Prophet Anthony Nwoko, a close ally of Nnamdi Kano has been 'murdered'

Renowned prophet, Anthony Nwoko, has been reportedly murdered in Enugu after receiving several threats to his life.

According to The Sun, Nwoko, a close ally of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, who prayed for him and

the group in their struggle to achieve Biafra has died.

The newspaper reports that the prophet was killed by unknown assailants last Sunday night at his apartment located at

No. 18 Ezebinugwu Street, beside Bright Land International School, Ugbene 2, in the Trans-Ekulu-Abakpa axis of Enugu.

However, nothing about Nwoko’s death was heard days after because he lived alone.

According to the report, his death became known when a neighbour noticed that the door of his apartment had remained open;

peeped in and saw the man in the pool of his blood.

The attention of the caretaker of the compound was called, who immediately alerted the police, who responded to the scene.

No official report has come from the Enugu State Police Command, but the newspaper added that they had initially arrested

occupants of the compound.

Before his death, Nwoko had taken to his Facebook page to speak about his relationship with Kanu.

He said their relationship went sour after the IPOB leader made him relocate from Lagos to Enugu only to abandon him.

His last posts on Facebook were at about 1:40 pm on April 14, where he uploaded various online reports of his views on

Biafra agitation, including video clips from Kpakpando TV.

He had in press conferences on January 8 and March 18, 2019, respectively, accused Kanu and some other pro-Biafra campaigners

of turning the agitation into a money-making venture.

Nwoko had raised the alarm that he was receiving death threats from members of the IPOB over his bribery allegations against their leader, Kanu.

The cleric had claimed that Kanu not only collected huge sums of monies as bribe from the presidential candidate of the

People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, ahead of the February 23 election but planned to return to Nigeria to “consolidate

on his Biafra propaganda if Atiku had won”.

“They have been calling me with different lines, making different phone calls, threatening my life. They are calling me fake

because I stand by the truth. I went to Kuje prison to pray for Nnamdi Kanu and the next court case he was released.

“I went to Affara-Ukwu to tell him the way forward; he did not listen. Many people are not listening to the voice of God and they

want me to be that way. Prophet Nwoko says no. I will never compromise.

“Even if they kill me, I will return with the light of heaven. I am not afraid of the people of the world. I am telling Uche Mefor

and IPOB to stop threatening my life. Let me put this straight to everyone: I am ready to die standing by the truth

because that is why Jesus Christ came for.

“If everybody will keep quiet, this nation will be destroyed. If everybody will keep quiet, Biafra will not come. Let people know the truth.”

The prophet hailed from Umuahia in Abia state.
