Kanu’s suit seeks the court to grant him an unconditional release from detention as well as damages to the tune of $800 million.

Channels Television reports that the federal government asked the court to dismiss the case because it is a subject matter before the Federal High Court and the appeal court.The government said as a result,Kanu’s application constitutes an abuse of court process.

The presiding judge, Micah Wright-Williams, dismissed the application of the government for lacking in merit.

The court said it has the jurisdiction to hear cases of infringement of human rights.
