Ahmed Salkida, the Nigerian journalist reputed to have access to Boko Haram, has said that his life is ruined and that he has been rendered homeless while his family is scared.
This comes after he was declared wanted by the army and subsequently arrested and released by the DSS.
Salkida tweeted that the threat to his life is more serious than what is in the public domain, noting that he has been silent because he wanted to give the government the benefit of doubt.
His tweets read: “My life is ruined, I have been rendered homeless, I have been told that I have NO rights at all, my family is scared, my crime is journalism”
“I have been silent, I have given leaders the benefit of doubt, but now it is time to fight back while I can. My life is in DANGER!!!!”
“The last one month has been one of the most difficult in my life, the threat to my life is more serious than what is in the public domain…”
He blasted the government for declaring him wanted, adding that the action has ruined his life and that of his family.
He queried: “What kind of Govt will declare a citizen wanted for doing nothing but journalism, ruined my life and that of my family. Govt just said ‘it was a misunderstanding,’ but to hell with you, you are on your own. What kind of Govt will do this to a harmless patriotic citizen?”
