Will The Ban On IPOB Be Lifted?
The proscribed Indigenous People People of Biafra on Monday justified its agitation for Igbo’s self-determination.
It maintained in a paper it filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday that the Federal Government fraudulently obtained the order proscribing it and designating it as a terrorist group.
The group stated that contrary to the Federal Government’s contention painting it as a violent organisation, it was a non-violent group operating within the confines of domestic and international laws in agitating for self-determination for the people of Igbo extraction.
The Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Abdu Kafarati, who made the proscription order on September 21, 2017, will on Tuesday, November, 14, hear IPOB’s motion challenging the court order.
The group stated that it had never killed any person contrary to the Federal Government’s allegation.
It stated that the huge crowds its rallies often drew had never been shown to carry weapons.
It also added that the Federal Government had grossly misinterpreted its activities as amounting to the intimidation of the whole nation.FOR MORE FRESH STORIES, DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
