The account details of the sponsors of terrorist group, IPOB, will be released by the Federal government to the French government.

According to the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said that France was the headquarters of IPOB’s funding, but the french on Thursday said it had no knowledge of IPOB’s presence in France.

But a very senior government official said the FG had reached out to France, explaining that it did not accuse the country of being the sponsors of Biafra but that a large transfer of funds were made regularly from France to IPOB in Nigeria.

It was learnt that the FG had asked the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit and the Central Bank of Nigeria to compile the needed information on the sponsors and it hand it over to the French government.

The government will also write the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering, which is tasked with the mandate of supervising, monitoring and regulating Designated Non-Financial Institutions as regards compliance to Nigeria’s Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism.

According to the government other countries from which IPOB also received huge cash inflows include: Turkey, Senegal, Malaysia, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and the United States.

Punchng’s source said reports would also be given to the aforementioned countries. He added, “Before his arrest, Nnamdi Kanu had appealed to people of Igbo extraction in some of these countries to provide him with funds which would be used in buying weapons and bringing down the Nigerian Government.

In a video, which has even gone viral on Youtube, Kanu said he needed guns. This is not hearsay. We will also be writing these countries informing them of the need to ensure that IPOB’s source of funding is traced and blocked.”
