The federal government has located a slush account in Paris to which some Nigerians have made huge deposits in support of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
It was learnt that the French government promised to take action as soon as the IPOB’s slush account was known to it.
A top security source, Sahara Reporters report spoke in confidence, said: “Intelligence gathering has led to the discovery of an account in Paris into which some Nigerians in the Diaspora remit funds to support IPOB.”
“From the said account, funds were being drawn for the activities of IPOB at home and abroad. The relevant security agencies did a thorough job and provided incontrovertible evidence on the basis of which the government proscribed the terrorist organisation.”
“These Nigerians in the Diaspora are using France as a clearing house.”
“Investigations also confirmed inflows into the account from Holland, Hungary, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Turkey, Singapore and other parts of Europe.”
“In fact, a football tournament was recently organised in Senegal to raise funds for IPOB.”
“As a matter of fact, the account is being used to get money from a lot of people in the Diaspora.”
“What many Nigerians did not know is that the Minister of Information and Culture was talking on the basis of a credible intelligence report.”
“With cooperation by the international community, especially relevant countries, we will soon get the list of all the people remitting funds into the account in Paris.”
“IPOB members are becoming desperate in the last 72 hours. About two days ago, some members of the terrorist group breezed into our Embassy in Hong Kong under the pretence of renewing their passports but ended up staging a protest.”
“The IPOB members also demonstrated at our embassy in Spain a few days ago.”
