The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) bank account domiciled in the United States has reportedly been closed down.
Chika Edoziem, IPOB head of directorate said the account which served as a “worldwide” platform for members of the group to pay their monthly contributions, was closed down after it received a report from the bank that some yet to be identified persons accused it of fraudulently operating the account.
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 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.”
Edoziem said another account has been opened to serve the same purpose.
