The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s authorities for not respecting court docket orders that dominated in its favour that, “IPOB is not an unlawful organisation.”
The group reiterated that Justice Binta Nyako on March 2, 2017, had dominated that it shouldn’t be labelled as an outlawed group, due to this fact criticising the Nigerian authorities for remaining in impunity.
It, nevertheless, expressed confidence that the group would quickly get justice on the International Criminal Court the place it had dragged the Buhari-led authorities to, whereas urging its members to stay calm on the brink of freedom.
The group made these recognized in a press release by the Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, obtained by SaharaReporters on Tuesday.
The assertion learn, “Notwithstanding the malicious propaganda and blackmail from agents of darkness, IPOB is not only a peaceful movement but a lawful organisation as well. Nigeria has a history of impunity when it comes to adherence to court orders and judgments issued by courts of competent jurisdiction, so we are not surprised that the Nigeria establishment in collaboration with purveyors of falsehood have continued to thread the same part of shamelessly dishing out lies and propaganda against us despite a ruling by her own court that IPOB is not unlawful.
“History they say is the best teacher and we, therefore, want to remind our oppressors that a Federal High Court, in Abuja, presided over by Justice Binta Nyako, had on March 2, 2017, ruled that “IPOB is not an unlawful organization.” The court docket which struck out six of the 11-count felony cost the Federal Government most popular in opposition to our chief, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and three different pro-Biafra agitators, declared that IPOB was not illegal.
“In the landmark ruling, the court said that the fact that IPOB was not an organisation registered in Nigeria did not make it an illegal society. In her words, the Honourable Justice ruled thus, “It may be true that IPOB is not registered in Nigeria, but does that make it an illegal organisation?” the decide queried.
“Justice Nyako held that the Federal Government failed to prove that IPOB, allegedly managed by Kanu and his co-defendants — Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu and David Nwawuisi, is an unlawful society. So, if the federal government could not prove that IPOB is a terrorist organisation before its own court, is it then before the ICC (International Criminal Court) that it can prove the contrary?
“The Nigeria Government already knows that we are prepared for it at the International Criminal Court, ICC. Just very soon we shall meet there! The whole world is also aware of all the atrocities of the Nigeria Government through the instrumentality of its terrorist security agencies against the innocent and non-violent people of Biafra. Very soon we shall get the justice that we have been asking for. Biafra shall be actualised in our lifetime.”
