It would be recalled that a radical Muslim cleric, Ahmad al-Assir was arrested by Lebanese authorities as he attempted to leave Lebanon to Nigeria via Cairo.
Al-Assir was arrested with a valid Nigerian Visa.
The Federal Government swiftly ordered a full investigation into how a wanted terrorist was granted Nigerian Visa in Lebanon to visit Nigeria.
