France has described the statement by the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed that it is the financial headquarters of IPOB as false. The government of France has denied reports that it is the financial headquarters of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), according to The Independent.
 
The Federal Government had alleged that the group was being funded from France and that it would take urgent measures to block it.
 
Speaking about the allegation by the FG, the Embassy of France in Nigeria expressed surprise over the statement made by the Minister of Information and Culture  Alhaji Lai Mohammed and challenged him to substantiate his claims that France was the financial  headquarters of the separatist group.
 
The statement read as follows: “The Embassy of France was surprised by the statement made yesterday by the Minister of Information and Culture indicating that the “financial headquarters” of IPOB were in France.

“We don’t have any knowledge of a particular presence of IPOB in France and the Nigerian authorities never got in touch with the Embassy on this point.We stand ready to examine any information which could support this statement.

“Furthermore, we would like to reiterate that France actively cooperates with Nigeria in the field of security and that we strongly support the unity of the country,” the Embassy said.
