If I step foot in Nigeria, I’m going to die– David Hundeyin
David Hundeyin, a Nigerian investigative journalist, has claimed that he would be killed if he returned to the country.
The fugitive claimed that the federal government was after his life for exposing some confidential information. Hundeyin further claimed that the Nigerian government wrote a letter to the Ghanaian authority demanding his repatriation after he exposed an “internal communication within the Nigerian military ordering mobilization of troops to Sokoto in preparation for operations in the Niger Republic.”
He alleged that a jet was sent to bring him back to Nigeria but he had already fled Ghana at that time. He made claims in a recent podcast interview, The REN Experience.

He got a letter bomb and he died. And that was one such story. I have done several.
