Abuja- Boko Haram leader, Kabiru Umar, denied meeting the Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North.
The alleged mastermind of the Madala Catholic Church bombing, Kabiru Umar, dismissed the reports and accused the committee of feeding Nigerians with lies.
Speaking through his lawyer, he maintained that as the committee was visiting the Kuje Prison, he was standing trial before the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court.
“I think the press is supposed to pick information, investigate such information before making it available to the public.
"But I think what they have been doing in this regard is to sit down and wait for people to feed them with lies,” he said.
The lawyer said Sokoto confirmed there was no meeting between him and any member of the amnesty committee.
“That means these honourable members of the Nigerian society have been brandishing lies about a process that they have on their own initiated and agreed to carry on," Sokoto said.
