The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has debunked news making waves that he had threatened to attack Isreal if they fail to repatraite Nnamdi Kanu.
Lai Mohammed who was away in London when the Supreme Leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu was sighted, said he was surprised when within a few hours, he saw his picture with a story saying that he had actually given Israel an ultimatum to return Nnamdi Kanu otherwise, we will send them missiles.
Speaking to state house correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting today October 24th, Lai Mohammed said
“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 an ultimatum to return Nnamdi Kanu otherwise, we will send them missiles. I just laughed.
It speaks to what we are talking about the 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”.
Reports of Lai Mohammed making the threat was rife on social media in the last few days after Kanu who had gone missing since last year September, resurfaced online.
