Image result for Operation Python Dance II: Abia stakeholders criticise military

In the same vein, the Federal high court also proscribed the group on the request of the Nigerian government, a verdict which is being challenged by the group.

Ejiofor, in an originating summons claimed that the where about of the IPOB leader has remained unknown since the day men of the Nigerian Army invaded his resident.

The army is yet to respond to the demands for the disclosure of the whereabouts of Kanu.

Mohammed's claim is coming days after the Nigerian army, under the "Operation Python Dance II" invaded home of the IPOB leader and clashed with members of the group in Umuahia, Abia state capital.

Kanu is now on bail pending the resumption of his trial in Abuja next month on charges of treasonable felony.

Dan-Ali made this remark when he visited the Permanent Representative of Nigeria to the United Nations, in NY, the United States of America, Prof Tijjani Bande.

Natural disaster of magnitude 3.4 detected near North Korea's nuclear test site
Once North Korea obtains nuclear state status, it will try to negotiate with the US and South Korea for what it really wants. An natural disaster of magnitude 3.4 was detected in North Korea on Saturday, the Chinese quake administration said.

Igbos for Nigeria Movement noted that going forward, the expectation is that Ohaneze and any one that genuinely calls himself a leader in Igboland must now put the interest of Igbo people above their personal interest and this includes accepting that IPOB was a monster that was set to consume the genuine cause which every Igbo man had vigorously pursued in the past.

In fact, the federal government had even said it had begun processes of blocking foreign sources of funding to IPOB. IPOB is described as a separatist group wanting to breakaway from Africa's most populous nation.

This Notice shall be cited as the Terrorism (Prevention) (Proscription Order) Notice, 2017.

Following the development, his team of lawyers led by Ifeanyi Ejiofor, on Wednesday filed a suit before the Federal High Court, Abuja asking it for an order mandating Buratai to produce Kanu in court.

But IPOB had equally approached the court, demanding it to quash the order, saying the court order that said it was a terrorist organisation was a black market order.
