President Buhari wants to know how the Lebanese terrorist got Nigerian visa

A full investigation has been ordered by the Federal Government into how a high profile Lebanese terrorist, Ahmad al-Assir, was given Nigerian visa.

Ahmad al-Assir, a radical Muslim cleric, was recently arrested by Lebanese authorities as he attempted to leave Lebanon for Nigeria.

He was arrested while attempting to travel with a fake Palestinian passport and a valid Nigerian visa at Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport on Saturday, August 15, in Lebanon.

An official of the Nigerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs told Vanguard that President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to investigate how al-Assir, a wanted terrorist was issued a Nigerian visa.

An official of the ministry was quoted to have said:

“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.”

“We are amazed that such a high profile terrorist would evade our radar. This is a major breach that cannot be allowed to go without investigation.

“This is more so that the Boko Haram sect has pledged allegiance to Islamic State terrorists. There is no way our embassy officials will allow such laxity in their areas of operation. The president is justifiably furious about it.”
