President Muhammadu Buhari has taken the battle to annihilate members of the Independent Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) to the global scene. He pleaded with Nigeria’s  international partners, especially the United States (U.S.) and the United Kingdom (UK) to bar the group from the international financial network.

In an interview transcript from Bloomberg released yesterday, President Buhari defended the security measures put in place by his administration, saying they have worked well.

He urged the international allies to take additional to label IPOB – as a terrorist organisation.

The President said: “Their leadership enjoys safe haven in the West, broadcasting hate speech into Nigeria from London, spending millions lobbying members of the U.S. Congress and freely using international financial networks to arm agitators on the ground. This must stop.
