The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, on Wednesday denied that he gave Israel ultimatum, over the return of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to Nigeria.
Kanu, who resurfaced in Israel at the weekend, has threatened to unleash hell on Nigerians.
Briefing State House correspondents, Lai Mohammed said: “I was in London when I heard the story about Nnamdi Kanu surfacing in Israel. I was not in a position to make any statement.
“But before I knew it, within a few hours, I saw my picture with a story saying that I had actually given Israel ultimatum to return Nnamdi Kanu otherwise, we will send them missiles.
“I just laughed. It speaks to what we are talking about fake news because it is probably the biggest threat in the run-up to the elections.
“Having said that I have nothing more to add, to the issue of Nnamdi Kanu.”
