Biafra: IPOB Calls For Sack Of Nigerian Military Spokesman by sparrow253: 5:43pm On Sep 16, 2017
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.”

They added that what constitute the “acts of terrorism” are given in the terrorism (prevention) Act of 2011, where “section 2 stipulated that only a judge can declare an organisation proscribed based on proven case of acts of terrorism and such case will be presented to the judge through an application made by the attorney-general or the national security adviser or the inspector general of police with the approval of the president. The judge’s declaration will thereafter be gazetted”.

“The questions that now beg for answers are: (1) Does the director of defence information (DDI) of the Nigerian army (Major-General John Enenche) fall into any of the three categories of persons that should make an application to a Judge to declare IPOB a terrorist organization?” they asked.

“(2) Which judge did the DDI make such application to and was it approved by the president prior to submitting the application?

“(3) Where is the approval given to the DDI by the judge?

(4) When and where was the Judge’s declaration gazetted?”

“In particular, this deceitful act is a violation and interference into the judicial arm of government and it is an overreach. It is also a deliberate act in contempt of a subsisting ruling in a competent court of law.

“IPOB, whether led by Nnamdi Kanu or led by the DOS, is not a terrorist organization because no court of competent jurisdiction has so declared it. The so-called declaration by Major-General John Enenche is null and void and of no effect.”
