A former lawmaker in the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani has charged Nigerian investigative journalist, David Hundeyin, to jettison fear and return to Nigeria.
Senator Sani said this on Saturday in a post on his X account where he also charged the Ghanaian president to give Hundeyin all the protection he deserves in Ghana.
The former lawmaker said this in response to Hundeyin’s claim that the Federal Government of Nigeria was after his life because he leaked a secret document on the plan of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to invade Niger Republic.
The controversial journalist, who is currently in Ghana after fleeing Nigeria in 2020 appealed to the Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, not to allow the Nigerian government to take him from the country.
News About Nigeria gathered that before the 2023 presidential election, Hundeyin published an expose against the then All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer and current president, Bola Tinubu titled, ‘Bola Ahmed Tinubu: From Drug Lord To Presidential Candidate.’
Shehu Sani’s statement concerning the journalist reads: “David should be given all the protection he deserves from the Ghanaian authorities. But it should be noted that African countries don’t grant exile status to dissidents, opponents or critics of other African Governments. They either allow one to pass on transit or ‘catch and handover’ to your country or if you prove too stubborn, they frame and imprison you.
“His name is David, he should not fear the Lion’s Den, he should come back and face the Goliath,” he wrote.
