Kayode Berates Pantami Describes him as beast
Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has berated Nigeria’s Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, over comments credited to him in the past.
Naija News reports that Pantami had once revealed how joyful he used to feel with the killing of those he considered infidels.
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.
