The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, has filed an application at the Federal high court Abuja challenging the court’s order banning the activities of the pro Biafran group in Nigeria.
In application filed by its lawyers Ifeanyi Ejiofor,the group urged the court to set aside its order banning the activities of the group on grounds of lack of jurisdiction because it was granted against any entity unknown to law.
The group also alleged that the order was unconstitutional because it was made in violation of constitutionally guaranteed rights to self determination of its members.

It could be recalled that the Acting chief Judge of the Federal High court Justice Abdul Kafarati last Wednesday granted an order banning the activities of IPOB in Nigeria particularly in south East and south south.
