TVC Nigeria

The Federal High Court in Abuja has given judicial backing to the executive order by President Muhammadu Buhari, outlawing the Indigenous People of Biafra, and its activities.

The Acting Chief Judge, Justice Abdu Kafarati, granted the order proscribing the group.

The court declared that the activities of IPOB in Nigeria, particularly in the South-East or South-South regions, constitute an act of terrorism.

The judge did not sit in open court to deliver the ruling, choosing to hear and grant the ex parte motion filed by Attorney-General, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami in his chambers.
