AGF: Financial links exist between Sunday Igboho, terrorism financier

A former Assistant Director with the Department of State Services, Dennis Amachree, on Friday, said Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, should have joined the South-West Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun.

The Nigerian government said on Friday that its investigation has established a link between Sunday Adeyemo and a suspected financier of terrorism.

The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, said this in a Friday statement.

Mr Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho, is among the thousands of Yoruba people pushing for an independent country for the Yorubas. The separatists have repeatedly said they were employing only peaceful means to achieve their goals.

Mr Malami said the government’s findings show that a company controlled by Mr Adeyemo transferred N12.75 million to another controlled by Abdullahi Usman, who is suspected of financing terrorism in Nigeria.
