Court proscribes IPOB, declares it terrorist group

A Federal High Court in Abuja, has declared the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) “acts of terrorism”.

This followed an application filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.

Malami had asked the court to proscribe the group.

Earlier on Wednesday, Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the legal process for the proscription of the group.

Speaking with State House correspondents in Abuja on Wednesday, Mohammed explained that the procedure for proscription was that “the president must sign the proclamation after which the attorney-general will follow the procedure which he is doing”.

“For those who are fixated with legality, I have good news for them: President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the process of proscribing IPOB, and the procedure is on as I speak,” he said.​

    I must show my thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from this particular instance. Right after surfing throughout the internet and obtaining thoughts which are not powerful, I believed my life was gone. Existing minus the answers to the issues you’ve solved all through your posting is a serious case, as well as ones that could have badly damaged my entire career if I had not encountered your web page. Your main know-how and kindness in playing with everything was very useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a thing like this. I can at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for your professional and effective help. I will not be reluctant to suggest the website to anyone who should receive counselling on this problem.
