BREAKING: IPOB Is Not a Terrorist Organisation – Kanu Insists, Obtains Court Order

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has called on the public, organisations, media houses, and the government to cease referring to IPOB as a terrorist organisation.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Kanu issued the warning through his legal team on Friday.

In a statement signed by Aloy Ejimakor, Esq., the team warned that any further reference to IPOB as a terrorist organisation would be met with legal action.

This follows a court judgment declaring IPOB’s proscription as a terrorist group by President Buhari as illegal, discriminatory, and unconstitutional.

The team which has obtained a court order has threatened to sue anyone found culpable of disobedience to the order.

“Henceforth, any further reference to IPOB as a terrorist organization will be met and countervailed with a muscular litigation and other lawful measures, regardless of who the entity is,” the group said.

The group demanded that the “general public, Presidency, Nigerian Army, Nigerian Police and any erring media houses”, should forthwith cease from attaching such defamatory and prejudicial label to IPOB.
