August 19, 2015 – Nigerian Embassy In Lebanon Issues Visa To ISIS Leader Wanted Terrorist, Buhari Orders Probe
President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered a full probe of the Nigerian embassy in Lebanon for issuing visa to a wanted terrorist, Ahmad al-Assir arrested while fleeing into Nigeria.
A Presidency source revealed to Vanguard yesterday that Buhari has directed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to investigate the issuance of the visa.
“The reported arrest of the wanted terrorist is a huge embarrassment to Nigeria and the President has directed that the matter should be investigated. The embassy in Lebanon has been directed to furnish the ministry with details of how the man got the visa. The National Intelligence Agency Officer has been directed to provide details of what happened” the Presidency source said.
Ahmad Al Assir avoided arrest with 70s makeover until he was caught at an airport in Lebanon last week while trying to escape into Nigeria.
The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist sect was planning to make him an Emir in Lebanon during the time of his arrest.
Thank God the monster didn’t enter Nigeria.
