Babafemi Ojudu, president Buhari’s special adviser on Political Matters, has revealed that the northern youths, who gave the October 1 quit notice to Igbo resident in the region were sponsored.
Ojudu revealed this in Abuja over the weekend during a meeting with regional youth leaders, organised by the Office of the Special Assistant to the President on Youth and Student Affairs.
According to Ojudu, “only God knows how much some elites, who hid behind the curtains, paid those who made that declaration in Kaduna,” he said.
“Okay, if I don’t want to be importing things from Singapore, I can use this idea of Biafra to make money and some people are making huge money from it.
“Those, who were agitating and calling for Biafra before, are now singing another tune after building their palaces,’’ Ojudu said.
