A popular prophet from the east, Anthony Nwoko, has been allegedly murdered in cold blood in Enugu, according to The Sun.
Nwoko who was a close ally of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, prayed for him and the group in their struggle to achieve Biafra.
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.
