American Veterans of Igbo Plummet (Energetic) has recorded a claim against an American teacher, Dr Ivan Sascha Sheehan and the College of Baltimore, Maryland, US, for distributing an article which named the Native Nation of Biafra (IPOB) a fear based oppressor association.
Ardent, which contains Nigerians of Igbo extraction who have served in various parts of the US military, documented the claim as of late at the US Region Court for the Area of Maryland, blaming Dr Sheehan for distributing seven abusive focuses in Washington Times against IPOB on Monday, October 4, 2021.
In a 16-page court record made accessible to Vanguard on Tuesday by IPOB pioneer, Nnamdi Kanu’s Unique Direction, Aloy Ejimakor, the gathering requested that respondents – Dr Sheehan and the College of Baltimore pay $2 million and $1.5 million for general and exceptional harms separately.
The report somewhat read, “Offended party, American Veterans of Igbo Plummet (“Eager”), through its undersigned lawyer, and documents this Revised Grievance for slander chasing, among different reliefs, compensatory and correctional harms against Litigants, Ivan Sascha Sheehan and the College of Baltimore, Maryland.
“On the side of this Changed Objection, Offended party realleges every one of the charges of Starting Grievance as though completely put forward thus and Offended party further expresses that the Underlying Protest was revised for misnomer (College of Maryland Baltimore) and that the alteration accurately named the Litigant (College of Baltimore.”
In the explanation of realities, it said, “Approximately Monday, October 4, 2021, Litigant Sheehan distributed in The Washington Times an “Examination/Assessment” slanderous article featured “US overlooks little African fear monger bunch IPOB at its hazard.
“The article contained various abusive deceptions about IPOB distributed with hostility and with information on their misrepresentation or with foolish negligence of regardless of whether they were valid. Disparaging misrepresentation number 1 affirmed “An African fear based oppressor association [IPOB] is suing U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken… .” IPOB isn’t a fear based oppressor association under U.S. regulation or any law of a far off country other than Nigeria.
“IPOB’s assignment as psychological oppressor association in Nigeria was made by means of a legal decree with no conference or fair treatment. IPOB goes against savagery. It upholds a free Biafran power by quiet means. As of now, the Government Republic of Nigeria is taken part in a continuous slaughter of Biafrans.
“Psychological militant associations utilize unlawful savagery against regular citizens to progress political targets. IPOB doesn’t. Slanderous misrepresentation number 2 declared, in setting, that IPOB merits posting as an unfamiliar fear based oppressor association by the Secretary of State as per segment 219 of the Migration and Ethnicity Act: “The savage secessionist bunch being referred to — the Native Nation of Biafra (IPOB) — is yet to be assigned as an Unfamiliar Psychological militant Association by the US Branch of State.”
