Nigerian investigative journalist, David Hundeyin, has claimed the Federal Government would kill him if he returned to the country.
Goldennewsng reports that the journalist made the claims during an interview on ‘The REN Experience’, stressing the Nigerian government was after his life for exposing some confidential information.
According to Hundeyin, the Nigerian government wrote a letter to the Ghanaian authority demanding his repatriation after exposing an internal communication within the Nigerian military ordering mobilisation of troops to Sokoto in preparation for operations in the Niger Republic.
The fugitive further alleged that a jet was sent to bring him back to Nigeria, but he had already fled Ghana then.
He said, “I have written high-risk stories that I can’t think of any Nigerian journalist alive or dead who has attempted… Okay, maybe Dele Giwa. And he paid for it with his life. He got a letter bomb, and he died. And that was one such story. I have done several.
“So, there is a reason I can’t step foot in Nigeria. If I step foot in Nigeria, I am going to die. That’s a fact. I will die.”
