Desist from calling IPOB a terrorist group or face legal action – Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyers warn..READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶

The legal team representing Nnamdi Kanu, the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has issued a warning to Nigerians to stop referring to IPOB as a terrorist organization.

In a notice dated June 7, 2024, addressed to the media, the general public, and government agencies, the team led by Aloy Ejimakor, Esq, stated that any individual, media house or government agency that continues to label IPOB as a terrorist group will be taken to court.

The statement highlighted that there is no evidence to support the claim that IPOB has engaged in any terrorist activities.

The statement read in part: “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s Legal Team is under firm instructions from our client to issue this final warning to all persons and institutions still referring to IPOB as a terrorist organisation.

“Henceforth, any further reference to IPOB as a terrorist organization will be met and countervailed with a muscular litigation and other lawful measures, regardless of who the entity is. This is because there is a subsisting Judgment of a competent High Court in Nigeria (attached herewith) which ruled that IPOB’s proscription/declaration as a terrorist group by Buhari is illegal, discriminatory and unconstitutional.

“Compliance with this judgment strictly demands that IPOB should no longer be referred to as a terrorist organization.

“Additionally, those calling IPOB a terrorist organization have not adduced a scintilla of evidence that IPOB has ever engaged in any terrorist activity. This is underscored by the verifiable fact that since the so-called proscription of IPOB in 2017, no single alleged IPOB member has been convicted of any terrorist act, despite thousands of arrests, abductions, horrendous torture, false flags and extrajudicial killings levied against its alleged members.

“Accordingly, we hereby demand that the general public, Presidency, Nigerian Army, Nigerian Police and any erring media houses should forthwith cease and desist from attaching such defamatory and prejudicial label to IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
