Nigerian Drags U.S to court for not declaring Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB terrorists

A Nigerian by name Nze Charles Ugwu, has taken the US Embassy in Nigeria before a Federal High Court in Abuja, for saying it does not view the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, as terrorists.

He filed the case through his lawyer, Simon Kanshio on the heels of the statement recently made by the  embassy’s spokesman,Russel Brooks  that IPOB was not a terrorist organisation under US laws.

In the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/977/17 and dated October 12, 2017, Ugwu asked the court to compel Brooks to withdraw his statement within seven days of delivery of judgment in the case and also determine “a true interpretation of sections 1, 4 and 5 of the Terrorism (Prevention) (Amendment) Act, 2013 and the United Nations Convention on Terrorism.
