Justice Abdul Kafarati Refuses to Nullify the Terrorist Tag on IPOB


Abuja Federal High Court on the 18th of January 2018 has refused to grant application filed by the Indigenous People of Biafra seeking the nullification of the proscription order made against IPOB on September 20 by the Muhammadu Buhari government.

The Indigenous Poeople of Biafra had approached the court after it made an order proscribing the Indiginious People of Biafra as a terror organization last September.

Barrister Ejiofor , IPOB lawyer, had sued for a violation of IPOB fundamental rights to fair hearing and freedom of assembly by the Muhammadu Buhari APC led government motion brought exparte.
Justice Adbul Kafarati said the basic instrument in the particular ex parte motion was the approval of the Nigerian president which was stated to have been given in the application brought by the Attorney General of the Federation.

Consequently, the court said it was of the view that: “The application brought by the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation ex-parte was properly brought”.
He added that the right of the IPOB members were not abused as alleged by Barister Ejiofor and ordered N500,000 as damages to be paid by the applicant.
