The Nigerian government has followed the legal process by getting a court order to legalize the declaration of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, a terrorist organization.
The order filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, was granted by the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday.
Justice Abdu Kafarati granted the order proscribing the group.
He declared that the activities of IPOB in Nigeria, particularly in the South-East or South-South regions, henceforth, constituted “an act of terrorism.”
The Defence Headquarters had on Friday announced the declaration of the group as a terrorist organization after its members clashed repeatedly with soldiers in Abia State following the launch of Operation Python Dance II in the South-East.
