Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has questioned the claim by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami that he was being sponsored by a National Assembly member.
It has beenee had reported that the Minister, on Friday during a press conference in Abuja stated that the secessionist has 43 accounts in different banks, stressing that some financers of Igboho have consistently deposited funds in the accounts.
Reacting to the claim, Ighoho, in a statement by his counsel, Chief Yomi Aliu said he is a businessman and not a terrorist. He also challenged Malami to mention the particular lawmaker he claimed to be his major financer.
The statement reads in part, “The picture the AGF wanted to paint is that our client is being financed by Abdullah Umar, allegedly involved in terrorist financing. Who is now financing who?
“Again, Chief Adeyemo is a car dealer trading in the name of Adesun International Concept Ltd. Does it mean that anybody buying a car from him or selling a car to him is a terrorist?
“I challenge the Hon AGF to mention the lawmaker that sent money to Chief Sunday Adeyemo for terrorist act whether he would not be damnified in exemplary damages for defamation”.
