While narrating what happened today at federal high court in Abuja, the lead counsel to Indigenous People Of Biafra, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor lamented about the attitude of the Presiding Judge, according to him, “I entered inside the court this morning with Barrister Maxwell Okpara, only to be informed that the same judge(Abdul Kafarati) that granted the prayers for the proscription of IPOB has postponed the matter to a later date”. In his own view, Barrister Maxwell Okpara said that the man is obviously running away from the case,
We’re now waiting for the Court clerk to pick another date of adjournment.
It could be recalled that A Federal High Court in Abuja led by Justice Abdul Kafarati on 20th of September 2017 declared the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) “acts of terrorism”.
