Anthony Nwoko, a popular Pro-Biafra prophet, has been reportedly killed in Enugu.
Concise News gathered that the prophet was a close ally of leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
According to Daily Sun, the cleric was reportedly killed by unknown assailants at his apartment located at No. 18 Ezebinugwu Street, beside Bright Land International School, Ugbene 2, in the Trans-Ekulu-Abakpa axis of Enugu.
It was gathered that Nwoko lived alone as his death was not noticed until his neighbour saw that the door of his apartment had remained open; peeped in and saw the man in the pool of his blood.
However, the caretaker of the compound alerted the police.
No official report has come from the Enugu State Police Command, but it was learnt that they had initially arrested occupants of the compound.
Before his death, Nwoko had taken to social media, particularly Facebook, to speak about his relationship with Kanu.
According to him, it 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 money-making
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 Peoples 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”.
