publisher raises alarm over threat to life

The publisher of Community Watchdog newspaper, over the weekend, narrated how some persons, suspected to be hired thugs.

According to him, the latest of such incidents, happened at Rock View Hotel, close to government house, Owerri on Saturday 7th October 2017, where the publisher, was said to have arrived for a meeting with some persons.

Narrating his experience, Comrade Nwadike said, “shortly after I arrived at Rock View Hotel, I received a call from an unknown person, who called me with an MTN number 08038997133 and asked if I was the person he saw at the hotel. When I enquired of his identity and where he was calling from, he banged the phone. When I called back, the person picked the call and I heard him saying in the background, “he is the one, he is the one”. He probably did not know that I was hearing him. At that point, I quickly left the place because, from all indications, they were hanging around and waiting for me, with a sinister motive.”

Continuing, the publisher said they have written several petitions to the Imo State Commissioner of Police, in respect of alleged attempts to assassinate him and surprisingly, till date, those suspected have not been invited for questioning as expected, “and their threats get worse by the day. Sometimes, I am trailed for long distances by unknown vehicles.” However, I can’t be moved by such threat. Man does not own a life, God does and no man should cow the other for speaking out especially when  graft agencies have vindicated the publication made by Watchdog Newspapers”.

Most people are of the opinion that the alleged threats to Comrade Nwadike’s life are not unconnected with the issue of the missing bailout fund, which Community Watchdog newspaper, brought to public domain.
