Senate President Saraki Unhappy with Military Statement About IPOB


Senate President Bukola Saraki on Monday blamed the statement by the Nigerian military that the Indigenous People of Biafra is a terrorist organisation association and the ban by South-East Governors, saying due process was not taken after.

“The announcement of the proscription of the group known as Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) by Governors of the South-east states and the categorisation of the group as a ‘terrorist organisation’ by the Nigerian military are unconstitutional and does not follow due process,” Saraki said in a statement on Monday.

“Our laws make clear provisions for taking such actions and without the due process being followed, such declaration cannot have effect. I am sure the President will do the needful by initiating the right process.” The Senate President believes that “initiating the right process” will go a long way in demonstrating to the world at large that Nigeria “is a country that operates by laid down process under every circumstance”.
