Ahmad Salkida, a journalist linked with terrorist sect, Boko Haram, has accused the Nigerian government of ruining his life.

According to Salkida, he has become homeless because the army declared him wanted over his alleged ties to the sect.

“My life is ruined, I have been rendered homeless, I have been told that I have NO rights at all, my family is scared, my crime is journalism,” he wrote via Twitter.

 

"The last one month has been one of the most difficult in my life, the threat to my life is more serious than what is in the public domain.

 

“What kind of Govt will declare a citizen wanted for doing nothing but journalism, ruined my life and that of my family. Govt just said 'it was a misunderstanding,' but to hell with you, you are on your own. What kind of Govt will do this to a harmless patriotic citizen?” he added.

 

Salkida was declared wanted in August following Boko Haram’s release of a video showing some of the abducted Chibok girls.
