President Muhammadu_Buhari,

Individuals financing terrorism seeking to remain relevant in Nigeria,” says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari said on Friday that individuals financing  terrorism in various parts of the country are doing so to remain relevant.
The president stated this  in an interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) .
Buhari stated this while  responding to aquestion on  alleged financiers of terrorism, a number of whom  the  administration claimed have been apprehended and would soon be charged to court.

The President reiterated that most of them are wealthy individuals who are no longer relevant in government.
” Their motive is that they are made irrelevant and they want to use their resources they accumulated over the years to prove that they are still around and the administration will deal with them. Anybody caught will be dealt with,”he stated.
About 400 operators of businesses mostly bureau de change  were arrested for allegedly financing Boko Haram terrorists, according to the Attorney general of the Federation and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami (SAN).
 But so far no one has been convicted in Court of competent jurisdiction  for financing the terrorism group  that have racked havoc in the country since 2009.
