The Federal High Court in Abuja has granted a request made by one Richard Ndubuaku seeking to serve court processes on Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) through substituted service.
Justice B.O. Quadri-led court gave the order on Tuesday following Ndubuaku’s ex-parte application on the defendants.
Ndubuaku, who made the application through his counsel, Smart Iheazor, also asked the court to make an order restraining Kanu and his group from disrupting Nov. 8 Governorship election in Anambra.
The judge, however, only granted the order of substituted service on Kanu and IPOB, and refused all the other prayers of the applicant.
Giving a reason for refusing other application, the judge said the Federal Government had the capacity to ensure that elections held in Anambra state.
Before adjoining the matter to October 10, the judge ordered that other respondents in the matter, namely: the Inspector-General of Police, the Commandant General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Attorney-General of the Federation be served personally.topics from
