President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed on Friday, September 30 that Oduduwa Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are bankrolled by a lawmaker in the National Assembly alongside other high profile Nigerians.
Though he refused to name the alleged sponsors, according to him, his regime is vigorously pursuing the financiers.
He added that Nigeria’s unity is not negotiable.
He said, “Nigeria is for all of us. Its unity is not negotiable. And its ultimate success can only be achieved if we all come together with a common goal of having peace and prosperity for our nation.
“We shall continue to work on dialogue-based solutions to address legitimate grievances. But we remain ready to take decisive actions against secessionist agitators and their sponsors who threaten our national security.
“The recent arrests of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Adeyemo, and the ongoing investigations being conducted have revealed certain high-profile financiers behind these individuals. We are vigorously pursuing these financiers, including one identified as a serving member of the National Assembly.
“This is a clear example of how people abandon their national leadership positions for their selfish gains. Instead of preaching unity, they are funding and misleading our youths to conduct criminal acts that sometimes lead to unfortunate and unnecessary loss of lives and property.
“As the so-called leaders run abroad to hide, our innocent youths are misled and left in the streets to fight for their senseless and destructive causes.”
