Investigative journalist David Hundeyin sends SOS message to authorities in Ghana over fears of extradition plot by Nigeria.
In a 16-minute video which has gone viral, Hundeyin alleged that Nigerian military and secret service agents are plotting to extradit him.
He narrated his journey to refugeehood in Ghana as he fled Nigeria to avoid political persecution.
He told President Nana Akufo-Addo in the video that allowing Nigeria to “bully” Ghana into cancelling his travel papers and revoking his refugee status will leave him vulnerable.
“In short, I will be dead if I am rendered to Nigeria,” he declared.
The journalist alleged that the Nigerian government and military have declared him “an enemy of state” for leaking alleged attack instructions for the Nigerian military to invade Niger to flush out military personnel that forced themselves into power.
Zamfara journalist found dead
The SOS comes on the heels of an announcement that a radio journalist, Hamisu Danjibga, was found dead in the northwest state of Zamfara.
Ibrahim Gada, Zamfara branch secretary of Nigerian Union of Journalists, said Hamisu went missing a week ago but was later found dead in a cesspit.
Here is the NUJ statement:
“Zamfara State Council of NUJ regrets to announce the death of Hamisu Danjibga, a reporter with Voice of Nigeria, VON, whose body was found in a soakaway behind his house three days after missing.
“The discovery of his corpse was a result of an unpleasant odour perceived by Islamiya children in the evening of September 20, 2023, who drew the attention of their teachers.
“After breaking the sock away, the dead body was confirmed to be that of Danjibga by his family and some neighbours. His funeral rites have since been observed according to Islamic injunctions.
“The union extends its heartfelt condolence to the family, Voice of Nigeria, and the entire Zamfara State.
“The council while expressing deep concern over the nature of Danjibga’s demise, appealed to security agencies to thoroughly investigate the matter and bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to justice,” the statement added.
