanu for the infringement of his fundamental human rights.
The court also awarded N1 billion in favour of Kanu.
However, in his prayer on the microblogging site, Sani prayed that no appeal against Justice Anya's judgement would succeed.
Sani appealed to Kanu to remember some of his supporters and fans like him who have never reduced to insulting him (Kanu) should the FG and the Army finally remit the said money into his account.
