The ECOWAS Court of Justice has dismissed a suit filed by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, over allegations of torture, assault, inhuman treatment and the violation of his property rights by the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The IPOB leader demanded $800 million in compensation from the federal government.

Justice Dupe Atoki, leading a three-man panel, while delivering judgement held that Kanu had failed to prove the claims and dismissed the request for compensation.
