Security agents have identified the Nigerian suspected to be operating the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Paris, France, it was learnt at the weekend.
The government last week said money was being raised from some Nigerians in the diaspora to fund IPOB.
Funds were also raised from events, including a football tournament organised in Senegal, for the banned organisation.
Funds raised from the diaspora Nigerians’ donation and other sources are remitted to an account in Paris from where it is disbursed for the organisation’s activities.
The account holder was not named at the weekend.
The proscription of IPOB has been sealed with the Federal Government’s gazette of its ban. This puts to rest speculations of a reversal of the decision as a result of a political solution.
With this, the group ceases to exist by the nation’s law and the government might have ruled out dialogue with Kanu.
