Rtd. Justice Abdul-Kafarti Adamu who gave the Proscription order tagging IPOB as a terrorist group is reportedly dead.
Rtd. Justice Abdul-Kafarti Adamu is dead.
He was called to Bar in 1979, which the immediate past chief judge of the federal high court has taken a bow out of service in 2017.
Justice Abdul Kafarati ruled that the Attorney General of the Federation had used proper legal processes to apply for IPOB’s proscription in September 2017.
IPOB lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, challenged the proscription order arguing that the government had violated the rights of the group having secured the order ex parte.
An ex parte motion is one that does not require the other party to be represented for the court to take a decision. The judge said the AG having the consent of the president was enough grounds for the earlier proscription ruling.
Rtd. Justice Abdul-Kafarti Adamu also ordered the applicants to pay 500,000 naira as damages stressing that the rights of IPOB members had not been abused by the legal processes.
