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.
