Aloy Ejimakor, a lawyer to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has rubbished reports that the agitation group is ranked the 10th deadliest terrorist organisation in the world.
Ejimakor said the report by the Global Terror Index that IPOB was the 10th deadliest terrorist group was false.
He explained that IPOB was only named in the index report because the Nigerian Government had declared the group a terrorist organization.
In a tweet, Ejimakor noted that a terrorist group cannot be registered like IPOB.
He wrote: “It’s FALSE that IPOB is now ranked the 10th deadliest terrorist group in the world by the Global Terror Index. IPOB was only mentioned as having been declared a terrorist group in Nigeria. IPOB is registered. Terrorist groups can’t be registered. If you try, you will be arrested.”
