IPOB Funding: Produce Evidence of Your Allegation, France Tells Nigeria

Posted on by admin

The French government reacted angrily to allegations by the Federal Government of Nigeria to the effect that the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indeginous People of Biafra (IPOB) is funded by France.
Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, had accused France and UK of funding the separatist group.
The President Buhari-led government had launched a brutal crackdown on the separatist group last week and declared it a terrorist organisation while South East governors proscribed the organisation.
Nigeria’s air force on Tuesday said it was deploying aircraft to the southeast of the country where unrest related to a campaign for secession has escalated in an area formerly known as Biafra.
The military presence in the southeast has increased in the last few weeks as part of an operation that the military said was part of efforts to crack down on crime, kidnapping and secessionist agitation. The air force deployment marks a further escalation of the operation, which began this month
“The essence of the deployment is to provide the necessary air cover to the ground troops to enhance overall operational cohesion and efficiency,” said Olatokunbo Adesanya, a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) spokesman.
“The request by the Nigerian Army for close air support made the involvement of the NAF inevitable,” he added.
The Embassy of France expressed shock that such allegation was made without any contact with France.
“The Embassy of France was surprised by the statement made yesterday by the Minister of Information and Culture indicating that the “financial headquarters” of IPOB were in France.
“We don’t have any knowledge of a particular presence of IPOB in France and the Nigerian authorities never got in touch with the Embassy on this point. We stand ready to examine any information which could support this statement.

“Furthermore, we would like to reiterate that France actively cooperates with Nigeria in the field of security and that we strongly support the unity of the country,” the Embassy said.

    Let the games begin. Of course, we know that General Buhari tells fabulous lies. The most outrageous, and even treasonous of his lies was his insistence, upon moving into Aso Rock, that Nigeria had been unable to defeat Boko Haram, because some evil people in the Jonathan administration stole all of the money for buying weapons for the Nigerian military.

    Produce once told the entire Nigeria, that he was so broke that he couldn’t afford to buy candidate application forms for the presidency. He told that whopper while rocking a government provided bullet-proof SUV. The government probably paid for the petrol and driver. Buhari is the longest Welfare recipient in Nigeria; a walking contradiction. Filthy rich wicked dictator.

    Augusto Pinochet!!!!!!!!

    Greg, the idiot,

    You are so daft that a former HOS’s entitlements are welfare entitlements that should be criticized. Did Buhari enjoy anything other HOSs did not? You should be ashamed f yourself.

    You are an asswipe-dotard [thanks to the small man]. You are way too retarded for even the most simplest of things Context! Bastard Context! Where’s “Welfare” in what you are responding to? Man! you are too much of a simpleton. You can’t maintain fidelity to the text you are reading…..and you went to law school? Gosh! You are too much of a disgrace. Hang yourself and go to hell. You are liar and follow-follow donkey. Your father Buhari has gone to London…again. Just like him, you have no shame. Run over there and turn yourself into a foot mat for him.
