Insecurity: Terrorists’ threat to kidnap Buhari is laughable - Lai Mohammed

Lai Mohammed Lai Mohammed

Information minister, Lai Mohammed, has stated that threats by some terrorists to abduct President Muhammadu Buhari is laughable.

He made this known during a speech after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting in Abuja on Wednesday, July 27, 2022.

“As to those who have issued threats to Mr President, I think it is more of propaganda than anything, it is laughable.

“I want to reassure you that the government is up to the task of ensuring security. Security challenges will come anywhere in the world. The important thing is the fact that you do not lose focus and you continue to work assiduously to overcome it.

“I want to assure you, we are going to overcome,” he said.

A video was released online on July 24, 2022.

In the video, some terrorists threatened to kidnap president Buhari and the Kaduna state governor, Nasir el-Rufai.
