Court Affirm Proscription of IPOB
Justice Kafarati squashed the contention of IPOB’s lawyer, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, that the group is not registered in Nigeria and could not be sued in Nigeria.
According to report, the Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High, Justice Abdu Kafarati, resolved all the three issues tendered before the court against the proscribed group.
The judge also held that the issuance of the proscription order by him in chambers following an ex parte application was in accordance with the provisions of the Terrorism Prevention Act.
Justice Kafarati likened IPOB to a foreign who could be arrested when he commits a crime in another country.
The judge awarded the sum of N500 as cost against IPOB.
