The Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) on Friday asked the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to strike out the ex-parte order that declared it a terrorist organisation.
IPOB, in a motion it filed pursuant to Section 6(6) (1) of the 1999 constitution, as amended, maintained that the order which the Acting Chief Judge of the high court, Justice Abdul Kafarati granted to the Federal Government was made without jurisdiction.

The group said that the order was granted against an entity unknown to law.
IPOB approached the court through its team of lawyers led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

Ejiofor noted that the leader of the pro-Biafra group, Nnamdi Kanu was not allowed fair hearing, adding that the court lacked the jurisdiction to grant such an order.

The high court had outlawed the pro-Biafra group on the strength of an ex-parte motion filed by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
Justice Kafafati declared as illegal, all activities of IPOB, particularly in the South-east and South-South regions of Nigeria.

He further restrained any person or group of persons from participating in any of the group’s activities. Directing Malami to ensure that it published the order prescribing the group in the official gazette, as well as in two national dailies.
