On September 20th, 2017 a court in Nigeria issued an order proscribing and designating the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as a terrorist organisation; thereby prohibiting all activities of IPOB, particularly in the South-East and South-South regions of Nigeria and also restraining people from joining the organisation (group).

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) applied to the Federal High Court in Abuja to reverse the court’s order proscribing it and designating it as a terrorist group. But the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has on Thursday 18th September,2018 dismissed the application by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Acting Chief Justice, Abdu Kafarati, while delivering his ruling on the application (on Thursday 18th September,2018), resolved all the three formulated issues against the group, and maintained that the September 20, 2017 proscription order was validly issued.

The Acting Chief Justice dismissed the contention of IPOB’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, who stated that IPOB is only registered in other countries and cannot be sued in Nigeria.

However, the Acting Chief Justice, Abdu Kafarati gainsay that claim, stating that an organisation registered abroad could be likened to a foreigner who could be arrested in another country where he was found to have committed a crime.

The judge also held that the issuance of the proscription order by him in the chambers following an ex parte application was in accordance with the provisions of the Terrorism Prevention Act.


The judge awarded the sum of N500 as cost against IPOB. The Acting CJ, who gave the ruling in chambers, further restrained “any person or group of persons from participating in any of the group’s activities.”

So as of now, January, 18th, 2018, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) organisation, has been declared a terrorist group (organisation) like Boko Haram.
