IPOB Is Not A Terrorist Organization Says UK Government
British High Commission in Nigeria has criticized information that UK
has counted the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on the UK’s list of terrorist groups.
This is reaching a day after it was said that the UK aimed to exclude IPOB fellows who have perpetrated human rights misuses from its asylum agenda.
Explaining its statement, British High Commission in Nigeria in a report made public to newspersons: “
We are conscious of false reporting spreading in the media and online that the UK Government has included the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to the UK’s list of terrorist groups or organizations prohibited under UK law. These statements are inaccurate. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is not a proscribed organization in the UK.
“The incorrect reporting correlates to the April 13th 2022 publication by the UK Government of a repaired Nation Policy and Statement note (CPIN) on separatist groups in SE Nigeria, including the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). CPINs supply country of origin details (COl) and analysis of COI for use by UK Government decision-makers taking particular types of defense and human rights declarations.
“This CPIN also believes that the Nigerian government has proscribed IPOB as a terrorist association, some members of IPOB have reportedly utilized brutality against the state and members of the people, and instructs that persons who have perpetrated human rights abuses must not be granted security.”
We also use this opportunity to warn people against false news and media speculations,
Spreading false news can cause a lot of harm beyond repair,
You may think you are doing the right or you are growing your media page or what to e recognized, but with that, meanwhile you are causing another person pain,
let’s get our news and our information correct before publishing it to the public,
we never have anything against the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB
And Uk Government has its policy, we don’t conclude without a proof,
All asylum and human rights claims made in the UK are considered on their individual facts,
declaration of someone or some organization as a terrorist required a lot of investigations and enough convincing proof, it’s not a checkbook you can sign whenever you want because it’s your money but something that has to go through different offices and tables,
So coming up with a piece of false news just to damage an image of an individual or organization is not advisable and it’s punishable offense (law)
he added we can’t just declare anybody or organization a terrorist simply because people say it or advise,
this is a human right we are talking about here not an enemy of the individual.
Uk Government is known for peace and understanding,
they work according to law and constitution, not for personal beef,
I know Government wants the best for everyone, that’s the goal and we must stand by it,
we know what is going on and we must make sure peace gain it’s place,
But spreading false news everywhere on social media is not doing any good
So let’s put an end to false news and focus median to save lives, You know the best thing to do than posting what nobody ever said,
you can make your fan without lying, so let’s be guided
IPOB is not a proscribed organization in the UK and they are not a terrorist, British High Commission in Nigeria
Everyone has the right to fight for his/her freedom and i think that’s what they are doing demanding but when you do it with violence, and violating’ that make it so bad and we are yet to see that from the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
