Nigeria Writes To Foreign Embassies To Declare IPOB A Terrorist Organization

The Nigerian government  confirmed on Wednesday that it had written to foreign embassies requesting cooperation on the proscription of pro-Biafra group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

 

Among others, the foreign ministry said it had formally notified the United States, United Kingdom, France, Canada and other embassies of a court decision proscribing IPOB and declaring it a terrorist organization.

On the issue of labeling IPOB a terrorist organization, the United States were the first to decline despite an Abuja Court order of August 20. The U.K. also said the group was not proscribed under their laws and sought the whereabout of Kanu from the Nigerian government.
