IPOB Proscription: Nnamdi Kanu challenges Nigerian government from hiding


Leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu still has some fight in him after ordering his lawyer to file a motion challenging the proscription of his group, IPOB by the Federal government. In a statement of Friday, Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor revealed that the motion challenging the proscription has been filed and according to the motion, dated September 21st, Ejiofor argued that IPOB was a non-violent organisation; therefore the decision of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to issue an order, based on a motion made ex-parte, was illegal.
Ejiofor added that his client, whose whereabouts has been unknown since the violent crisis in Abia started two weeks ago, was not allowed fair hearing and that the court lacked the jurisdiction to grant such an order.
The Nigerian government on Wednesday obtained an order of court, affirming the declaration of IPOB as a terror group.The pro-secession group has been accused of attacking and killing innocent civilians.
