Nigerian government not holding hundreds in secret facilities – Lai Mohammed | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has described the claim by Amnesty International (AI) that hundreds of people are being held in secret detention facilities in Nigeria as untrue.

Mohammed stated this yesterday in a swift reaction to the said AI’s report.

According to him, if there were such facilities, he would be aware of such.

The Minister told journalists: “I should know if such a thing exists. This government is not in the least repressive, this government is tolerant of all views.

“It is a big shame if an organisation like Amnesty International will cook up this kind of story.

"I should know. Who are the dissidents that are being kept in an unknown place? I should know. I face a lot of criticism, I face a lot of attack. Who are the dissidents that are being detained there? It is certainly untrue, let them come out with facts and should stop relying on hear-say and some so-called NGOs.

"When they have this kind of story, they should contact the government before they go out to smear the name of the country. They should know that at Amnesty International, people take them seriously.”
