The Nigerian leader said the recent arrest of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho – two separatists demanding the creation of independent countries out of Nigeria – reveals high-profile financiers including the lawmaker.

Buhari said, “Nigeria is for all of us. Its unity is not negotiable. And its ultimate success can only be achieved if we all come together with a common goal of having peace and prosperity for our nation.

“We shall continue to work on dialogue based solutions to address legitimate grievances. But we remain ready to take decisive actions against secessionist agitators and their sponsors who threaten our national security.

“The recent arrests of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Adeyemo, and the ongoing investigations being conducted have revealed certain high-profile financiers behind these individuals.

“We are vigorously pursuing these financiers including one identified as a serving member of the national assembly.”

He, however, did not name the lawmaker.
