I know nothing about the Israel threat- Lai Mohammed Claims
Briefing State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed vehemently denied the allege threat he made to the Israel nation, if the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu is not released to Nigeria.
“I was in London when I heard the story about Nnamdi Kanu surfacing in Israel. I was not in a position to make any statement. But before I knew it, within a few hours, I saw my picture with a story saying that I had actually given Israel ultimatum to return Nnamdi Kanu otherwise, we will send them missiles. “I just laughed. It speaks to what we are talking about fake news because, it is probably the biggest threat in the run-up to the elections. Having said that, I have nothing more to add to the issue of Nnamdi Kanu. At the appropriate time, the various authorities will make a statement about the issue of Kanu.
He further said that, Nnamdi Kanu appearance had justified the fact that the government knows nothing about his whereabouts has claimed my his colleagues.
“But this has proven that all along when Kanu disappeared and the mob was asking the Nigerian army to account for the whereabouts of Kanu; I kept saying that Kanu knows where he is. He was not in the custody of the Federal Government. We have been vindicated today. Any other statement will be made in due course.”
