Justice Kafarati fixed January 17 for the judgement.

Justice Abdu Kafarati, Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, had on September 20, 2017, issued the proscription order, following a motion by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN.

Kafarati also declared the pro-Biafra group as a terrorist organisation.

However, IPOB, through its counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor in a motion before the same judge on September 22, argued that the proscription order was unconstitutional.
