The embattled Minister for Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami has cried that doctored videos about him made by his detractors will soon flood the internet.
He made this view known through his media aide, Uwa Suleiman. He said that the next stage is to massively bring out the videos so as to discredit him in the eyes of Nigerians.
There have been calls by a large section of Nigerians for him to resign or be fired by President Muhammadu Buhari though he renounced his earlier statements made in support of Al Qaeda and the Taliban opining that he made them in his youth out of immaturity.
The statement read: “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 Minister said that he was duty bound to warn the public in advance about this plot and warned the perpetrators to desist from it as there will be dire consequences.
