Kano Elders Has Asked Court To Hasten SouthEast’s Exit From Nigeria
A Federal High Court in Abuja has been asked to compel the Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives to speed up the exit of the South-Eastern region out of Nigeria before closing an ongoing revision to the country’s constitution.
The request for a court order to compel the hastening of the South East exit from Nigeria formed one of the three prayers sought in a suit by a group of elders and politicians from #KanoState.
In their suit, they averred in a supporting affidavit that their action was informed by the need to stem the tide of violence and destruction being allegedly occasioned by the agitation for secession, championed by the #NnamdiKanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (#IPOB).
