Comments Off on Biafra: Mike Ozekhome Reacts To Declaration Of Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB As Terrorists | | September 16, 2017 3:56 PM

IPOB were declared terrorists by the Defence headquarters yesterday, while the group has refuted the terrorist tag, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Mike Ozekhome has dismissed the notion as well saying the instances cited by the defence headquarters were not sufficient to label the agitators terrorists.

Renowned lawyer, Mike Ozekhome has reacted to the declaration of Nnamdi Kanu and members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as terrorists.

The military had explained that the declaration was made for the following reasons: “The formation of a Biafra Secret Service; Claimed formation of Biafra National Guard; Unauthorised blocking of public access roads.

“Extortion of money from innocent civilians at illegal roadblocks; militant possession and use of weapons (stones, molotov cocktails, machetes and broken bottles among others) on a military patrol on 10 September 2017.

“Physical confrontation of troops by Nnamdi Kanu and other IPOB actors at a checkpoint on 11 September 2017 and also attempts to snatch their rifles.”

Ozekhome, noted: “I do not believe the instances cited by the Defence Headquarters to justify declaring IPOB a terrorist organization.

“The last time I checked, I can’t remember any of such organisation operating in the country being declared terrorist organisations.

“The herdsmen who go on rampage daily, maiming, raping, killing; those responsible for the Agatu massacre; Shiites massacre, Southern Kaduna pogrom, indiscriminate killings, brazen quit notices’ givers, across Nigeria, etc, have never been arrested, prosecuted, let alone been proscribed and stigmatised as terrorist organisations.

“We must surely have and operate two sets of laws for two sets of people in Nigeria. Nigeria, we hail thee. A government should be seen to be fair to all component parts of Nigeria.”
