MURIC which waved aside reports that it’s receiving N200,000 from Islamic State for West Africa Province (ISWAP), challenged the federal government to probe the allegations.

MURIC said; “We remain committed to the unity and indivisibility of Nigeria,” the organization director said.

“The motto of MURIC is ‘dialogue, not violence’. So how can we descend so low as to collect money from terrorists? Such lies will not fly.

“The terrorists themselves know that we can never support them. How can they give us money? The allegation is dead on arrival,” the group added.
