Immediate past Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Chairman, Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Hon. Kingsley Kuku, has cried out over surreptitious moves to link him with terrorist acts and stockpiling of arms in the country.
Kuku in a press release, yesterday, accused some desperate unnamed ‘Hawks’ of conspiring with some security agencies to frame him up as sponsoring terrorism with a view to preparing the grounds to arrest him on arrival in Nigeria.
Kuku has been abroad to seek medical attention over a broken knee, coinciding with his invitation by the EFCC to answer to charges bordering on the management of the resources of the PAP.
He is preparing to return to Nigeria any moment from now.
He said that the alarm became necessary following an online media report by a spectral Kano-based group, National Security Watchdog, which claimed that “there was incontrovertible evidence linking (me) to terrorist acts and illegal stockpiling of arms.”
The group had called on the Attorney-General of the Federation to initiate proceedings for Kuku’s extradition to face terrorism charges.
He said: “The claim by this group must not be taken lightly by either the government or well-meaning Nigerians.’’
