The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has announced the closure of its bank account domiciled in the United States of America.
The account was allegedly closed over suspected fraudulent activities.
According to a statement signed by IPOB’s Head of Directorate, Chika Edoziem the account served as a platform for members of the secessionist organisation to pay their monthly contributions.
The statement read, “That the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra worldwide, Nnamdi Kanu, authorised the opening of the IPOB USA, families were instructed to pay in their monthly contributions,”
“That this same USA national account was also designated by our leader as the account for ESN (Eastern Security Network) worldwide contributions.
“Following a report to the bank by yet-to-be identified persons that this account is fraudulent, the bank requested that the account be closed.”
Meanwhile, Edoziem said another account has been opened to serve the same purpose.
Recall that the leader of the secessionist organisation Nnamdi Kanu was recently re-arrested for the continuation of his trial.
