Security agents have unmasked the Nigerian suspected to be managing the France account of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB). had earlier reported that the minister of information, Lai Mohammed had said that the group which has been proscribed was being sponsored from France.

The Nation reports that a security source confirmed that some Nigerians in diaspora were sending money to an account in Paris, France and that it was disbursed to IPOB members from there.

A security source who confirmed the development said the account holder has been identified although he did give the person’s name.

A source said: “Security agencies are still conducting more checks before releasing the details on the fellow running the Paris, France account on behalf of IPOB and its leader.

“When the necessary investigation is completed, the findings will be presented to the French government for appropriate action in line with the laws in France.

“These agencies will also trace other accounts in some jurisdictions where funds were remitted into the Paris account.”

A top government source said the proscription of IPOB meant that anybody associating with her was doing so at his or own risk.

The source said: “The proscription order was gazetted by the Federal Government on Thursday. So, there is no going back on our position that the organisation remains illegal.

“Whether IPOB is registered abroad or anywhere is immaterial. The most important thing we have achieved is that the terrorist group can no longer operate in this country.

“The gazette is the climax of the presidential proclamation and the decision of the court on it.

“Any Nigerian or group associating with IPOB is doing so at a greater risk.”

“No government will relate with a terrorist organisation. Certainly, any talk of dialogue is remote.”

Meanwhile, the deputy director of the Radio Biafra, Uche Mefor, released the historical details of the organisation, an arm of IPOB

The explanation comes as the federal government wants the radio station located in London shut for heating up the Nigerian polity and threatening its unity.
