The federal government says the recently-proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is being funded from France.
The minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, however said it would be difficult to block the funding because some innocent Nigerians were receiving money from France for legitimate reasons.
“We have the records; we know IPOB collects money from many people in diaspora,” Mr Mohammed said.
“They collect money from many people in Nigeria, they collect money from some foreign countries.
“Let me tell you, the financial headquarters is in France, we know.
“Can you, as a government, stop people sending money to their parents? You have to block the sources of finance; that is what I said recently.”
