Why We Haven't Listed IPOB As A Terrorist Group - UK Govt

The British Government denies listing the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB as a terrorist organization.

The British High Commission in Nigeria made a statement against inaccurate reports. A statement from Atinuke Akande-Alegbe was circulated outlining the corrupt reports by mentioning that “It is not true that the UK Government has added any group to its list of terrorist organizations banned under UK law.”

The Statement denies the claims about proscribed organizations. All of the claims in these articles are false.

The government of the UK has published a document about a domestic separatist group in SE Nigeria that reports inaccurate information. The document, which is used to provide country history and background knowledge for UK decision-makers, reported on the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) which is not a domestic separatist group.

The UK considers all asylum and human rights claims on an individual facts basis in accordance with the UN refugee convention and European Convention of Human Rights.

The CPIN on separatist groups in the South East provides an overview of the risks that exist. This is done after an analysis of media outlets, as well as other reliable sources, including government agencies and non-government organizations.

The UK is acknowledging that Proscribed by the Nigerian Government, IPOB has been reported as a Terrorist Organisation, and advises that those who have been violently persecuted should not be given protection.
