Impose travel ban on Nigerian Officials, IPOB sues US, Europe, Australia

by on February 20, 2017
The Indigenous Peo­ples of Biafra (IPOB) has urged the United States of America, Europe, Australia and other civilized countries to impose travel ban on Nigerian government officials over alleged human rights abus­es in the country.
According to IPOB, such sanction would com­pel the federal govern­ment to comply with the various court rulings on its detained leader, Nnamdi Kanu and other Biafran agitators.
IPOB which made the call in a press statement issued yesterday by its Media and Publicity Of­ficer, Emma Powerful, expressed shock that no sanctions had been con­sidered against Nigeria by the international com­munity despite obvious human rights violation especially against freedom fighters in Nigeria.
The Biafran group la­mented the continued killing of its members by security operatives during peaceful protests yet with­out any concern by the in­ternational community.
The statement reads in part: “We wonder why Britain, USA and other countries of the civilized world are still keeping quiet as flagrant abuse of human rights is going on in Nigeria under APC gov­ernment.
