The embattled Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has cried out that some of his detractors are planning to release some doctored videos that will tarnish his image.
The Minister has been called by many to resign after old videos of him showing support for terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda, surfaced online recently, though he has since recanted his support for the groups, saying he made them as an immature teenager.
However, in a statement released by his media aide, Uwa Suleiman, the Minister said;
“We are in receipt of credible intelligence that the same forces, who have been championing a well-coordinated and richly funded campaign against Pantami, are now unto the next stage of their diabolic project.
This time round, the forces of evil are shopping for willing partners as well as their usual avenues to release doctored videos purporting to show the minister in an alleged compromising condition as a way of creating injury on his image.
We are least surprised by this recent move which is a clear intensification of their desperation, having failed in their assault on the personality of the minister, despite their previous efforts.”
The statement further adds that the Minister would not sit idly to see his reputation as a community leader, Islamic scholar and public servant being muddled in the mud by ”paid agents.”
