The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has announced that their bank account in the United States has been closed.

The account acted as a “global” venue for IPOB members to send their monthly donations, according to a statement made on Thursday by Chika Edoziem, IPOB’s head of directorate.

IPOB canceled the account after the bank informed it that certain “yet to be named parties” accused it of fraudulently running the account, according to Edoziem.

He said that a new account has been created for the same reason, and that members should use the new platform.

“That the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra worldwide, Nnamdi Kanu, authorised the opening of the IPOB USA, families were instructed to pay in their monthly contributions,” the statement reads.

“That this same USA national account was also designated by our leader as the account for ESN worldwide contributions.

“Following a report to the bank by yet to be identified persons that this account is fraudulent, the bank requested that the account be closed.”

IPOB was labeled a terrorist organization by a federal high court in Abuja in 2017, which proscribed it on the government’s request.

Its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is facing treasonous felony charges in connection with his campaign for a “Republic of Biafra.”

He is being held in the custody of the Department of State Services until his trial resumes on July 26.
