El-zakzaky's N3.5m Monthly Feeding: Lai Mohammed under fire as OakTv apologises for making video public


OakTV has apologised to the minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed for making public a video disclosing the amount federal government is spending every month to feed the detained leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Ibrahim el- Zakzaky. 

In an apology letter addressed to the minister and dated November 8, the management of the television station said the video was released in error.

It claimed that those involved in the error had been sanctioned.

The letter read, “On Wednesday, November 7, 2018, OakTV made some error (sic) in its reporting regarding a conversation with the Minister of Information.

“This is an error which we regret. All team members involved have been sanctioned and we would do more to tighten our gatekeeping responsibilities.

“We apologise and regret any embarrassment this might have caused the minister.”

However, the Shiite on Thursday said the claim by the Federal Government was nothing but a blatant lie ‘that the government is famous for.’

Spokesman for the IMN, Ibrahim Musa, told one of our correspondents in Kaduna that poor feeding was among other things their leader complained of when he was brought to Kaduna.

He said, “Prior to now, the Sheikh was allowed to buy the food he wanted while in Abuja but at the moment, he was being fed with whatever they(authority) like, not minding his health.”

“The claim is absurd and a blatant lie which the Minister is famous for.

“It only goes to show how some people in this government are looting public funds in the name of Sheikh Zakzaky.

“We challenge the Minister to make public the name of the people collecting such huge sums in our leader’s name.”
