Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB And Their Crazy Sit-At-Home Order

There is more trouble for Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), after the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday gave a judicial backing to the executive order of President Muhammadu Buhari, outlawing the group and its activities.

The Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Abdu Kafarati, granted the order proscribing the group earlier today.

It is understood that the order filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, declared the activities of the IPOB as “acts of terrorism and illegality.”

The order also proscribed the existence of IPOB throughout Nigeria, with particular attention paid to the South-East and South-South regions.

Last Friday, the defence headquarters (DHQ) declared IPOB a “militant terrorist” organisation. South-east governors subsequently issued a statement, proscribing the group.

However, the military has come under severe criticism for the declaration. Though Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff, said the DHQ only made a pronouncement and not a declaration on the group.

On Monday, the Senate President Bukola Saraki also described the action of the military and the governors as unconstitutional.
