UPDATED: Financial links exist between Sunday Igboho and terrorism financier, Nigerian govt says – Premium Times

Sunday Igboho
The Nigerian government said on Friday that its investigation has established a link between Sunday Adeyemo and a suspected financier of terrorism.
The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, disclosed this while addressing journalists in Abuja on update on the investigations carried out on Mr Adeyemo, and Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Mr Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho, is pushing for an independent country for the Yoruba. The separatist, who is currently being held in the Republic of Benin, has repeatedly insisted that he employs only peaceful means to achieve his goal.
Mr Malami said the government’s findings show that a company controlled by Mr Adeyemo transferred N12.75 million to another controlled by Abdullahi Usman, who is suspected of financing terrorism in Nigeria.
He said: “Investigation reveals that Adesun International Concept Ltd (belonging to Igboho) transferred the sum of twelve million seven hundred and fifty thousand naira (N12, 750,000) to Abbal Bako & Sons.
“It might be recalled that Abbal Bako & Sons and its promoter Abdullahi Umar Usman are suspects in the on-going Joint Terrorist Financing Investigation. Abdullahi Umar Usman is by way of financial transaction connected to SURAJO ABUBAKAR MUHAMMAD (who was sentenced to life imprisonment in UAE on charges of financing terrorism [Boko Haram]).
“This report shows the nexus between separatists’ agitation, terrorism financing and disruptions of peace in the country.”
Mr Malami also said the report found “connections of financial transaction between Adesun International Concept Ltd (belonging to Igboho) and some construction companies and businesses among others”.
The government also echoed President Muhammadu Buhari’s Independence Day remark that a serving federal lawmaker is among Mr Adeyemo’s sponsors.
“The major financier of the fugitive and separatists was found to be a federal lawmaker in the National Assembly,” Mr Malami said.
He also said Sunday Igboho “is linked to 43 bank accounts in nine banks.”
Giving a breakdown of various sums of money allegedly received by Mr Igboho from his financiers, Mr said, “A total sum of ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-SEVEN MILLION, ONE AND FORTY-FIVE THOUSAND NAIRA ONLY (N127, 145,000.00) was received by Igboho from his financiers between 22nd October, 2013 and 28th September, 2020 through Adesun International Concept Ltd accounts,” a firm linked to the Yoraba nation separatist.
“A total sum of TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-THREE MILLION, ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY-EIGHT THOUSAND, TWO HUNDRED NAIRA ONLY (N273,198,200.00) transaction outflows was recorded from Sunday Igboho’s account between 15th March, 2013 and 11 the March, 2021.
“Investigation reveals that Adesun International Concept Ltd (belonging to Igboho) transferred the sum of twelve million seven hundred and fifty thousand naira (N12, 750,000) to Abbal Bako & Sons,” a company linked to Abdullahi Umar Usman who are suspects in the on-going Joint Terrorist Financing Investigation,” the AGF said.
“This report shows the nexus between separatists’ agitation, terrorism financing and disruptions of peace in the country,” the minister noted.
Mr Adeyemo escalated his agitation for an independent Yoruba nation following incessant cases of kidnapping allegedly attributable to Fulani herders in Oyo State and other parts of South-west states earlier this year.
