Buhari threatens to deal with National Assembly Member Sponsoring IPOB, Igboho

President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that his administration is closing in on a member of the national assembly whom he accuses of sponsoring the Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB, while keeping a deafening silence on the sponsors of Boko Haram terrorists.

The president made the remark in his independence day speech on October 1st, 2021, though he didn't mention the name of the Federal Lawmaker.

The president also promised to take action against high-profile financiers of Kanu and another separatist leader on the run, Sunday Igboho.

"The recent arrests of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Adeyemo, as well as the ongoing investigations, have revealed certain high-profile financiers behind these individuals,” said Mr Buhari. 

"We are pursuing these financiers aggressively, including one who has been identified as a member of the national assembly.

“This is an excellent example of people abdicating their national leadership positions for personal gain. 

"Instead of preaching unity, they fund and mislead our youth into committing criminal acts, which can result in the tragic and unnecessary loss of lives and property.

“While our so-called leaders flee to other countries to hide, our innocent youths are misled and forced to fight for their senseless and destructive causes on the streets.

“The government will continue to improve the security architecture, reduce the enabling environment for criminality to thrive, and eliminate opportunities for terrorism financing,” he said, adding that he expects a greater level of public participation and collaboration with international partners.
