Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami has denied U.S. Terror Watch List.
The minster on his Twitter handle on Monday debunked the affinity he reportedly shared with Boko Haram.
As an Islamic scholar, he was alleged to have mentored the founder of the militant Islamist group who was killed in the North-East in 2009.
In his reaction, he said his lectures condemning the doctrines and all other evil people have been available for over 15 years.
“My lectures against the doctrines and all other evil people have been available for over 15 years, including debates that endangered my life against many criminals in Nigeria.
“If you can’t understand Hausa, get an objective Hausa speaker to translate for you objectively,” he wrote.
TOS News gathered that many of the leading platforms that reported the news have recanted the report and apologized to the Minister.
