MİT Sending Weapons to Nigeria With THY?
A new recording has been leaked by the Başçalan Haramzadeler Youtube account, allegedly of a conversation between Mustafa Varank, the chief advisor to Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan, and Turkish Airlines (THY) Executive Assistant Mehmet Karakaş on the issue of weapons deliveries to Nigeria using THY planes to transport the goods to the west African nation. With Karakaş asking bluntly whether the weapons are “going to kill Muslims or Christians…,” and references made to Turkish intelligence service MİT chief Hakan Bey, this latest leak has caused outrage across the nation and could very well open the door to serious consequences should these allegations be proved true.
MK: Mustafa, salamu alaykum.
MV: Alaykum salam, brother.
MK: Mustafa, I brought up an issue with you, if you remember? About the question of transport…
MV: About that, we couldn’t meet with Mr Hakan, that’s why I didn’t get back to you.
MK: Come on, Mustafa.
MV: This is very urgent.
MK: We are transporting a lot of equipment, its going to Nigeria right now, OK? Is this going to kill Muslims or Christians…
MV: I’ve got it, brother.
MK: We are committing a sin, so you know.
MV: Alright. I will let you know in one or two days.
MK: God bless. And give them the contact number, too. Let them talk to him. OK?
MV: Alright. See you.
