Omoyele Sowore, human rights activist and the publisher of SaharaReporters, an online newspapers has alleged that the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and Godwin Emefiele, the Central Bank of Nigeria governor are planning to assassinate him.
Sowore in a series of tweets on his verified twitter handle said the plot against him has been on for weeks.
According to him, those scheming to assassinate him had put a bounty on him, further stating that he was either to be arrested or murdered.
See his tweets below.
Information reaching me now is that a signal from DIA (Defence Intelligence Agency) has put a bounty on my head, that I must be arrested or murdered as they claim I’d resist arrest in the next 24hrs! This is from the Defence HQ here is Abuja! Let it be known that this can’t affect the struggle for freedom.
The plot against me has been on for weeks now, and I’ve been aware until the signal sent to security agencies leaked tonight. There is a businessman linked with the @mbuhari regime who threatened me for weeks unending since #endsars started.
Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami @MalamiSan and new chief of staff, Ibrahim Gambari and @HQNigerianArmy chief, Buratai are all involved! @cenbank Governor, Godwin Emefiele is bankrolling the deadly plot
Just yesterday @MalamiSan went to an FCT court headed by Justice AB Muhammed to obtain an exparte order against me and @SaharaReporters, he want to make it look like his part of it is “civil” to pretend he wasn’t part of the assassination squad they put together!
The @policeng team dispatched to the NASS on Friday opened fire on me and stole one of my vehicles, they refused to return it even it was meant for PRESS duties, the FCT Police Commissioner, Bala Ciroma told me the car committed a crime and will be charged, it was shocking
Over the week their minions wrote press releases, letters to foreign embassies, @TheNationNews was generous in claiming some “Genuine EndSars” people want me arrested. The @HQNigerianArmy had a team of @twitter influencers on Sunday suggesting I should be assassinated.
