Presidency Reacts To News Of Isa Pantami On US Terror Watch-List:

The presidency has described as untrue reports going about that the United States government has placed Nigeria’s Minister of Communications, Isa Pantami on terror watch-list.

We reported earlier that Isa Pantami has been allegedly placed on the US watch-list over an alleged link with the dreaded Boko Haram leader. It was alleged in the report that the Nigerian minister is an ally of the late Mohammed Yusuf, the late leader of Boko Haram.

It was also alleged that Isa Pantami had ties with Abu Quata­da al Falasimi and other Al-Qaeda leaders whom he revered and spoke highly of.

However, reacting to the reports on Monday morning, April 12, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, described the claims as fake news.

The presidential aide insisted that the Minister has never been on any US watchlist.
