Possible Reasons IPOB Was Proscribed by worksmart(m): 3:18am On Jun 01, 2018
What is IPOB?
IPOB has not registered itself as a legitimate organisation.

Is it a political party?
Is it pressure group?
Is it a charity?
Is an NGO?
Is it a professional body?
Is it a company or business? is it a radio station?
Is it a protest group or rent- a- mob group?

What are the laws and regulation that that govern IPOB organisation?
What codes of conduct and accountability have IPOB signed up to?

Who are the funders of IPOB, is the sources of their funding legal, transparent and available for public scrutiny?

Do they pay taxes to the goverment?

Who is the leader of IPOB, who are the board members of the IPOB organisation.

How is IPOB as an organisation being run and conducted ?
Does it threaten and intimidate the public
Does it confront , challenge and dare they the govt, police and constituted authority?
Does it issue orders (e.g. "Sit-at-home"wink in a menacing and intimidating manner to the public?

All the above considered the govt saw an organisational known as IPOB that has not defined or registered itself , and therefore are not bound by any organisational rules threatening war and violence, making hates speeches , giving intimidating and threatening orders to the public to sit at home.
A group whose trademark is to take the path of confrontation and defiance towards the authorities and security services.
A group whose leadership is mainly a mystery and sources of funding is undeclared.

In the absence of IPOB defining and regulating itself in a lawful manner it may well be unsurprising that the authorities had to find some way to outlaw it and defining IPOB as a terrorist organisation was the way to do so.

Now substitute IPOB with Fulani herdsmen in the original post and give us a reason why Buhari has not deemed it fit to pronounce killer herdsmen terrorists.

All these questions are not necessarily. One essential question people should ask themselves is why did federal government proscribe IPOB as a terrorist organisation but the America and the EU came out to say that IPOB is not a terrorist group?

Does it mean that America that has fought global terrorist groups like Taliban, Al Qaeda and Hamas suddenly had a brain freeze when it came to IPOB?

Why do people think that the British government has not shut Radio Biafra down from broadcasting from Britain?

Why is IPOB still freely demonstrating in America, Britain, Germany and others but those countries are not disturbing them?

The answer is that those countries do not see IPOB AS a terrorist group, and for good reason.

The reason why they don't see IPOB AS a terrorist group is that all terrorist groups have one thing in common which IPOB does not have, and that is, they do not use of violence to achieve their goal.

IPOB has not used violence to try and achieve Biafra. IPOB may have had violent clashes with the authorities, but that is a different thing all together. There is no country in the world where certain groups don't clash with the authorities or security agencies, that results in violence.


But it is a different thing when a group is using violence, wether they clash with the authorities or not. Boko Haram uses violence wether they clash with anyone or not, Herdsmen use violence wether they clash with the authorities or not, same goes for Niger Delta militants

But IPOB has never gone out of its way to unleash violence.

That is why IPOB isn't a terrorist group.

Terrorist in my mind mean people who use violence to achieve political goals. I would be willing to call Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF) terrorist. On the other hand they seem like the mentally challenged people who used to flood nairaland with fake facebook propaganda about Trump granting Biafra, Israel supporting them and lastly God ordaining their insanity.

Those guys were arresting for allegedly trying to take over the Enugu government house. The most hilarious thing about the statements they made. These guys are truly delusional.


Onwuka had addressed at least four separate press conferences within the month, claiming BZF had the backing of the United States of America and Israel, and stressing that previous observances of the restriction order achieved nothing.

The group’s Deputy Leader, Chief Ambrose Ugwu, confirmed the arrests, saying it was the will of God but would not deter BZF from “achieving Biafra”.


Asked what the mission of the agitators was, he said they were at the venue for the “declaration of Biafra’s independence, as promised… The American president summoned President Buhari some weeks back and warned him that he should not interfere with our activities.

I find the whole thing funny. Benjamin Ikwuka and Biafran Zionist group were arrested in 2014, paraded half unclad and charged with amongst other things, the murder of a Police man.

Not much was heard from Benjamin Onwuka. Suddenly, they say that his group were going to hoist a flag at government house Enugu and he was arrested again? It doesn't make any sense to me. What happend with his first case?
Remarkably, nobody has ever seen Benjamin Onwuka since that parade 4 years ago.

Something is fishy here

Nigeria has her laws same way the US and UK have theirs too. ISIS and Al Qaeda have not been officially proscribed by the Nigerian government but the US and UK governments say they are terrorist groups.

You are confused.

Fulani herdsmen are not terrorist they herd cattle and provide an economic function.

Anybody who kills indescriminately is either insane or an undeclared terrorist, they cannot be called herdsmen.

I will welcome any herdsmen that want to visit me they no less peaceful than you and I.

In this era... We take responsibility for what ever we say
For all you have said here and now
May the Fulani herdsmen visit you

Visit you they must
Unless there is no God

I have nothing to fear from herdsmen. May they visit me if they wish.

People who kill innocent people are terrorists or criminals - they are not herdsmen

Boko haram are likely the people killing civilians in Benue and other farming communities but our corrupt news media choose to label them Fulani herdsmen, probably for political reason since PMB is a Fulani

Okay you now say killing, the Fulani kills people indiscriminately, HOW MANY HAS IPOB KILLED? WHEN DID IPOB CONFRONT THE GOVERNMENT OF THE ZOO, I NEED JUST ONE EXAMPLE, INEED AN EZAMPLE OF WHEN IPOB WENT AND ATTACKED THE GOVERNMENT, I DON'T MEAN PROTESTING, WHEN ANYBODY WITH A BRAIN EVEN THE SIZE OF A MUSTARD SEED ANALYSES ALL THE CLASHES WITH THE USELESS GOVERNMENT, IT IS ALWAYS THE GOVERNMENT THAT ATTACKED IPOB, NOT THE OTHER WAY ROUND, PROTEST IS A RIGHT OF A PERSON, JUST AS VOTING IS A RIGHT. WHAT KIND OF TERRORISTS ARE THEY? VERBAL TERRORISTS. I AM SHOUTING BECAUSE YOU PEOPLE DON'T HAVE BRAINS. THAT IS WHY YOUR PRESIDENT IS AN ILLITERATE CALLED MUHAMMADU BUHARI, A GREAT PEODOPHILE.

Then it's safe to say IPOB members are merchants, not terrorists. Can you see how warped your logic is?

Herdsmen herd cattle, terrorists terrorise communities.

IPOB terrorise.
The moment herdsmen left their business to kill and maim their host community, they became terrorists.
It's good you said those killing in Benue are either criminals of terrorists (I say they are both) and they are herdsmen. Miyetti Allah, the umbrella body of herdsmen already owned up to the killings.
Preach your herdsmen are not terrorists nonsense to your fellow illiterate zombies
