The Yoruba activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has denied the allegation leveled against him by the Federal Government linking him with sponsoring of terrorism, saying he is a businessman.
Speaking through his lead counsel, Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), Igboho said they are just looking for a way to give dog a bad name just to hang him.
According to a statement signed by Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN) stated that “Our attention has been drawn to a text press conference by the Hon Attorney General and Minister of Finance wherein he fruitlessly tried to paint our client and those patronising his car trade as terrorists and/or financiers of terrorists.
“I have gone through the text. Sunday was alleged to have transferred the sum of #12.7m to Abbal Bako & Sons owned by Abdullahi Umar.
“Transferring money to bureau de change to buy dollars is what is done by every businessman of our client’s calibre. Thank God that his passports and various bills of ladings were carted away by DSS during the ungodly invasion of 1st July, 2021.
“Thus, so far there is no evidence of receipt of money from Abbal Bako & Sons or Abdullahi Umar going by the text conference. What the Hon AGF stated are mere conjectures. Not hard fact. Our client according to him paid Umar and NOT vice versa thus believing what the Honourable Attorney General of Federation earlier said that Chief Sunday Adeyemo is being financed by people.”
