Buhari signs proclamation banning IPOB

IPOB
Prior to his departure on Sunday for the 72nd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, where he will be expected to address other world leaders today, sources in the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation alleged that President Buhari reportedly signed the presidential proclamation proscribing IPOB over the group’s involvement in alleged terrorist activities.
This is coming after the Nigerian who few days ago allegedly declared the group a terrorist organization, denied the move.
ThisDay reports that Buhari’s decision to sign the proclamation was a fallout of the sharp criticism that followed the declaration of IPOB as a terrorist organisation by the Nigerian Army at the weekend and the group’s proscription by the South-east governors.
.
With the signing of the proclamation by Buhari, a source in the attorney general’s office explained that the presidency had effectively initiated the formal process of proscribing IPOB in accordance with the provisions of the Terrorism (Prevention) Act, 2011. .
.
It also paved the way for the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN) to head to court to give legal backing to the presidential proclamation.
