Lai Mohammed

Lai Mohammed has said that it costs the Federal Government ₦3.5 million to feed the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky every month.

The Minister of Information said this at a press briefing together with the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, and the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

“These are the facts,” Mohammed said, although he asked that he not be quoted.

It costs the government about ₦3.5 million every month to feed him.

Honestly, don’t quote me, but these are the facts.

So please. We don’t want to inflame passion. The issue is a very sensitive matter. But that is the situation. The Islamic Movement of Nigeria are a different kettle of fish.

Zakzaky has remained in police custody since his arrest in 2015, although his bail had been ordered in 2016.

A bail application of his was also denied this week, the judge citing the absence of his medical report.

    Men see contract. kai. Some people are Killing it. Whoever approved that contract is a grand thief. Here is my suggestion- send Zak Zaky home if there is absolutely no way to feed one mouth with 50-100k monthly. Useless pple\

    Na wa o. This is very ridiculous. if the federal government can feed a suspect with 1.5m.n. so why is it so difficult for them to 30,000 as the minimum wage? Please stop fooling us.
