Politics What Senators Told Abaribe About Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB Yesterday

Courts remands 60 IPOB Members as FG Gazettes its Proscription

The court of law has been approached to order Army boss, Buratai to produce Nnmadi Kanu who is nowhere to be found since his house was invaded by troops.

Nigeria's Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has rejected claims that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is being held by the Nigerian Government.

Kanu was detained for over a year and half on charges of treason and was only released on strict bail conditions in April this year.

It also accused the Nigerian Army of acting under express command purportedly handed down by Buratai, and violently invaded the applicant's home in Afara Ukwu Ibeku in Umuahia, the Abia State's capital.

Dan-Ali made this remark when he visited the Permanent Representative of Nigeria to the United Nations, in NY, the United States of America, Prof Tijjani Bande. "I don't think he's under an obligation to tell anyone".

Recall also that barely 24 hours after the Nigerian army pronounced IPOB a terrorist organisation, the President of the Nigerian 8th Senate, Dr. Saraki condemned the categorisation of IPOB as a terrorist organisation, saying it was unconstitutional.

The Federal Government has in its Gazette published the proscription of the secessionist group Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and declared it a terrorist organization. Human rights groups have reported that the army's highhandedness has led to death of scores of IPOB members. IPOB is described as a separatist group wanting to breakaway from Africa's most populous nation.

Last week, Ejiofor filed a suit at the court asking it to vacate its order proscribing the group.

The United States (U.S.) this weekend said blacklisted-pro-Biafra group is not a terrorist organization as stated by the federal government of Nigeria.
