IPOB: Only courts can pronounce a group terrorist organisation

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said yesterday that its declaration as a terrorist organisation by the Defence Headquarters was a clear breach of the Terrorism (Prevention) Act of 2011.

The DHQ, on Friday, pronounced IPOB a ‘militant terrorist organisation’ in Nigeria for allegedly “clandestinely and actively terrorizing the general public.”

Major-General John Enenche, Director, Defence Information (DDI), listed IPOB’s acts of terrorism as: the formation of a Biafra Secret Service, claimed formation of Biafra National Guard, unauthorized blocking of public access roads and extortion of money from innocent civilians at illegal road blocks.
