Human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju, has attacked the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Federation, Abubakar Malamu, for linking Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho to terrorism.
Malami in a statement released on Friday had said Igboho was linked to a Boko Haram financier, Abubakar Muhammad Surajo.
The minister stated this in a statement titled, “Investigation Reports On Acts Of Terrorism And Allied Offences Perpetrated By Nnamdi Kanu And Report On the Sponsors And Financiers Of Sunday Igboho And Associates.”
He further stated, “Investigation reveals that Adesun International Concept Ltd (belonging to Igboho) transferred the sum of twelve million seven hundred and fifty thousand naira (N12, 750,000) to Abbal Bako & Sons.”
“It might be recalled that Abbal Bako & Sons and its promoter Abdullahi Umar Usman are suspects in the on-going Joint Terrorist Financing Investigation. Abdullahi Umar Usman is by way of financial transaction connected to SURAJO ABUBAKAR MUHAMMAD (who was sentenced to life imprisonment in UAE on charges of financing terrorism [Boko Haram]).”
“This report shows the nexus between separatists’ agitation, terrorism financing and disruptions of peace in the country. The report found connections of financial transaction between Adesun International Concept Ltd (belonging to Igboho) and some construction companies and businesses among others.”
Adeyanju in reaction to Malami’s statement said the minister should be selling recharge cards in Kebbi.
He wrote, “AGF Malami says Sunday Igboho may be linked to terrorism financing because he did a N12m transfer to a Bureau De Change.”
“This man should be selling recharge card in Kebbi.”
