Terrorism: Nigerians spit fire, demand resignation of Isa Pantami


President Muhammadu Buhari’s communications minister Isa Pantami is under attack by Nigerians on social media after a recent report revealed the United States allegedly placed him under its terrorism watch list.

Although Pantami had denounced any allegiance to Boko Haram, another video showing him expressing support for the global extremist groups — the Taliban and Al-Qaeda has emerged.

“This jihad is an obligation for every single believer, especially in Nigeria, Oh God, give victory to the Taliban and to al-Qaeda (Allahumma’ nṣur Ṭālibān wa-tanẓīm al Qā‘ida),” Pantami said in one of his vicious preachings in the 2000s.

Despite Pantami’s threat to sue some media platforms for reporting that he is on the U.S. terror watchlist for supporting Boko Haram, Nigerians are still worried and have called for his resignation.
