A man living in Sokoto State said he has been receiving death threats for supporting the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, for the 2023 election in Nigeria.
Jamilu Sufi, a Muslim, disclosed this on Twitter.
He said he has been receiving calls from someone threatening to kill him. He also said the person contacted his wife and has threatened to kill her too if Sufi refuses to withdraw his support for Mr Obi.
“I don’t succumb to blackmail and threats,” Mr Sufi said in the post.
He included the phone number of the person who has been calling to make the threats and added that the person speaks Igbo and Hausa fluently.
He wrote: “It got to a point that he called my wife and threatened to kill her too. I blocked him but he and other guys continued.”
He said the man also sent him voice notes via WhatsApp and threatened to kill him.
He added that he has reported the matter to the police in Sokoto State.
