Jonathan Knows About Boko Haram Financier in CBN – Soyinka
The controversy over alleged sponsors of Boko Haram took a twist yesterday when Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka said information about a suspected financier of the terror group within the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was passed to President Goodluck Jonathan.
Soyinka also said he worked “in the background” with Australian negotiator Stephen Davis during the Niger Delta militancy crisis, and warned against dismissing his claims on those allegedly sponsoring Boko Haram.
In a statement by Soyinka titled, The wages of impunity, he was appalled by government’s treatment of people linked with the Islamist group with kid gloves.
Soyinka said: “Finally, Stephen Davis also mentioned a Boko Haram financier within the Nigerian Central Bank. Independently we are able to give backing to that claim, even to the extent of naming the individual. In the process of our enquiries, we solicited the help of a foreign embassy whose government, we learnt, was actually on the same trail, thanks to its independent investigation into some money laundering that involved the Central Bank.
“That name, we confidently learnt, has also been passed on to President Jonathan. When he is ready to abandon his accommodating policy towards the implicated, even the criminalized, an attitude that owes so much to re-election desperation, when he moves from a passive `letting the law to take its course’ to galvanizing the law to take its course, we shall gladly supply that name”.
