IPOB Must Be Recognized As A Terrorist Organization – FG Begs U.S , U.K

We’ve Notified World Governments

  In a what seems to be a desperate new move, the ​Nigerian Government has formally notified world governments including that of the United States, United Kingdom, UK, France and other foreign countries of its decision to declare the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, as a terrorist organisation.

An Abuja Federal High Court in Abuja had, on August 20, proscribed IPOB, following a motion filed by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN).

The US and UK had initially faulted the declaration, insisting that the group was not a terrorist organisation.

Justice MalamiOn Wednesday, Malami said some foreign countries have been duly notified and would be seeking a Mutual Legal Assistance from the foreign governments to stop the funding of the group and deal with IPOB members as terrorists.

Furthermore, he said the government had informed all foreign missions operating in Nigeria through its Central Authority Unit.

According to Malami, “Just think of any embassy you know is operating in Nigeria, they have all been served.”

“All we did was to send copies of the gazettes attached to the cover letters to notify them of the status of IPOB as far as Nigeria is concerned.”

“Although the proscription widely reported in newspapers, has been published in the Federal Government’s gazette and advertised in newspapers as ordered by the court, we had to formalize it by notifying our foreign friends, I mean the foreign governments, which have embassies in Nigeria; and that was exactly what we did by sending copies of the gazette to them.”
