Abuja court declares IPOB's activities as “acts of terrorism and illegality”

The Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday granted an order declaring the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as “acts of terrorism and illegality.”

According to Vanguard, order which was filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, also proscribed the existence of IPOB throughout Nigeria, with particular attention paid to the South-East and South-South regions.

The approval of the AGF’s motion came after the Nigerian military backtracked and insisted that it had not declared IPOB a terrorist organization.

The court documents are dated 20th September 2017, with suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/871/2017 and bear the seal of the Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court Abuja, A. Abdu Kafarati.

IPOB is not registered as an organisation in Nigeria but was cited as a sole respondent in the order. 

The last of the four orders on the document granted the order “restraining any person or group of persons from participating in any manner whatsoever in any form of activities involving or concerning the prosecution of the collective intention or otherwise of the respondent (Indigenous People of Biafra) under any other name or platform however called or described.
