FEDERAL Government has alleged that Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Igboho, has a link with a Boko Haram sponsor, Surajo Muhammad who was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment in United Arab Emirates on account of financing terrorism.
Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, stated this while announcing the findings of a 24 member Presidential committee set up to investigate separatist activities of Igboho and leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
Mallami said the report revealed that Igboho had received over N127 million between October 2013 and September 2020 from different financiers, which he didn’t disclose.
“The report revealed that Sunday Igboho is a Director and signatory to Adesun International Concept Limited registered on April 23, 2010. Adesun International Concept Limited also has Oladele Oyetunji and Aderopo Adeyemo as directors. Sunday Igboho is linked to 43 bank accounts in nine banks.
“The major financier of the fugitive and separatists was found to be a federal lawmaker in the National Assembly. A total sum of N127, 145,000 was received by Igboho from his financiers between October 22, 2013, and September 28, 2020, through Adesun International Concept Ltd accounts.
“A total sum of N273,198,200 transaction outflows was recorded from Sunday Igboho’s account between March 15, 2013, and March 11, 2021. Investigation reveals that Adesun International Concept Ltd (belonging to Igboho) transferred the sum of N12, 750,000 to Abbal Bako & Sons,” Malami stated.
The AGF said the Federal Government is determined to work with the report to legally prosecute those found guilty.
“The Federal Government will do the needful, within the context of the legal provisions, in ensuring that the matter is given the deserved attention and those found guilty will be made to face the wrath of the law,” Malami stated.
