Disgraced blogger, David Hundeyin, took to X (formerly Twitter) to lament his personal misfortune years after exiling himself over fears of litigation on the numerous defamatory reports he authored against several individuals and organizations.
Hundeyin, who is known for concocting sourceless “investigative reports” against entities as retribution for declining his requests or disagreeing with him on a subject, mourned his lack of a “fixed address” for five years.
He revealed that his support for Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party who came third in the last election, was due to the fact that he views his presidency as the only hope of a personal rehabilitation.
Hundeyin is not alone in this ambition. Other rogue elements, including top-ranking members of proscribed terror group IPOB, have equally announced their consideration of Obi’s presidency as a sure path to achieve their subversive agenda.
Although Hundeyin regards himself as a journalist, his claim has been debunked by decorated media figures in the country who point out his non-compliance with age-long ethics of the profession, notably impartiality, fair hearing, and accuracy.
He was also recently booted from a U.K. educational institution over allegations of sexism and unauthorised commercial activities with a self-confessed fake professor, a development which saw him engage in a damaging media battle with the student-run news outfit of the institution.
In the long rant published to twitter today, Hundeyin encouraged supporters of Peter Obi to take to violence and cause a breakdown in law and order, similar to the Arab Spring, if the Tribunal’s verdict doesn’t go their way tomorrow, as is widely expected due to the weak nature of the filed petition.
He is part of a number of Nigerians who though not physically present in the country and thus insulated from any chaos that ensues, have been instigating and egging their audience to embrace violence in pursuit of their partisan objectives.
