Nnamdi Kanu Challenges Court Order Declaring IPOB as a Terrorist Organisation

Embattled IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, whose whereabouts has been unknown since the violent crisis in Abia started two weeks ago, has challenged the ruling which declared his group as a terrorist organization.
In a statement released on Friday by Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), challenged the court order proscribing his group and declaring it a terrorist group.

According to the motion, dated September 21, Ejiofor argued that IPOB is a non-violent organisation; therefore the decision of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to issue an order, based on a motion made ex-parte, was illegal.

An ex-parte is a motion heard by the court without the presence of the other party/parties.

Premium Times reported that the lawyer added that his client, whose whereabouts has been unknown since the violent crisis in Abia started two weeks ago, was not allowed fair hearing and that the court lacked the jurisdiction to grant such an order.

This is a developing story, we'll be bringing you more details later.
