Interior Minister, Lt. General Abdurahman Bello Dambazau has slammed those he called perpetrators of a malicious statement published in an online media alleging plot by the minister to kill Nnamdi Kanu, leader of IPOB.
According to the minister, the attempt by perpetrators of the falsehood are aimed at causing disaffection, disunity and insecurity in Nigeria adding that Nigerians should disregard these antics as government was committed to the good and prosperity of all Nigerians.
A statement signed by Osaigbovo Ehisienmen, Press Secretary to the minister said, “The attention of the Minister of Interior, Lt. General Abdurahman Danbazau has been drawn to a fabricated, malicious, ridiculous and false report posted on Linda Ikeji’s blog and other social media platforms, in which the minister is falsely accused of threatening to kill Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of IPOB.
The Statement which reads in part, “If we can imprison Awolowo, Killed Ken Saro Wiwa, murdered Abiola and his wife without Nigeria breaking apart, we are moving to kill Nnamdi Kanu” attributed to the interior minister is untrue and unfortunate because the perpetrators of the falsehood and gross innuendoes ought to know that Gen Dambazau, a former Chief of Army Staff and a renown, seasoned security expert with over 30 years PhD degree in criminology cannot conceive such ideas, nor take the credit for such.
“It will also interest the perpetrators on this ungodly accusation to note that Dambazau is a fellow at Harvard University, senior fellow at center for peace, democracy and development at university of Massachusetts and Chairman, University Advancement Center, University of Ibadan.
“He is also a fellow and member, board of trustees, society for peace studies and practice and also visiting professor, strategic studies, Igbinedion University, Okda, Edo State, among others.
“I therefore admonish the authors of this misleading publication to juxtapose the above mentioned intellectual prowess of Gen Dambazau (RTD) with his untainted military record while in service and see if they will not come to repentance for laying such weighty allegation against the interior minister.
“The perpetrators of the malicious statement are out to cause disaffection, disunity and insecurity while creating public unrest detrimental to the well-being of Nigerians and other foreign nationals in the country.
“He therefore called on Nigerians to disregard their antics as government is committed to the good and prosperity of every Nigerian.”
