STILL ON BIAFRA ISSUE: The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called for the dismissal of Defence Spokesman, John Enenche, claiming he deceived the public by declaring them a terrorist group.
Eneche made the declaration, citing the “formation of a Biafra secret service, militant possession and use of weapons as well as physical confrontation of troops” as part of reasons for the declaration.
But IPOB have accused him of usurping the roles and responsibilities of the judiciary, arguing that he had no legal backing.
“This declaration is not only judicially provocative and belligerent, the Idoma-born army officer acted beyond the mandate of the Nigerian army as specified in sections 10 & 11 of CAP A20 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria (L.F.N.) 2004 and in section-217(2) of the Nigerian fraudulent constitution,” read a statement by Emma Nmezu and Clifford Iroanya, who identified themselves as spokespersons of the organisation.
“Recall that on March 1, 2017, the Honourable Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako of the federal high court, Abuja declared in her ruling that IPOB is not an unlawful society/organisation.
“Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako gave her judgment having studied the conditions for an organisation to be deemed unlawful as stipulated in section-62 of CAP C38 L.F.N. 2004.
“Up till this day, that ruling from Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako has not been upturned by any court.
“And for this reason, Major-General John Enenche (though a Biafran from Idoma land) must be dismissed from the Nigerian army, arrested and brought to trial in the court of Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako.” Continue at Dailypost
