Through lawyer John Khaminwa, more than 33 former students filed a case seeking compensation over claims that their rights were violated during the attack.

In the suit, the students also want Chief Justice David Maraga, to appoint a bench of more than three judges to listen to the case. 

Among the things the students want provided include; terror attack reports from Independent Policing and Oversight Authority (IPOA), and Commission on Administrative Justice. 

“The State should never withhold information concerning violations of human rights,” reads court papers filed on Wednesday as quoted by Citizen Digital

The students condemned government rescue units for their delayed response during the terror attack, and want to know the time and reason why the elite RECCE squad arrived at the university late. 

The attack left 148 people dead, with several others nursing injuries.

Following the attack, the university was temporarily closed with students being transferred to other institutions.

It was later opened, and security beefed around the university premises.
