This is a worring consign to all Igbo’s as Nigeria is willing to fight death using the judiciary to tag IPOB a terrorist organisation.
As a result, all Igbo’s will be label terrorist and suspect in Nigeria.
If this over zealousness from the Nigeria federal government to declare IPOB a terrorist organisation doesn’t stop as quick as possible before it gets out of hand, the South East may loose the investments and supports from the international communities.
From various course she and her people purse to better her self as Nigeria continues to marginalise and in a show of force kill her teaming youth.
Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has warned courts in the country not to allow themselves to be used to undermine democratic process by granting frivolous orders against the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).
Ohanaeze, in a statement signed by its President-General, Chief Nnia Nwodo, on Monday evening, said it gathered from credible intelligence report that Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the federation, Alhaji Abubakar Malami, had secretly approached courts to obtain an order to designate IPOB a terrorist group.
Nwodo said that such move was not only illegal, but also aimed at pushing further the harassment and intimidation of Igbo youths who have been pursuing their constitutionally guaranteed fundamental human rights in the land.
He also disclosed that Ohanaeze had despatched letters to the courts to be wary of such spurious moves as they were capable of aggravating the already frayed nerves, as well as capable of disrupting the genuine moves made by Ohanaeze and critical Igbo leaders in bringing peace and tranquility to the country.
Few months ago, the south east was named the most safe region in the country Nigeria to do business by the United Nations.
I strongly believe that South East and Igbo’s plans to remain peaceful and law abiding, even in the state of self determination and struggle to be independent.
