BHC Clarifies Report Of Nigerian Separatist Groups In The SE And Deny Labelling IPOB As Terrorist Group

In a statement on Friday May 6, 2022 by a British High Commission (BHC) spokesperson, Atinuke Akande-Alegbe described the reports as “inaccurate” and stressed that the British government only acknowledged Nigeria’s classification of the group as Terrorist group.

Akande- Akegbe noted that IPOB is not a proscribed organization in the UK and that only the group members who have committed violent crimes in Nigeria will not be granted asylum.

The statement reads

 “We are aware of inaccurate reporting circulating in the media and online that the UK Government has added the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to the UK’s list of terrorist groups or organisations banned under UK law. These reports are untrue. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is not a proscribed organisation in the UK.

“The inaccurate reporting relates to the 13 April 2022 publication by the UK Government of a revised Country Policy and Information note (CPIN) on separatist groups in SE Nigeria, including the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). CPINs provide country of origin information (COl) and analysis of COI for use by UK Government decision-makers handling particular types of protection and human rights claims.

“All asylum and human rights claims made in the UK are considered on their individual facts in accordance with our obligations under the UN Refugee Convention and European Convention on Human Rights, taking into account relevant background country information and case law.

“The CPIN on separatist groups in the South East, including the Indigenous People of Biafra, provides a general assessment of risks faced by individuals belonging to those groups. These assessments are based on an analysis of publicly available country information obtained from a wide range of reliable sources including media outlets; UK and other governments; local, national and international organisations; and non-government organisations.

“This CPIN also acknowledges that the Nigerian government has proscribed IPOB as a terrorist organisation, some members of IPOB have reportedly used violence against the state and members of the public, and advises that persons who have committed human rights abuses must not be granted protection.”


  1. I love this clarification. Whoever commit a crime should face it and pay dearly for it. I strongly support that perpetrators of this gruesome act going on in the East to be dealt with. Anyone involve in this all should face the law.

    1. You’re talking nonsense. Then you go behind to praise your coward and violence promoting dictator.

  2. All those that masturbating over the previous fake news should all come out and have another round of orgasm

    1. You won't see them

    2. They have gone to sleep. They can only hate but they forgot we are from the EAST. God's own people

    3. You know deep down you that every word said about this evil IPOB group in the previous comment is the truth. But most of you will keep supporting them since you are not based in that side but remember it might hit you one day.

    4. 16.51 👌👌 The evil they support will come back to consume them.

  3. Anon 16:51 you just have to swallow your pride and speak with humility and wisdom. The narrative that Nigeria paid for did not sit well with the UK.

  4. All of you who hate IPOB because you love falsehood will one day hear your children promoting the movement. IPOB as an organisation will be taught in schools across the world.

  5. Who doesn't know that they keep trying to call IPOB a bad name to hang it. They can only deceive Nigerians who want to be deceived. The British know better.

    What have they done with the list of terrorists given to them by America and Dubai?
