Is Nigeria’s Minister of Communications Isa Ali Pantami on the US Terror List?

There is no publicly available evidence that Mr Pantami is on the US watch list for terrorism. Since the Terrorist Screening Database, commonly known as “the watchlist”, is derived from classified intelligence and/or sensitive law enforcement information, the Terrorist Screening Center cannot confirm or deny whether any individual may be included in the watchlist. It says disclosure of such information would significantly impair the government's ability to investigate and mitigate terrorism and expose sensitive national security information.
