A Federal High Court in Abuja, on Wednesday, declared the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)as “acts of terrorism”.
This followed an application filed by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
Malami had asked the court to proscribe the group.
Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the legal process for the proscription of the group.
According to the State House correspondents in Abuja, Mohammed explained that the procedure for proscription was that “the president must sign the proclamation after which the attorney-general will follow the procedure which he is doing”.
“For those who are fixated with legality, I have good news for them: President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the process of proscribing IPOB, and the procedure is on as I speak,” he added.
