The Presidency has said that it will soon expose Nigerians who are transferring money to members of the outlawed Boko Haram from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“And I tell you that by the time we finish this investigation, the shocking details will surprise many Nigerians,” Senior Special Assistant To The President On Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu said on a Channels Television programme today, March 31.
According to him, some Bureau De Change operators have been facilitating transfer of money to terrorists and that some people have been arrested in connection with the incident.
“Bureaus de change (operators) are facilitating money to terrorists. We have already worked with the UAE. Convictions have been achieved of Nigerians who are transferring money to Boko Haram terrorists and this also happens domestically.”
Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, who doubles as Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, had said earlier that there is a link between kidnapping, banditry and terrorism.
