The group said that indeed IPOB is not a terrorist organization going by extant national and international laws, especially the terrorist prevention Act 2011, as amended in 2015.

Rising from Imeobi meeting in Enugu, last night, the apex Igbo body said it stood for a united Nigeria under a restructured federal system of government that guarantees justice, equity and fairness.
