A Federal High Court in Abuja, has declared the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) “acts of terrorism”.
This followed an application filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami
– – – – – – – – –
“What was it about the listed sins of IPOB – formation of a so-called “secret service” which is comprised of some worn old men and unemployed youths; blocking of public access roads and extortion of money from people; confrontation of state officials with weapons such as stones, broken bottles and even Molotov cocktails — that warranted such a huge leap in agenda? If Biafrans who “fight” with stones, machetes, and broken bottles are qualified to be called terrorists, then how do we characterise Boko Haram group who carry out suicide bombing? If the Biafran protesters are terrorists, then, what do we call the Fulani herdsmen who were declared the fourth deadliest group in the world, coming after Boko Haram, ISIS, and Al-Shabab by the Global Terrorism Index?” –
“The Attorney-General of the Federation cannot competently sue IPOB as a defendant in any court of law, the same being an entity unknown to law.
“The court cannot make an order against a non-existing entity such as IPOB. Such order, if and when made, is at large and unenforceable – = = –
I verily believe that the federal government should follow the noble advice that General Muhammadu Buhari gave to the United Nations (on North Korea), to adopt dialogue in the resolution of the agitations coming from the South-east,”
Seems like some amoral morons are occupying the seat of the Nigerian government.
