IPOB - FG reveals group’s sponsors

Nnamdi Kanu, who leads the Indigenous People of Biafra movement, is a fierce critic of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari

The Federal Government has revealed that some supporters of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) send money to them from France.

The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed said this at a press conference at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja on Wednesday.
The minister said "We have the records, we know IPOB collects money from many people from diaspora,they collect money from many people in Nigeria; they collect money from some foreign countries, this is clear.
"Let me tell you, the financial headquarters is in France, we know, but you see, can you as a government stop sending money to your parents? You have to block the sources of finance that is what I said recently.
"It is incontrovertible that some people in diaspora contribute money to IPOB, where does he get his money from. We know this as a fact again there are a few very naughty diplomatic issues which you need to skip.

"For instance who does not know that the IPOB internal radio is located in London? We know the diplomatic moves we have been taking and approaching the UK, all the damages it has done  but they don't see it that way, for them (the British government), it is about freedom of expression."
This is coming after the Governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose asked the minister to reveal the sponsors of the proscribed group, IPOB.
