The Indigenous People of Biafra has sued Prof. Ivan Kasheen of Batimore University, United State of America, over his call to designate the group as a terrorist organisation.

The Media and Publicity Secretary of the secessionists, Emma Powerful, disclosed this in a statement yesterday.

Powerful explained Kasheen published a “false and malicious” article against IPOB, urging the US government to name it a terrorist group.

He said its team of lawyers, led by Dr Bruce Fein, had dragged the professor to court over his statement.

The statement reads in part, “The global movement and family of Indigenous People of Biafra wishes to announce to the general public that our legal luminaries in the US, led by Dr Bruce Fein, IPOB attorney in USA, has taken Prof. Ivan Sascha Kasheen of Batimore University, USA ,to court for writing falsehood and junk against IPOB.

“Dr Ivan was paid to write false and malicious article against IPOB and its leader which was published by Washington Times invariably asking the US State Department to designate a peaceful self determination movement like IPOB as a terrorist organisation.”

The IPOB spokesman added that the group’s legal team had instituted a case against the professor in a US court.

“This paid agent will testify before the court why he accused IPOB wrongly and who paid him to do the hatchet job,” he added.

Powerful also said the group would address a “world press conference” in Abuja on Wednesday (today) to “address some burning issues surrounding our leader’s court appearance and the struggle generally.”
