Yenisafak, a Turkish newspaper, has alleged that the United Bank of Africa (UBA) played a key role in the distribution of funds for the facilitation of the failed coup.

But a spokesman for UBA told TheCable the report is false and that the bank would issue a statement on Tuesday to deny the allegations.

John F. Campbell, a general in the US Army, is alleged to have orchestrated the military coup attempt in Turkey, which took place on July 15, but he has described the allegations as “ridiculous”.

CIA operatives were said to have transferred millions of dollars from Nigeria to Turkey within six months.

The funds, which were relayed by an “80-person special team of the CIA”, was used to win over the generals predisposed to the coup, led by Campbell, former U.S. commander of a NATO-led security mission in Afghanistan, the newspaper alleged.

In total, “over $2 billion dollars were distributed during the process leading to the coup”, the report said.

The information was reportedly obtained from sources close to ongoing legal process of detainees in the government’s custody.

Campbell was said to have “organized and managed the soldiers behind the attempted coup”.

“Campbell also 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. After taking money from their bank accounts, the CIA team hand delivered it to the terrorists under the military dresses,” it said.

The failed coup plot was organized by the Fethullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) led by cleric Fethullah Gülen who’s on self-exile in America.

The report also inferred that American intelligence, military and other institutions “supported the FETO leader Gülen and his gangs for the military coup”.

While the coup shook Turkey, the joint efforts of the country’s citizens, politicians, media and police forces averted the potential forceful takeover of the government.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoga on Monday ordered the detention of 42 journalists, a post-coup crackdown which has affected more than 60,000 people in the European country.

Several military bosses, soldiers, police, judges and civil servants have been arrested in the past two weeks.
