A Federal High Court in Abuja ruled that the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) amount to “acts of terrorism”
Nigeria’s Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami had filed an application to the court, asking it to proscribe the group.
Before then, Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed had said that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the legal process for the proscription of the group. He 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
