The controversy surrounding the alleged link of the minister of communications and digital economy, Ibrahim Isa Pantami to Boko Haram and other terrorist organizations around the world may have opened a new vista as the FBI and US government has now placed the minister on the terrorism watch list.

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation FBI and the US government has reacted to the alleged placement of minister Pantami on a terror watch list.

The FBI, in its response to the request sent to it by Leadership newspaper, said: “Consistent with our standard posture, we can neither confirm nor deny whether an individual is on the watch list.”

In a short statement seen by Legit.ng on Monday, April 13, and published on its Twitter page, the Independent Newspapers Nigeria apologised to Pantami.

Part of the statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to the story with the above title, published in the Sunday Independent newspaper of April 11, 2021. “We have since realized that the information contained in the story has not been verified to be true.

“The minister mentioned in the story, Alhaji Isa Ali Ibrahim, also known as Sheikh Pantami, is not known to be on American Terror Watch List, nor is he linked to terror organisations.

“We regret and sincerely apologize for the embarrassment our story has caused the honorable minister whom we hold in high regard.”
