The Presidency says it has uncovered the Nigerians who are transferring money to Boko Haram terrorists from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Malam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant To The President On Media and Publicity, disclosed this when he featured on a Channels Television programme.
The Presidential spokesman, who said some Bureau De Change operators were facilitating transfer of money to terrorists, added that Nigerians will be shocked when details of the investigation are revealed.
“Bureaus de change are facilitating money to terrorists. We have already worked with the UAE,” he said.
“Convictions have been achieved of Nigerians who are transferring money to Boko Haram terrorists and this also happens domestically. And I tell you that by the time we finish this investigation, the shocking details will surprise many Nigerians.”
Earlier in the week, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, who is the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, had said there is a link between kidnapping, banditry and terrorism.
