RE: Disquiet As America Places Nigerian Minister On Watchlist
Our attention has been drawn to the story with the above title, published in the Sunday Independent newspaper of April 11, 2021.
We have since realized that the information contained in the story has not been verified to be true.
The Minister mentioned in the story, Alhaji Isa Ali Ibrahim, also known as Sheikh Pantami, is not known to be on American Terror Watch List, nor is he linked to terror organisations.
We regret and sincerely apologise for the embarrassment our story has caused the Honourable Minister whom we hold in high regard.
