Ejimakor To FG: IPOB Not Funded Through Sports Betting

 

 

In response to rumours that the Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB, are financed via sports betting and crowdsourcing, Aloy Ejimakor, the principal attorney for IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, responded on Saturday. Such allegations, in his opinion, are absurd and untrue. The Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) has disclosed that terrorist groups in Nigeria, including Boko Haram, ISWAP, IPOB, bandits, and others, are financed via international crowdfunding, online transactions, and sports betting.

 

In a newsletter, the NFIU disclosed how funds were received by IPOB and Eastern Security Network, or ESN, through affiliates in 22 countries that have registered at least 27 entities under the group’s name. The financial unit reported that six of the registrations were made in the UK and seven in the US, and that more than $160,000 that IPOB had raised through crowdsourcing was directed towards media, broadcasting, and transmission companies in Bulgaria, South Africa, and the UK.

Condemning the report, Ejimakor said somebody was fishing in troubled waters.

 

Posting on X, he wrote: “It’s incredible to claim that the IPOB (which is LEGAL globally) is funded through sports-betting & crowd-funding. The sports-betting part is false & laughable.

 

“The crowd-funding part sounds like #GoFundMe which has never happened. Someone is fishing in troubled waters. #FreeMNK”
