The Federal Government says about 43 accounts in nine different banks belonging to embattled Yoruba Nation activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Igboho Oosha have been uncovered.
It also said the alleged major sponsor of Igboho has been discovered to be a serving federal lawmaker in Abuja.
Disclosing this at a press conference in Abuja on Friday, Malam Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of The Federation And Minister of Justice, said the development was uncovered by a committee set up by the Federal Government to unravel how the fugitive got monies to sponsor the Yoruba nation agitation.
He said: “The Federal Government has received the report on financers of Adeniyi Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho.
“The report stated that Sunday Igboho is a Director and signatory to Adesun International Concept Limited which was registered on 23rd April 2010.
“Adesun International Concept Limited also has Oladele Oyetunji and Aderopo Adeyemo as Directors. Sunday Igboho is linked to 43 bank accounts in nine banks.
“The major financier of the fugitive and separatists was found to be a federal lawmaker in the National Assembly. A total sum of N127, 145,000.00 was received by Igboho from his financiers between 22nd October 2013 and 28th September 2020 through Adesun International Concept Ltd accounts.
“A total N273,198,200.00 transaction outflows were recorded from Sunday Igboho’s account between 15th March 2013 and 11 March 2021.
“Investigation reveals that Adesun International Concept Ltd (belonging to Igboho) transferred the sum of twelve million seven hundred and fifty thousand naira (N12,750,000) to Abbal Bako & Sons.”
