The Chinese Government has denied funding militants to access Nigerian mining sites, noting strongly that it will never be involved in any form of terrorism financing.
In a statement on Monday, the Chinese Embassy in Nigeria described a report by The Times of the United Kingdom insinuating terrorism financing in Nigeria by the Chinese Government as totally irresponsible.
The report dated April 15, 2023 and titled, ‘Chinese ‘bribed Nigerian militants for access to vast mineral reserves’ claimed that “Beijing could be indirectly funding terror” in Nigeria.
However, the Chinese Embassy said the report is “based on unverified, unclear and unproven information, to which we have to express our strong dissatisfaction and objection”.
