I got phone-call from militant – Kachikwu

Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Mr. Ibe Kachikwu, on Tuesday said he once prevailed on a militant, who called him on phone and threatened to blow up oil pipelines.

Kachikwu disclosed this at the second edition of nation-wide town-hall meetings organised by the minister of information and culture, Alh. Lai Muhammed in Kaduna State.

Kachikwu, who was one of the five ministers that include, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, minister for solid minerals, Adebayo Shittu, minister for communication, and minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Hajia Zainab Ahmed that gave accounts of their stewardships at the town-hall meeting said he once had an interesting encounter with a militant by phone.

“Last week, my phone number was published in Sahara Reporters and then I began to get millions of phone calls. One of the first phone calls I took, not knowing who was calling me, was from a militant somewhere, and when I picked up the phone, he asked; ‘Are you the minister of petroleum? and I answered yes.

“He said: ‘I dey go blow pipeline tomorrow’ and I asked why would you do that my brother if you love Nigerians? He asked me; ‘are you sure you are the minister’? and I answered yes. Then he said ‘for being so humble, I will drop the plan,” Kachikwu narrated.
