Written by News Room on February 1, 2022
An Ikeja High Court has ordered the Nigerian Navy to pay the entitlements of a former Military Administrator of Lagos and Imo, the late Rear Adm. Ndubuisi Kanu, to a dedicated interest-yielding account.
Justice Christopher Balogun gave the order in an ongoing suit filed by one of the spouses of the deceased, Mrs Gladys Kanu, seeking that the Nigerian Navy should calculate the entitlements of the late Kanu and pay them on Monday in Lagos.
In the suit marked LD/3685FPM/2021, Gladys is also seeking to be declared as the sole widow of the former military administrator.
Gladys said that she was married to Kanu for 27 years but was in a relationship with him for 31 years.
The case has been adjourned until Feb. 7 for continuation of hearing.
