IPOB: CBN Gov. doesn’t have money to fund us.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have said the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and its governor, Godwin Emefiele, do not have the money to fund their activities.
IPOB accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of plotting to humiliate Emefiele out of office by making such claims. NewsReport gathered.
Emma Powerful, IPOB’s spokesman, made the remark while denying DSS claims that Emefiele funded the separatist group.
The report attributed to the DSS was described as false by Powerful.
A statement by Powerful said Emefiele does not have the money to fund IPOB because the group is bigger than him.
The statement reads partly: “The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by the indefatigable liberator, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the childish and fabricated lies from the Nigeria Secret Police, Department of State Services (DSS), accusing Godwin Emefele, the Central Bank of Nigeria Governor (CBN), of funding the great movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).”
“For record’s sake, IPOB doesn’t know the person called Godwin Emefele. We just know that he is the man in charge of the corrupt financial institution they call the CBN.
Godwin Emefele doesn’t have money to finance IPOB because it is bigger than him and his government entities, including the DSS, making such spurious, idiotic, and insulting allegations.
Powerful said IPOB was being funded by its members across the world.
“The IPOB movement is being financed and sponsored by its members scattered all over the world through our free-will financial support.
“DSS can’t claim ignorance of such sources of funding for IPOB because they have the intelligence unless they want to tell the world that they are daft,” he added.
