Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has described the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, as a cold blooded killer and terrorist.
Naija News reports that FFK was reacting to claims that the Buhari’s minister expressed happeness with the killing of infidels.
Pantami has been in the news for the wrong reason of recents after video emerged of the minister expressing support for terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode stated that he will refuse to believe the minister said all that until he sees evidence.
He wrote: “I refuse to believe that he said this. If he did then he is nothing but a cold-blooded killer & terrorist who deserves to face the full wrath of the law. If he didn’t may God judge those that have falsely accused him.
“Until I see the evidence I refuse to believe he said it. Show me the evidence and I will take it up from there.
“Whichever way, the gates of hell shall not prevail against the Church.”
The minister said this in three audio recordings of his teachings in the 2000s, when he condemned deadly operations of the then Al Qaeda and Taliban elements who were on a campaign to obliterate the West and conquer other parts of the world.
The minister said; “We are all happy whenever unbelievers are being killed,” Mr Pantami said. “But the Sharia does not allow us to kill them without a reason.”
“Our zeal (hamasa) should not take precedence over our obedience to the sacred law,” he added.
Pantami in his submission while responding to audience questions about his views on the then leader of the terrorist group, Osama Bin Laden, he still consider the leader of the extremists a better Muslim faithful to himself.
Recall that Bin Laden was responsible for bringing down the World Trade Centre in an attack that claimed over 3,000 lives in 2001.
