Lai Mohammed Should Be Ashamed For Justifying IPOB’s Proscription, Amnesty For Bandits – Group’s Spokesperson
The Indigenous People of Biafra has described the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, as the spokesman for groups terrorising and tormenting Nigerians for justifying the proscription of IPOB and granting of amnesty to bandits and terrorists.
IPOB described Mohammed’s comment as disgraceful, saying the world should hold him accountable for defending terrorists and offering them amnesty in the country.
The IPOB media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, told SaharaReporters on Thursday that the minister should be ashamed of himself for making such utterances.
Mohammed had earlier said bandits cannot be proscribed in Nigeria because they do not have any identity or name they identify with as a group.
The minister said this on AIT’s Kaakaki programme on Wednesday, explaining that proscribing bandits in the country is not what really matters but how they are treated.
According to him, bandits and others who challenge the security of a nation cannot be legally proscribed since they do not have an identity.
