The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Thursday filed an appeal before the Court of Appeal in Abuja against the Federal High Court’s proscription order.

Justice Adamu Kafarati had on September 20, 2017 granted the order while ruling on an ex parte application filed by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN).

Justice Kafarati on January 18 rejected a motion by IPOB, seeking reversal of the proscription order.

In an appeal filed by its lawyer, Infeayi Ejiofor, IPOB wants the Court of Appeal to set aside the entire decision of the Federal High Court including the one declaring it a terrorist organisation.

The group raised five grounds of appeal, claiming that the mandatory statutory condition requiring the President’s approval under Section 2 (1) (C) of the Terrorism (Prevention) (Amendment) Act, 2013, was not met.

IPOB also argued that the memo which purportedly gave approval to the AGF’s request for its proscription was signed by the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, instead of President Muhammadu Buhari himself as stipulated by law.
