A former U.S. commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), a NATO-led security mission in Afghanistan, was the organizer of the July 15 military coup attempt in Turkey, sources said.
According to yenisafak, General John F. Campbell managed more than $2 billion money transactions via UBA Bank in Nigeria by using CIA links to distribute among the pro-coup military personnel in Turkey.
The ongoing investigation unveiled that Campbell had paid at least two secret visits to Turkey since May, until the day of the coup attempt.
The Nigeria branch of the United Bank of Africa (UBA) was said to be the main base for the last six-months of money transactions for the coup plotters.
“Millions of dollars of money has been transferred from Nigeria to Turkey by a group of CIA personnel”, yenisafak said.
“The money, which has been distributed to an 80-person special team of the CIA, was used to convince pro-coup generals.
“More than 2 billion dollars were distributed during the process leading to the coup.
“After taking money from their bank accounts, the CIA team hand delivered it to the terrorists under the military dresses”, according to report.
A spokesman of UBA, Nigerian branch has told TheCable the report is false and that the bank would issue a statement on Tuesday (today) to deny the allegations.
