The Federal Government has identified France and the Diaspora as the sources of funding for the activities of the banned the Independent Peoples Of Biafra (IPOB). This is coming as President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the group’s proscription as had had previously been announced by the Defence Headquarters (DHQ).
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, disclosed these while briefing State House correspondents on the outcome of the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Abuja on Wednesday.

“Let me tell you, the financial headquarters is in France. We know but you see, can you as a government stop sending money to your parents? You have to block the sources of finance. That is what I said recently.
“It is incontrovertible that some people in diaspora contribute money to IPOB. Where does he get his money from? We know this as a fact.
