President Muhammadu Buhari has claimed that a serving member of the National Assembly, has been identified as part of sponsors of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and the Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho.
Buhari stated this while addressing the nation on Friday morning to mark its 61st Independence Day.
According to him, his government was after the financiers, saying the alleged sponsors have abandoned their leadership responsibilities for what he termed as selfish gain.
Buhari said, “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 youth to conduct criminal acts that sometimes lead to unfortunate and unnecessary loss of lives and property.”
